Smile NEW YORK | 416-420 Kent Ave | FT | 24 FLOORS x3

Back from the recession. Originally proposed in 2006.
-------------------------

Quote:
Rector Hylan, owner of the property at the former Kedem Winery lot at 420-430 Kent Ave., asked for Community Board 1's support this month to renew its original 2006 permit to build 18- and 24-story towers with 450 apartment units, with 20 percent affordable, for a second time.

Then, the board voted to support renewing the Rose Plaza on the River development at 462-490 Kent Ave., five buildings with 754 units, 226 of which are affordable — a project initially approved in 2010.

A 39-story mixed-used development approved in 2009 at 145 and 155 West St. in Greenpoint also gained the board's support to renew its permit, which includes 140 units of affordable housing in a separate building from one that's market rate.

The projects would also all feature developer-built public green space.

The 2008 recession and financing issues largely kept the developments from moving forward.

They now hope to break ground early next year, she said.

West Street's designs are old enough now that design would not fly under new zoning laws, which require integrated below-market and market rate units in the same building — a detail that brought pause to Community Board 1's land use committee, said committee chair Del Teague.

Some committee members struggled with the fact that they were not together, Teague said. Others wanted to approve the plan since it had been approved before. But ultimately, the board supported the renewal, a vote that's advisory to city officials.

Richard Mazur, executive director of North Brooklyn Development Corp., said in a statement to the board this month that locals — from schools to churches — are eager to see the West Street project finished to bring affordable housing to the Greenpoint waterfront.

Could a mod rename this to:

NEW YORK | 420-430 Kent Ave | FT | 18/24 FLOORS | 2 Towers

So far we have:

1) 145-155 West Street : 39 Floors
2) 420-430 Kent Ave: 18 to 24 Floors
3) 462-490 Kent Avenue: 18, 24, 29 floors and two other towers with unknown floor figures.

Permits Filed: ODA Designing 18 and 22-Story Towers at 420 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg



Quote:
Williamsburg’s waterfront is host to several high-profile new developments either under construction or in the works, and now we can add 420 Kent Avenue to that list. There, two blocks south of the Williamsburg Bridge, Spitzer Enterprises is developing a two-towered complex, for which the architect will be ODA.

The new job filing mixes the figures between the towers, and the given roof height of 185 feet is likely for the 18-story building outlined in the Schedule A (which will have 179 units). Its 22-story companion is slightly more mysterious, but the total number of units listed in the permit is 270, which share 311,224 square feet of residential square footage between the two buildings. At the ground level, 420 Kent Avenue will have 2,001 square feet of retail space.

Crain’s reported that the site went into contract over the summer, with Spitzer buying its 2.8 acres for $165 million. Plans have evidently shifted dramatically from an initial proposal back in 2006, which had to navigate through ULURP.

[...]

ODA’s conception for the site will certainly be more appealing than the previous iteration, which thankfully never got too close to leaving the drawing boards. Nearby, some of ODA’s Brooklyn projects include a subdued and contextual mid-rise at 190 South 1st Street, and on the larger side, a 30-story tower at 436 Albee Square.

Eliot Spitzer’s Spitzer Engineering filed plans today for the second of two rental buildings slated for its waterfront Williamsburg project.

Plans call for a 16-story, 165-foot-tall building at 416-418 Kent Avenue with about 200 rental units. The structure will span 151,764 square feet and include a 2,865-square-foot ground-floor retail space and 223-car parking garage.

Last month, Spitzer filed plans for an 18-story apartment building at 420-444 Kent Avenue, as previously reported. The other property on the site was expected to rise 22 stories.

Spitzer entered contract to buy the 2.8-acre Williamsburg site in August for $165 million, as TRD reported, taking over from developer Rector Hylan Corp., which was long slated to be a project with affordable housing, as The Real Deal reported in December.

Aptsandlofts.com is handling leasing for the project, David Maundrell told The Real Deal. ODA is serving as the architect of record for both buildings. A representative for Spitzer declined to comment. - See more at: http://therealdeal.com/blog/2015/01/....wCqaXhcN.dpuf

Nice. Looks pretty bulky. Could probably support an excess of 500 units (both towers). More towers like this the better to supply units to a much needed market.

Rendering of 420-430 Kent Avenue by ODA Architecture revealed

Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Jessica Dailey

Quote:
Former governor Eliot Spitzer is moving full steam ahead with his South Williamsburg development, and the Times has all the details on what to expect. The site, located at 420-430 Kent Avenue on the East River, just south of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Domino development, will hold three 24-story towers deigned by ODA, and, unsurprisingly, they will look like stacks of boxes—or, as ODA's Eran Chen puts it, a "molded iceberg, sculpted to create the maximum number of views and outdoor spaces." Building permits were approved last week, so construction is imminent.

Previous plans for the site called for two towers and 413 apartments, but Spitzer has grander plans. His development will create a whopping 856 rental apartments, with 20 percent of those being affordable. The project also includes a public park, waterfront esplanade, and two rooftop pools. David Maundrell of aptsandlofts, which will market the buildings, says the development will be "authentic Brooklyn, not an extension of Manhattan."

The area is booming with new buildings, but Spitzer isn't concerned with the competition. "Can Williamsburg absorb 4,000 units?' he said to the Times. "I don't think there's any question the answer is yes." That is probably true, but can North Brooklyn's subway lines handle the amount of people 4,000 new units will bring?

Love it! Although Williamsburg desperately needs better transportation / subway access. The L at Bedford at rush hour is already well over capacity.

I like this proposal. I just happened to walk by this site yesterday after I got off the East River Ferry at South Williamsburg, right at Schaffer Landing. I like how the infill is coming along in this area, which for too long has had too many empty and under-utilized lots. The under-construction Ostoon across the street from this proposal, along Kent, is looking good, as are other under-construction sites just east of this.

