Key Details

  • No Fee Rental
  • Built in 2018
  • 857 Apartments
  • 22 Floors

Overview

One of the city's great craggy and chunky residential complexes, this three-tower development at 420 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was erected by the Spitzer Enterprises in 2018 and contains 857 rental apartments, 80 percent of which are corner units.  A fifth of the units are "affordable." 

The development has been designed by ODA New York, which is headed by Eran Chen.  

(Other ODA projects in the city include 101 Norfolk Street, 75 Nassau Street with a tree-topped pinnacle "capped like a natural version of the Woolworth peak," and 15 Union Square West. 

It has also designed a very tall building with many garden floors at 305 East 44th Street for Triangle Assets, and "the Dragon Gate at the Canal Street Triangle" as a gateway and totem for Chinatown, and the mid-block Orbit Tower with multiple sky gardens on 42nd Street facing Bryant Park, with cable-suspended structural skin replacing traditional curtain walls.) 

Each of the three jagged, glass-clad towers at 420 Kent Avenue are a relatively modest 22 floors but because of their unusual bulkiness, which is not unattractive, and location on their own 400-foot-long riverfront promenade south of the Williamsburg Bridge, this is a very distinctive development.  

There is a considerably taller and more slender trio of towers under development in Jersey City whose "drunken" silhouette of tottering shafts takes its cute from Herzog & de Meuron's jaunty and jenjoesque obelisk at 56 Leonard Street in Lower Manhattan. 

The crags of 420 Kent Avenue, however, impart a sense of movement, if not explosion, as if the buildings cannot contain themselves, probably because of their magnificent vistas of Lower Manhattan and bridges. 

A February 3, 2017 article at cityrealty.com quoted Mr. Chen as describing these buildings as "molded icebergs, sculpted to create the maximum number of views and outdoor spaces."  Another cityrealty.com article described his firm's "staggered-and-stacked design." 

Spitzer Enterprises is headed by Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York State and was founded by his late father, Bernard, whose prominent buildings in the city included the Corinthian, 800 Fifth Avenue and 200 Central Park South.
