Exploring Some of NYC’s Newest Developments

A number of new developments have either recently opened in and around the city or will be hitting the market soon. Here is a look at a few of the newer options that you might want to consider when looking for a place to live in New York City.

The Eugene

Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with interiors done by Roman & Williams, The Eugene is a 62-story rental in Brookfield’s Manhattan West development that will feature a high-end La Palestra gym, a 4,000-square-foot roof deck on the top floor and a ground-level terrace connecting it to Two Manhattan West. The Eugene is located at 435 W 31st Street.

325 Kent Avenue

Following the approval of the Domino Sugar Refinery redevelopment, the Williamsburg megaproject development began. The first building to be developed is the waterfront development of 325 Kent Avenue. Offering 104 affordable units, for which 87,000 people applied, the development will also offer market-rate units developed by Two Trees.

The Hub

Located in Downtown Brooklyn, the 56-story tower known as the Hub will be the tallest building in the borough upon completion. Developed by Douglas Steiner, the development will be 610 feet tall with 750 apartments and 32,000 square feet of retail space. 150 of the units within the development, which is located at 333 Schermerhorn Street, will be affordable.
