Eliot Spitzer’s Spitzer Engineering filed plans today for the second of two rental buildings slated for its waterfront Williamsburg project.

Plans call for a 16-story, 165-foot-tall building at 416-418 Kent Avenue with about 200 rental units. The structure will span 151,764 square feet and include a 2,865-square-foot ground-floor retail space and 223-car parking garage.

Last month, Spitzer filed plans for an 18-story apartment building at 420-444 Kent Avenue, as previously reported. The other property on the site was expected to rise 22 stories.

Spitzer entered contract to buy the 2.8-acre Williamsburg site in August for $165 million, as TRD reported, taking over from developer Rector Hylan Corp., which was long slated to be a project with affordable housing, as The Real Deal reported in December. is handling leasing for the project, David Maundrell told The Real Deal. ODA is serving as the architect of record for both buildings.

A representative for Spitzer declined to comment.
