164 Kent Avenue, Waterfront Towers Design

High-rise at 164 Kent Ave. (construction)
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided the foundation design and structural design of high-rise and low-rise structures for 164 Kent Avenue, a residential development on the Brooklyn waterfront. The project consists of two primary components, an inland block and a waterfront block, and will be completed in three phases. Phase 1 involves the development of the inland block which will include a 29 story residential tower with 218,356 square feet of town homes and condominiums. The waterfront block will be developed in Phases 2 and 3 and will consist of two residential towers with town homes at their base and condominiums on the remaining floors, as well as a parking garage.
McLaren's Role: 
One of the project’s highlights was to supervise wind tunnel testing of the tower models to determine design pressures for the structural and façade designs. Following the testing, McLaren designed the tower’s building frames for both strength and serviceability. McLaren also prepared early Foundation Bid Package.
