Despite concerns regarding the MTA’s planned closing of the L train in 2018, Douglaston Development’s The Edge III forges ahead with construction on their project along the Williamsburg waterfront. Situated at 2 North 6th Street, the tower marks Douglaston’s third tower on the East River, following The Edge North Tower at 34 North 7th Street and The Edge South Tower at 22 North 6th Street. The Edge III topped out in March at 40 stories high and a height of 398 feet. Expected to be complete in 2017, the tower will ultimately host 554 no fee residential units and 678 square feet of retail at its base.

Designed by The Stephen B. Jacobs Group, The Edge III will feature an all-glass façade, which construction photos show is nearly finished. Renderings reveal many balconies that will allow residents to maximize their gorgeous waterfront location with views of the river and beyond.
Units at The Edge III will average 925 square feet apiece, and the first and second floors will have several duplex units. The ninth floor will host a variety of amenities including a landscaped outdoor terrace, a pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, and a lounge/party room. The building will include a 160-car parking garage with flood-proofed underground levels. Residents will also have access to a 510-car surface parking lot shared among the other Edge towers. Other planned amenities include bicycle storage, a children’s playroom, a business center, and private storage.
The tower topped out in March at 40 stories tall, 398 feet high.
Living on a gorgeous Williamsburg waterfront property isn't the only thing residents at The Edge III will look forward to. Adjacent to the East River State Park is Smorgasburg, Brooklyn's renowned outdoor foodie market. The Bedford Avenue subway station is 6 blocks away, which for the time being offers one stop access to Manhattan on the L train. Also adjacent to the property is the East River Ferry terminal, offering access to Midtown and Lower Manhattan. With all of Williamsburg’s lively art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and nightlife venues in sight, life at The Edge III will certainly be rich and exciting.
The tower joins Douglaston Development's other two Edge towers, all designed by the Stephen B. Jacobs Group.
