Construction is complete and tenants have begun moving into The Kent House, a seven-story mixed-use building at 187 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, the project is designed by Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. and developed by CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million. The 140,036-square-foot structure contains 96 homes.
Recent photos show the finished look of the red-brick masonry façade, which features a dash of scattered white bricks. A modern take on classic New York industrial design, the structure incorporates an array of balconies with black decorative railings, a mix of black arched and square industrial-style windows, and a row of two-story metal arches along the first two floors.
The ground floor and second floor contain 22,108 square feet of retail space. The second level also houses a private 170-vehicle parking garage. Residences range from studios to three-bedroom layouts and come with amenities such as a gym, a laundry room, a virtual doorman, a game room, a rooftop, an indoor and outdoor lounge, co-working space, a media room, a bicycle room, and a mail and package room. The Kent House is also pet-friendly. Studios vary from 359 to 513 square feet; one-bedrooms range between 451 to 680 square feet; two-bedrooms span between 650 to 915 square feet; and three-bedrooms measure between 875 to 1,020 square feet. Each unit type comes with two different layouts, and almost every option comes with either a balcony or a terrace.
187 Kent Avenue is a short walk from the North Williamsburg ferry terminal and is also not far from Domino Park. The nearest subway is the L train at Bedford Avenue, while the J, M, and Z trains are also nearby at the elevated Marcy Avenue station by the intersection of Broadway and Havemeyer Street.
