The first commercial building is beginning to lease at the Domino Sugar development on the Williamsburg waterfront.
The 24-story building was designed by architecture firm COOKFOX and is being marketed as Ten Grand Street (10 Grand St.) with amenities that include private rooftop cabanas and a “fitness club and studio space with fully-equipped locker rooms and showers.”
Measuring 150,000 square feet, the building is part of the interlocking tower with the 45-story, 332 unit, One South First, which was completed and began leasing in September with two-bedrooms renting at over $7,000 per month.
Over 2,000 apartments will be part of Domino development with more than 700 planned as affordable.
A profile of Ten Grand Street office spaces from the New York Post describes massive windows with an architectural knod to the sugar-filled history of the site:
Ten Grand consists mostly of floors of 5,000 to 6,000 square feet with wraparound views. The facade is meant to resemble sugar crystals. Two Trees principal Jed Walentas called the building “the essence of a boutique office building with as much sex appeal as it can have.”…
Enormous windows and 13-foot-high ceilings in the relatively small spaces give a “fishbowl” effect,” Walentas said.
In other recent Domino-related news, the centerpiece of the redevelopment, 292-314 Kent Ave. is being redeveloped with a glass-dome and a barrel-vaulted ceiling inside the brick facade.
The Domino site is among the numerous residential and commercial buildings Two Trees have developed along the Brooklyn waterfront helping to build a portfolio of “more than 4 million square feet of commercial, industrial and residential real estate throughout the US,” according to the company’s website. David Walentas, the founder of Two Trees Management, recently donated $100 million to the University of Virginia.
