As Two Trees’ redevelopment of the Domino Sugar Factory takes shape, the surrounding Williamsburg blocks are coming to life as well. The waterfront Domino Park opened earlier this month to great excitement. At Site E, an affordable lottery at 325 Kent Avenue attracted 87,000 applications for 104 units. A block away, across from Site D on the corner of South 5th Street, the six-story building at 349 Kent Avenue has just topped out.
The two-story building previously on-site offered a splash of color in the form of a mural by R. Nicholas Kuszyk (alias RRobotsollaboration) with How & Nosm. However, the deep setbacks and balconies of a design by Brooklyn-based Workshop DA will bring an eye-catching new structure to the corner.

Upon completion, 349 Kent Avenue will have two retail storefronts on the ground floor and only two two-bedroom apartments per floor upstairs. Renderings show open layouts, hardwood floors, and sleek, modern kitchens. Oversized windows will look out on outstanding views of the Manhattan skyline, Williamsburg Bridge, and East River.

While Domino Park is a block away, the open balconies and a roof deck will offer plenty of outdoor space without leaving the building. Plans indicate that additional amenities will include a lounge, bike room, and storage.
An offering plan has not yet been filed with the attorney general, but the apartments are not likely to come cheap: CityRealty data reports that the average price of a Williamsburg two-bedroom is $1.179M. For those looking to rent, market-rate homes at 325 Kent Avenue (one block north) start at $2,562/month for studios, $3,411/month for one-bedrooms and $4,746/month for two bedrooms.
