Rendering of One Domino Square (Two Trees and Selldorf Architects) Rendering of One Domino Square (Two Trees and Selldorf Architects)
While waterfront real estate is some of New York City's most coveted, regularly ranking among the top sales and highest-priced contracts, Brooklyn apartments along the East River enjoy the bonus of Manhattan skyline vistas along with peaceful river views. DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights have breathed new life into the local real estate markets, but Williamsburg is not to be counted out.
The redevelopment of the Domino Sugar Factory site is a key factor in the rise of the Williamsburg waterfront. Domino Park is going strong and gearing up for a busy spring season. Saga Hospitality Group recently signed a lease for a bakery and restaurant in The Refinery at Domino for its first Brooklyn location, set to open in late 2024. Finally, while a number of architecturally impressive buildings are currently leasing, the first condos are about to come to market: One Domino Square has risen on the parcel closest to the Williamsburg Bridge, and the condos on the top floors will enjoy spectacular bridge, water, and skyline views for it.

As we wait for the latest updates, we take a look at other recent and upcoming buildings on the neighborhoods' waterfront. For the Williamsburg, Greenpoint, DUMBO, and Brooklyn Heights buildings now selling and leasing, some of their apartments offer front-row seats of the waterfront's revitalization, not to mention spectacular views of the skyline and access to some of the city's most manicured open spaces.

In addition to spectacular waterfront views, the condo units are expected to feature ceilings up to 11 feet high, white oak flooring, oversized, operable windows with solar and blackout shades, in-unit laundry, and Wifi-enabled Nest thermostats. Kitchens will come in a choice of Warm and Cool palettes and offer fully integrated Gaggenau appliances. A sales launch is on the horizon with prices to start at $1.3 million for one-bedrooms, $2.225 million for two-bedrooms, and $3.06 million for three-bedrooms.

470-Kent-Avenue-1 480-490 Kent Avenue
In 2010, the city approved a rezoning that would have allowed for a set of five residential towers to rise on the 2.3-acre Rose Plaza development site on the Williamsburg waterfront. The project hit several snags including, but not limited to, the Great Recession, the property's contamination with pollutants, and the untimely death of one of the developers. However, The Real Deal reported that Naftali Group entered contract to buy the site for a price between $180 and $185 million in February 2019. The developer received a construction loan to complete the project in November 2022, and construction is now underway.

Upon completion, the three-building project will include Naftali Group’s first Brooklyn condo offering; the rest of the units will be rentals. It is a short distance from the South Williamsburg ferry terminal, but will nevertheless include 256 parking spaces. Additional amenities are expected to include bike rooms, mail rooms, pet grooming stations, lounges, game rooms, and roof terraces. Work is taking place in phases, and the first phase’s completion is estimated for 2025.

The sheer height of the new buildings will allow for spectacular neighborhood and river views, and the slope will make the most of them. 263 of the 1,050 new units will be permanently affordable at an average of 60% area median income.

It has counted 29Rooms and Smorgasburg among its temporary tenants, and streetwear brand KITH relocated its Noho headquarters into the third floor of the new building in 2019; a new store followed in spring 2023.

The iconic Domino Sugar Factory has been the cornerstone of this section of the Williamsburg waterfront for over 100 years. While its historic architecture has been carefully restored, the factory interiors were gutted with the smell of sugar in the air and, according to Two Trees principal Jed Walentas, walls weeping molasses.

Upon completion of the demolition, a steel and glass office with a net-zero carbon infrastructure went up inside the space and opened in September 2023. Employees arrive to a triple-height atrium lobby, and the structure is topped with a glass dome penthouse with 360-degree river and skyline views.

Bushwick-Inlet-Park-1 Aerial rendering via Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park
On the cusp of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Bushwick Inlet Park demonstrates that Domino Sugar Refinery isn't the only onetime industrial area that can be transformed into something modern, eco-friendly, and beautiful. The heavily polluted oil tanks are gone, and the site is now home to a multipurpose sports field, a playground, and an environmentally friendly community center with a green roof. Plans are in the works to build a continuous Bushwick Inlet Park, and a pop-up park at 50 Kent Avenue is part of this effort.

500 Kent Avenue
500-Kent-Avenue-01 Rendering of 500 Kent Avenue (Marvel Architects)
To the chagrin of local preservationists, a red brick building dating back to 1905 and used as a power generation system for Con Ed until 1999 was demolished in 2009. Soil remediation work has taken place, but the site has otherwise sat empty for years as the area around it blossomed. However, a partnership including Hampshire Properties acquired the site in March 2019. More recently, plans and preliminary renderings were revealed for a 23-story commercial tower with office space, retail space, an underground parking garage, and waterfront public space - what we have seen so far looks nothing like this onetime rendering (see below).

Before the project could break ground, it required major zoning amendments; additionally, the Department of City Planning found that despite Con Ed's environmental remediation efforts, the project would still have an adverse effect on the surrounding environment.
