A construction worker was killed Friday morning when he fell from the sixth floor of a building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, police said.

The 59-year-old man was working on scaffolding at 325 Kent Ave. around 8 a.m. when he fell two stories from the sixth to the fourth floor, an NYPD spokesman said. He was taken to Woodhull Medical Center where he later died, police said. The city medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

Building developer Two Trees Management identified the victim as Wilfredo Enriques, of Brooklyn. The company said he was installing a facade on the building when he fell.

“We are overwhelmed with grief by this tragic accident and extend our deepest condolences to his family, loved ones and colleagues,” Two Trees Management said in a statement. “All work has stopped on the site and we are working closely with the city to determine the cause of the accident.”

Enriques worked for PG Products of New York, a subcontractor in charge of the facade and window installation at the site.

"We are devastated by the loss of Wilfredo Enriques, a dedicated employee and friend for the past decade. Our prayers are with Wilfredo's family at this very difficult time," John Gibney, CEO of PG Products of New York, said in a statement. "We are fully cooperating with Two Trees and the DOB to understand how this tragedy occurred."

The building is located on the site of the old Domino Sugar Factory and is part of a massive redevelopment of the 11-acre property, which will create 2,000 apartments, office space and a green space. Last week, the city announced an affordable housing lottery for 104 apartments at the same address.

A spokesman said the Department of Buildings is on the scene and an investigation into the deadly fall is ongoing.
