The development has three 22-story towers that will bring 857 apartments to the neighborhood

Via Field Condition

The Eliot Spitzer-developed megaproject in South Williamsburg has made significant progress since we last checked in with the site in June last year. All three towers that make up the development have either topped out or are close to topping out, and one of the three is now nearly fully clad in its glass facade.

Field Condition recently stopped by the construction site, which is comprised of three 22-story buildings designed by ODA New York, which will bring 857 apartments to the neighborhood. About 20 percent of these apartments have been earmarked for affordable housing.

Developed by Spitzer’s namesake company, Spitzer Enterprises, the project has an official address of 420 Kent Avenue, and is just south of the Domino megaproject. The development will also include 70,000 square feet of publicly-accessible open space, including a new boardwalk along the East River.

The unique, protruding box-like structure of the development means there will be a ton of corner apartments here as well as several outdoor terraces. Work on the development is scheduled to wrap by the end of the year.
