Domino Sugar Refinery site looks like a candy-colored ziggurat

More views of the doughnut-shaped Williamsburg building

It wasn’t too long ago that we took a look at the progress on 325 Kent Avenue, the doughnut-shaped rental rising on the Williamsburg waterfront as part of the larger Domino Sugar Refinery megaproject.

The 16-story building, designed by SHoP Architects, is getting closer to completion, with the skybridge that gives it its unique shape being put in place. And now, a set of photos from Tectonic show the progress on the other side of the building. Whereas the side that faces the East River will broadcast its whimsical look to the city, the other side of the building (facing Wythe Avenue) is stepped, making room for the development’s 500 apartments.

The affordable housing lottery for its 104 low- to mixed-income apartments recently ended, and move-ins are due to happen sometime this summer. The site was in the news in December when a construction worker at the site fell to his death.

Tectonic also took a drone video of the waterfront, giving more of a bird’s-eye view of progress on the larger Domino site:
