When Two Trees Management unveiled their Domino Sugar site master plan in 2013, it was made known that SHoP Architects would design two of the four new buildings while the others would be handed off to other design firms. Last April, it was announced that COOKFOX Architects is behind the design of the second tower at 260 Kent Avenue and a year and change later, the project has made its way above ground.
Set to top out at 42 floors (435 feet), the two-towered building will be the tallest in Williamsburg, besting the nearby towers of 1N4th and Level. 260 Kent rises on the northernmost site of Two Trees' Domino Sugar Master Plan fronting the newly-opened Domino Park. The Jed Walentas-led firm debuted the six-acre park and esplanade earlier this month where highlights include relics from the site's sugar-refining past, a taco kiosk from Danny Meyer, and a children’s playground designed by Mark Reigelman.

Inside will be 330 rental apartments, of which more than twenty percent will be earmarked as affordable housing. Additionally, the building's will accommodate 150,000 square feet of offices and 13,000 square feet of retail. Filed plans with the city show residential amenities include a business lounge, kid's room, fitness center, and several communal terraces.
Echoing the original vision outlined by SHoP Architects, COOKFOX specifies two interlocking towers that share a common 3-floor retail podium. Its roof will be topped by a shared outdoor recreation space for both residential and workplace tenants. The 22-story-tall northern tower will contain office space with boutique-sized 6,000-square-foot floor plates, while the southern tower holds apartments that will rise substantially higher.

According to the team, the tower's skin is inspired by the molecular pattern and forms of sugar crystals. The sprawling Domino Sugar manufacturing facility occupied the 11-acre waterfront site for 123 years before closing in 2004. The façade will be constructed of angled, precast concrete whose deeply-recessed windows and faceted components will result in an interesting play of light and shadow. Additionally, the façade is designed to self-shade with each elevation formed to respond to its specific solar orientation.
