Monday was a slow day at the Department of Buildings, and the most impressive filings came for twin apartment structures at 43 and 45 Maujer Street (which, YIMBY today learned, is pronounce ‘moy-jurr), in East Williamsburg.
The buildings each clock in at 6,807 square feet of construction area, of which 4,953 square feet will be usable residential floorspace. Each building will be four stories tall and contain seven rental apartments, the developer told YIMBY (though the building permits indicate seven in one and four in the other).
Neither building will have parking, as their unit counts fall below the threshold at which off-street spaces are required (more than 10 units for R6B zones). In fact, breaking the 50-foot-wide parcel up into two 25-foot lots was likely dictated by parking requirements – an inefficient arrangement which will drive up construction costs ever so slightly by requiring duplicates of various building systems.
Kubersky Management, which listed its office address right next door on Maujer Street, is the developer. Philip Toscano – whose Williamsburg portfolio ranges from modern glass and dark brick to more traditional light brick with masonry accents – is the architect.
The developer told YIMBY that the projects should break ground in about two months.
