Proposed Williamsburg Waterfront Towers Includes Plan for Public Beach
New renderings were revealed yesterday of a proposed development by Two Trees Management on the Williamsburg waterfront at a former Con-Ed site (River St. between N. 1st and N. 3rd St.).
The two mixed-use towers are designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and there are expected to be 1,000 residential units (250 affordable) between the two buildings that measure 600 feet and 650 feet.
A large public park and beach with potential swimming pool are “part of a master plan designed in collaboration with BIG and James Corner Field Operations,” according to 6sqft:
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.” ..Land use review process can take up to 2 years and construction 5 years, according to 6sqft.

The development also includes a new YMCA with 47,000-square-feet of space, in addition to “a waterfront aquatic center, 30,000 square feet of “community-oriented” retail space, and 57,000 square feet of office space,” according to 6sqft.
In terms of a timetable, the land use review process could take up to two years and construction five years.
