Brooklyn’s Newest Addition: 325 Kent Avenue

Brooklyn will be gaining a new rental tower in Williamsburg developed by Two Trees Management with a unique shape designed by SHop Architects.

The site at 325 Kent Avenue was previously home to the former Domino Sugar Refinery site and was purchased by Two Trees almost five years ago. Construction is now finally underway for this new development and will also be the start to the industrial sites megaproject.

Although the site is still under construction, renderings of the project have been revealed and leasing has begun. The building holds 522 units total, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments starting at $3,100 a month. 104 of the units have been set aside for affordable housing with thousands of applicants already.

The shape of the building allows for each unit to receive the maximum amount of air and light. Every home comes with a kitchen equipped with stainless steel Blomberg and Bosch appliances, as well as wooden cabinetry, an island kitchen, and a beautiful backsplash.

The building’s doughnut-like structure has a three-story sky-bridge-like structure that holds 11,300 square feet of the building’s amenities, including a fitness center, resident lounge, large rooftop deck, and on the fourth floor there is a landscaped courtyard.