Obviously there is the yet-to-be-built giant domino complex to the immediate north of the Williamsburg bridge, but what I'm really curious about is what will eventually happen to surrounding area below the Williamsburg Bridge along South 5th and South 6th, This area has the potential to be a mini-dumbo. The bridge itself, along with the irregular-shaped blocks in the street grid created by the merging of streets as the southern grid of Williamsburg collides with the northern grid, give this area a lot of character. If the right architecture continues to be built in the trapazoid created by the river and and the BQE (on the west and east), and between S. 3rd and S. 9th (on the north and the south), this area under the Williamsburg bridge is going to be quite spectacular in another decade, and very unlike any other specific area of North Brooklyn.

As for subway access, much improvement is needed, of course. But this development won't hugely impact L traffic. This is much closer the JMZ, which itself needs much improved service as this area, and the areas to the east toward Bushwick, get built out.

Ah! You are right - this is much closer to the JMZ. For some reason, I was thinking this site was next to the Edge and Northside Piers. I've always thought a light rail that goes north / south on Kent & West Streets (maybe connecting inland and subway stations) would greatly improve transportation along the entire Brooklyn waterfront. Especially if it continued up to Queens.

I agree. I think a light rail line running through this part of Williamsburg and then THROUGH THE NAVY YARD (which currently acts as a giant obstacle between the North Brooklyn waterfront and DUMBO) and then on through Vinegar Hill and Dumbo, then alongside/behind the Brooklyn Bridge Park (under the BQE) and then down Columbia Street to Red Hook. That line would tie in neighborhoods that are all desirable to visit, all going through huge growth, and all under-served by mass transit. And it would be a fraction of the cost of trying to do a subway line, which would be very difficult to do anyway because of the proximity to the shore, and also would be too insanely expensive to even contemplate. If the light rail line tied in somehow to the subway lines in Long Island City to the north, all the better. Perhaps on the southern end it could loop over to Industry City (with giant potential all its own) and then end somewhere near the 36th Street express stop on the fourth avenue N,R,D lines.

Anyway, I'm know I'm getting off the specific topic of the 420-430 Kent proposal, but if Williamsburg and the rest of the Brooklyn waterfront is to reach its full potential, something like this will be needed.

There's been some somewhat serious talk about a light rail line that would run from Red Hook up to Astoria along the East River waterfront. Nearly the entire stretch is booming with development and subways are sometimes 10 or more blocks inland.

Great use of the land. Long time coming, but they bounce back. Along the coast, Brooklyn, Queens, and even the Bronx waterfront, parcels are being bought for affordable housing. Keep an eye on certain parcels adjacent to Harlem on the East River. Two large scale parcels that will include 1000's of units and another, in the South Bronx, with the potential for 3k units.

I've heard about that. The idea is floating around community boards and even in City Hall, and would be great to accommodate the thousands of units that will come online by 2017/18. Even now, it is needed and could further grow the area.

That is really nice! It gives me high hopes that the Luv Gov will deliver something really nice for his Hudson Yards projects.

Bill de Blasio Official Calls Eliot Spitzer Housing Development ‘Offensive’

Ross Barkan
06/16/15

Quote:
A de Blasio administration official said today that an Eliot Spitzer-spearheaded housing development is “offensive”–and called into question whether the former Democratic governor is really a progressive.

“Elliot [sic] Spitzer is planning to build an 856 unit mega development along the waterfront just south of the Williamsburg Bridge – and with just 20% affordable apartments. We need and deserve more affordable housing!” Lincoln Restler, a senior policy adviser to Mayor Bill de Blasio, wrote on Facebook today.

A question of economics here. De Blasio's being selfish. Waterfront views should not be affordable, and the land is prime space. If he wants affordable housing, focus on increasing the projected goal, incentivize developers, continue to modify the zoning in the outer boroughs near transit lines, and they will make room for it.

Spitzer’s first development foray ‘socks’ the waterfront
The ex-governor returns to his real estate roots with three bulky towers just south of the Williamsburg Bridge

August 01, 2015
By James Gardner

Quote:
Three hulking, deconstructed and robotic monsters — I mean that in a good way — will soon rise over the Williamsburg waterfront. And if the renderings are to be believed, they look as though they might be able to lay waste to Lower Manhattan.

The renderings are of developments, each of them 24 stories tall, at 416-420 Kent Avenue that will represent former Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s maiden journey on the road to New York City real estate developer. The architect of the project, Eran Chen, of ODA Architects, describes the design (more gently than I have) as a “molded iceberg, sculpted to create the maximum number of views and outdoor spaces.” Spitzerville will include a park and an esplanade along the river.

Very nice. So 4 x 24 floors.

NEW YORK | 420-430 Kent Ave | FT | 24 FLOORS x3

Change to: NEW YORK | 420-430 Kent Ave | FT | 24 FLOORS x4

Thanks mods

Wish the rendering was larger. The glass looks phenomenal.

New Views and Renderings of Eliot Spitzer’s ODA-Designed Williamsburg Mega-Development

MARCH 28, 2016
ONDEL HYLTONIN

Quote:
Construction and excavation is now underway on Spitzer Enterprises’ trifecta of towers along the South Williamsburg waterfront. Set to rise from a three-acre parcel at 416-430 Kent Avenue, between Broadway and South 9th Street, the development is graced with nearly 400 feet of prized East River frontage. Approved permits filed with the Department of Buildings detail that the plan will comprise 857 rental apartments within three 22-story towers. A publicly accessible park and esplanade will run along the shoreline and connect to the the existing esplanade of the Schaefer Landing development to the south.
