The newest tower in the Domino waterfront redevelopment has reached the height of the Williamsburg Bridge.
Site D, the southern most section of the property, is a two-tower designed with a shared base. The site is also known as 346 Kent.
The towers broke ground back in June, with speculation that there was an attempt to beat the clock on expiring 421a tax abatements.
The two towers are beginning to emerge from the base. The front faces the Williamsburg Bridge to the southeast. The towers have gone through various redesigns, originally including a 52-story tower. NYYIMBY reports that the towers are now 36 and 31-stories tall.
The end of the Williamsburg Bridge is visible to the right in the above photo. Fifth floor units will have staring contests with bicyclists on the bike path.
From the water looking back toward the tower, the mass of the base becomes visible. There will be 600 apartment units when the tower is completed.
The building is backed with $364m in loans and should be completed by 2024.
From Kent Avenue, the construction has overflowed into the street, with bicyclists channeled under scaffolding.
The complex was poking above ground back in December.
The first tower built (left) seems relatively small compared to the base of this tower.
The scale of the tower compared to the Williamsburg Bridge is more visible from Domino Park.
Work is also continuing on the restoration of the main factory which will feature apartments and a venue space on the top floor.
In January, the historic Domino Sugar sign was restored the factory building.
