Smile NEW YORK | River Street Waterfront Dev | 650 Ft & 600 FT | FLOORS

Massive Bjarke Ingels-designed apartment towers and public beach planned for Williamsburg


DECEMBER 12, 2019

Two new mixed-use towers with 1,000 units of housing and six acres of public space have been proposed for the North Brooklyn waterfront. Two Trees Management on Thursday unveiled plans to bring two Bjarke Ingels Group-designed buildings, one at 650 feet and the other at 600 feet, on River Street between North 1st and North 3rd Street in Williamsburg.

The buildings, with Metropolitan Avenue running between them, will serve as an entrance to the new waterfront space, part of a master plan designed in collaboration with BIG and James Corner Field Operations. The park and public beach would close the gap between Grand Ferry Park and North Fifth Park, eventually providing continuous access to the East River between South Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

Two Trees, which created the neighboring Domino Park as part of its redevelopment of the former Domino Sugar Factory, recently bought the three vacant sites for a total of $150 million. The site had been home to Con Edison since 1984, with its steel fuel tanks removed in 2011.
Quote:
The River Street Waterfront Master Plan must go through the city’s uniform land use review procedure (ULURP), as well as secure a permit from the Department of Environment Conservation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Jed Walentas, the principal of Two Trees, told reporters Thursday that the land use review process could take at an estimated two years to complete, with the construction of the entire project taking at least five years. The park would be completed alongside the first building, according to Walentas.

The housing part of the plan includes 1,000 units across two buildings. According to Two Trees, 250 units will be designated affordable under the city’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program. During a media presentation on Thursday, Bjarke Ingels described the towers, which renderings show having a triangular podium, as framing Metropolitan Avenue and funneling into the waterfront.

“Once you arrive, the footprint opens up,” Ingels said. “So as soon as you get to Metropolitan, you have this uninterrupted view of the River and Manhattan.”

The project also includes a 47,000-square-foot YMCA with a waterfront aquatic center, 30,000 square feet of “community-oriented” retail space, and 57,000 square feet of office space.
Quote:
The park will include a cove and public beach (with swimming potentially possible), tidal pools, a salt marsh, a fishing pier, boating cove, and nature education programs offered on the outposts of the park. A section of community kiosks will face the waterfront, most likely offering things like kayak rentals, art installations, and other water-related activities. Ingels said the new park “is much more immersed into the water” than anything currently in New York.

Looks pretty good. There's some bold architecture going up on the Brooklyn/Queens side of the East River.

The existing park is fantastic, so I trust that the park extension will be extremely high quality.

Don’t forget this stunning, recently-announced project in Greenpoint.

BIG.DK strikes again! Love it! Every skyline they design a tower for always gets an quirky and angular project... Just wish they'd show Edmonton some love after Telus Sky was built!

Looks good.
What are the chances this gets build with the height advertised?

Probably good, because the previous project to the south got built with the height advertised.

Usually the NIMBYs stop screaming if you give them enough free stuff, and often "new reveals" already follow deep negotiations with local politicos.

Thanks, is there a thread for it, or is it part of the current Domino towers thread? I really hope that one gets built too, the riverfront will look so epic.

The bases of these towers tie in nicely to the park. When this and the Domino Sugar development are completed this will be such a great place to walk.

The river front from Williamsburg to LIC, and extending to Astoria is developing a nice wall of towers, a river skyline. Should be a nice wall of high rises eventually from DoBro to Astoria/LIC down the line at the rate things are going. Parcels being swooped up, and developed. The magnitude could be quite prominant, on the level of Jersey City for example from a riverfront skyline POV.

On a side note, the past few years has seen a big, and I mean big distribution of developments in the outer boroughs. Its good to see the overall construction shift (tower wise) greatly shift to the outer boroughs. Like if you go to the Bronx for example, you will see cranes dotting the borough. Its a nice sight to have, and much more to come!
