A major commercial project has officially topped-out at 25 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The building will bring a phenomenal amount of office space to the area, along with room for retail and production facilities. Rubenstein Partners and Heritage Equity Partners are developing the full-block eight-story structure.
The project yields 500,000 square feet, which is expected to house businesses in the tech, creative, design, and light manufacturing industries. A TAMI/Maker Hub is expected to open this fall.
70,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space will be opened to the public once construction finished, which includes a waterfront restaurant.
Hollwich Kushner and Gensler are responsible for the design. The style is a nod to Williamsburg’s industrial past, with traditional brick prominently included alongside curtain wall exposures.
Construction is expected to wrap by 2019, though some facilities will be open earlier.
