Renderings are up for 223 North 8th Street, a new 95-unit development in Williamsburg. The architect of record is IBI Group Gruzen Samton, and the developer is Westbrook Partners. The images are from Alexander Briseno’s Behance portfolio, which has a trove of information on additional projects, as well.
Buzz Buzz Home first reported on 223 North 8th Street back in August, when a plan exam for the project was filed; now that renderings are up, it appears that designs have been finalized, though initial construction permits were disapproved back in November.
223 North 8th Street will total 72,000 square feet, translating into an average unit size of approximately 750 square feet. That likely indicates an abundance of studio and one-bedroom apartments, which is ideal for the young professionals who are increasingly dominating Williamsburg’s demographic profile.
IBI Group’s design for the seven-story structure appears fairly standard, though the balconies detract from the building’s aesthetics; the cladding appears to be brick.
While no completion date has been announced for the project, the push for approval via the Department of Buildings likely indicates that construction is imminent.
