Four-Story Townhouses At 59 South 4th Street Close To Topping Out, Williamsburg

Back in May, foundation work was underway at 51-59 South 4th Street, on the corner of Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, where six four-story townhouses are planned. Now the concrete structure is three stories tall, according to Brownstoner. The townhouses are being developed by KUB Capital, and five are currently in contract. KUB Design and SZ Projects are co-designing, and completion is expected by the end of this year.

Work appears to be stalled at 444 Graham Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, where Domenico Marino plans to build a seven-story, 56-unit mixed-use building measuring 41,710 square feet. Retail space is expected to span 4,700 square feet on the ground floor, and Queens-based Salvatore Italiano is the architect of record. According to Brownstoner, excavation work has failed to resume since the DOB issued a stop work order earlier this spring. Completion was originally expected by the end of this year.

The building will measure 3,800 square feet in total, with duplex units averaging 1,265 square feet. Private roof space is also planned, and Hustvedt Culter Architects is the applicant of record. Permits were filed in May to demolish the existing three-story, three-unit townhouse, which traded hands for $1,100,000 in October 2014.

Earlier this week, YIMBY revealed the planned nine-story, 175-key Hoxton Hotel at 97 Wythe Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, and now the project’s designer, Perkins Eastman, sent along updated renderings showing slight tweaks in the façade. The 59,910 square-foot building will include some form of restaurant operations on the terraced second floor and the roof. Sydell Group is developing, and the site’s former single-story structure was demolished in late 2014.

Urban View Realty has filed applications for a five-story, six-unit residential building at 320 Humboldt Street, in eastern Williamsburg, three blocks from the the L train stop at Graham Avenue. The building will measure 5,000 square feet, which means units will average 835 square feet. Woody Chen’s InFocus is the applicant of record, and an existing three-story, two-unit wood-framed structure must first be demolished.

According to Crain’s Business, the grocery store will take space on the ground and basement levels. New building applications have not yet been filed, but the lot is currently vacant; the site’s former two-story warehouse was demolished in 2013.
