Eliot Spitzer’s New Williamsburg Development Is A Futuristic Nightmare Ripped From Blade Runner

Eliot Spitzer's New Williamsburg Development  Courtesy ODA Architects


One of the least realistic things in the movie Blade Runner is that people are permitted to smoke in office buildings in Los Angeles in the year 2019. One of the most realistic things, aside from the fact that we’re all going to be murdered by androids, is that architecture is hideous in the future. Such will be the legacy bestowed upon us by former Governor Eliot Spitzer, whose inaugural development along the Williamsburg waterfront promises to look something like an upside-down ice cube tray.

The Love Gov took charge of his family’s real estate business last year, heralding the arrival of a $700 million luxury residential development at 416-430 Kent Avenue. The development will feature three 22-story towers boasting a total of 857 rental apartments, along with a park and esplanade. There will also be rooftop pools, terraces, recreation rooms, and all sorts of other things a person totally needs in New York City.
