Earlier this month, YIMBY reported that building permits were filed for 53 Grand Street, a five-story residential building in Williamsburg. And today, we have a rendering.
Investmates, the Williamsburg-based development outfit behind the project, has plans to erect a 7,800-square foot condo structure on the site, located between Williamsburg’s higher-rent Northside and its grittier-but-prettier Southside. The building will be a boutique product, with just three duplex residences, featuring private garden space for the lower-level unit, roof space for the penthouse buyer, and luxury amenities like herringbone floors and fireplaces throughout.
The Meshberg Group, based in Vinegar Hill, will be responsible for design. ND Architecture & Design, a Red Hook-based firm led by Nataliya Donskoy — which has been taking on higher-end projects lately — is the architect of record.
The builders are maxing out the lot’s allowed square footage, which is unfortunately low; the pre-war tenement directly to the east exceeds the allowed density by about 50 percent, and appears to surpass the 50-foot height limit by a few feet as well.
The developers plan to break ground on 53 Grand Street at the beginning of 2015.
