Ezra Unger has filed applications for a seven-story, 19-unit mixed-use building at 415 Marcy Avenue, in southern Williamsburg, three blocks north of the G train’s stop at Flushing Avenue. The building will measure 18,583 square feet in total. That includes 2,025 square feet of retail on the ground floor. Residential units above will average 871 square feet apiece. Diego Aguilera Architects, based in Rego Park, is the architect of record, and an existing single-story brick building must first be demolished.
Permits have been filed for a new eight-unit, five-story mixed-use building at 170 Marcy Avenue in Williamsburg, between Broadway and South 5th Street. It would be 47-feet-tall, and units will spread across 4,314 square feet, averaging a small 539 square feet apiece. There would be two apartments each on the second through fifth floors, and both the second floor and roof would have assembly areas for 75 people each. The first floor would have two retail spaces spanning 1,495 square feet.
Architect Morris Adjmi first filed applications for six stories of condos at 138 North 10th Street in Williamsburg nearly a year ago, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the development between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue.
Near the end of 2013, Brownstoner reported on applications for Douglaston Development’s 40-story, 554-unit residential tower at 2 North 6th Place, on Williamsburg’s northern stretch of East River waterfront, and now photos by Tectonic show the building under construction. It appears to be 11 stories above street level. Based on a rendering from J&A Concrete, the base is close to being structurally complete. A small 678 square-foot retail unit is planned on the ground floor and units will average 925 square feet apiece. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing and completion is expected in 2017.
David Blum, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 97 Lynch Street, in southern Williamsburg, located five blocks south of the Hewes Street stop on the J and M trains. It will measure 5,443 square feet, which means units will average a very spacious 2,722 square feet apiece. Combined with relatively high ceilings, high-end townhouse units are likely. Bahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record, and the site’s old two-story building was demolished in 2006.
A vacant lot at 219 South Third Street in Williamsburg has hit the market, and YIMBY has renderings of the building that could grow there.
