Brooklyn, NY According to Jeffrey Levine, chairman of Douglaston Development, 2 North 6th Place, a new mixed-use waterfront development, has topped out. The 40-story rental tower will include 554 residences, a ground floor retail space and parking for 160 cars. This 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, 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 Sts., 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. 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 on the 9th floor will include an indoor/outdoor pool & spa overlooking Manhattan, along with a fitness studio, yoga room, residents’ lounge, party space and landscaped terrace. Located in Williamsburg, residents will enjoy access to neighborhood restaurants, bars and local events, such as Smorgasburg. Additionally, residents will have easy access to Manhattan via both the L train and the North Williamsburg ferry landing which is steps from the building. Douglaston expects occupancy in February 2017; MNS will serve as the exclusive rental and marketing agency with an on-site leasing office.
