325 Kent Avenue – A New Address of Luxury and Affordability  

325 Kent Avenue has become the talk of the town for its beautiful structure in Brooklyn in New York City. The SHoP Architects, the New York firm, turned this old Domino sugar refinery into stunning 16 story residential blocks between former factory refinery building and Williamsburg Bridge. Constructed by Brooklyn-based company, Two Trees, this building is the premier address located at an idyllic location with unmatched amenities and a jaw-dropping view of New York City.  

Let’s talk about some history of Domino Refinery.

Don’t confuse this with Domino’s Pizza as they are quite different from each other. Domino Sugar Refinery was built in 1856 and was once the largest sugar refinery in the world produced the Domino brand sugar. By 1870, it became the station where more than half of the sugar consumed in the whole country was refined here.

It was renamed Domino’s Sugar in the 1900s from the former name American Sugar Refinery Company. The refinery stopped functioning in 2004 and was purchased by the Community Preservation Corporation to develop high-rise buildings. 

The Two Tree Management company later purchased it in 2012. It’s first residential building, 325 Kent Avenue, opened in 2017. The plan is to convert factory space of 380,000-square-foot office space, another 220,000 square feet of office buildings, six acres of parks, and several residential towers.

From the view of Manhattan and the East River, it looks like a rectangular donut-shaped building which is a treat to the eyes. The building has a copper-clad base, that helps to raise the 4 stories of the building and has got zinc-clad on the top of the building. Here you will get a studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom units, and one bedroom with a home office.

This is not a typical building in the New York style. It includes a dramatic feature like a large rectangular hole in its river-facing facade for the four stories, and for the above stories, it has large windows, and the top of the building offers beautiful setbacks. The base of the building is open for retail business, and inside wings of the two long wings have randomly spaced balconies. “Featuring a striking silhouette that steps up incrementally in height, it gradually forms a visual connection between the existing low-rise neighborhood, the landmarked Refinery building, and the taller waterfront buildings slated for future construction,” said Two Trees Management.
