Jeffrey Levine, chairman of Douglaston Development announced the topping out of 2 North 6th Place, Brooklyn’s newest mixed-use waterfront development.
The 40-story rental tower will include 554 residences, a ground floor retail space and parking for 160 cars.
The project completes the last phase of Douglaston’s residential community along the Williamsburg waterfront.
In total, The Edge, 1 North 4th and now, 2 North 6th Place contain over 2,000 apartments, nearly 500 of which will remain affordable in perpetuity.
“We are incredibly excited to add 2 North 6th Place to our outstanding collection of residences that have transformed the Brooklyn skyline and added so much vibrancy to the community,” said Levine.
“We’re very proud to have been a part of how people live and work in Williamsburg.”
The building, which abuts the East River between North 6th and 7th Streets, is the final piece of Douglaston’s master-planned, waterfront community.
This phase of the project also entails a terraced park with tree-lined walkways and three public piers so everyone can take advantage of the spectacular city vistas.
In total, Douglaston has created over two acres of city parkland, including the busiest node of the East River Water Ferry Service, from a previously derelict manufacturing site.
2 North 6th Place features architecture and interiors by the Stephen B. Jacobs Group and Andi Pepper Interior Design; Levine Builders is serving as general contractor. Amenities will include an indoor/outdoor pool & spa overlooking Manhattan.
Douglaston expects occupancy in February 2017; MNS will serve as the exclusive leasing agent.
