Construction progress at the Hoxton and other North Williamsburg developments
Eye on Real Estate
The Hoxton is starting to look like its renderings.
This Williamsburg hotel-in-the-making is a slim, nine-story building that stretches the length of the block on Wythe Avenue between North 9th and North 10th streets.
The side of the building that faces the avenue is charcoal-gray-colored brick. The back of the building is caramel-colored brick.
It will have 175 rooms.
London-based developer Ennismore’s hotel is being constructed on the site of a wood mill that belonged to Rosenwach Tank Co., the water-tower manufacturer.
By the way, the Hoxton is identified in city Buildings Department records as 97 Wythe Ave., but the hotel’s website uses 93 Wythe Ave. as its address.
Toby Moskovits’ 25 Kent Ave. development
The mini-park at the William Vale is a good spot for checking up on the progress of construction at 25 Kent Ave.
The William Vale is, of course, the new hotel on the corner of Wythe Avenue and North 12th Street with the buzz-worthy rooftop bar. On top of a low-rise retail building at the base of the hotel, Vale Park, which is publicly accessible greenspace, comes complete with grassy knolls.
From the vantage point of the grassy knolls, you can see the structural framework of 25 Kent Ave. taking shape. The day we snapped photos, the framework was three stories high.
The commercial development by Toby Moskovits’ Heritage Equity Partners and Rubenstein Partners is going to be a combination of office and light-manufacturing space for tech, creative and maker tenants.
An apartment building on Kent Avenue
Workers are making great strides in constructing an apartment building at 56 North 9th St.
The development site is on the corner of Kent Avenue across from Bushwick Inlet Park.
The building will be six stories tall and have 45 apartments, Buildings Department filings indicate.
Since 1998, the site has belonged to Ronit Realty LLC, with Jay Weitzman as managing member, city Finance Department filings show.
