Exterior work is wrapping up on 200 Kent Avenue, a six-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by ME Architect P.C., the 125,000-square-foot development stands 83 feet tall and is being developed by Cornell Realty Management, which purchased the full-block parcel for $33 million with two anonymous entities nearly four years ago. The site is bound by Kent Avenue to the east, Metropolitan Avenue to the south, River Street to the west, and North 3rd Street to the north.
Last week, the top half of One Vanderbilt‘s 100-foot-tall architectural spire was finally replaced at the pinnacle of the 77-story Midtown East supertall. The spire was first put in place when the 1,401-foot-tall skyscraper topped out on September 18, 2019, but was disassembled in mid-December to make it easier for the construction crane to swing about. The reinstallation marks a major construction milestone for the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed office tower, which is getting close to completion.
Work is nearing completion on 302 Broadway, a six-story mixed-use building in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm PAUL and developed by Kazi Billah, the reinforced concrete superstructure rises 65 feet tall and yields 26,070 square feet. The property includes 5,790 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 5,790 square feet of medical offices on the second floor, a 12-car garage on the third floor, and 24 residential units from the fourth to sixth floors.
Foundation work is nearing completion at 159 Broadway, a 26-story mixed-use residential project in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Stonehill Taylor and developed by Cornell Realty Management LLC, the 133,340-square-foot project is located across the street from Peter Luger Steakhouse and directly abuts the 145-year-old landmarked Williamsburgh Savings Bank. The superstructure will top out at 277 feet tall and become one of the tallest buildings in the inland section of Williamsburg.
Construction is progressing on 308 Livingston Street, a 23-story, 160-unit rental building in Downtown Brooklyn. The project is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and is being developed by Lonicera Partners, which purchased the lot in May 2019 for $11 million and demolished several low-rise structures to clear the way for the project.
