It’s hard to believe there are still undeveloped sites on North 7th Street in Williamsburg, but Adam America has found one. Early this morning, a permit application was filed to construct a new building at 308 North 7th Street, just off the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Northside Williamsburg.

At a piece of property bounded by North 6th, North 7th, and Meeker Avenue (the road beside the BQE), Adam America Real Estate is seeking to build a seven-story apartment building, apparently using air rights assembled from an industrial property on the block.

308 North 7th Street appears to include 38 apartments spread across 42,000 square feet of residential space, for a unit average of 1,100 square feet (although zoning lot mergers, required for air rights transfers, make building permits a bit messy, so we can’t vouch for the exact dimensions).

The building is planned to include 19 car parking spots on the ground floor (exactly the number required by code, so don’t blame the developer or architect if the ground-floor presentation is not engaging to pedestrians) plus one apartment, and then four to eight on the middle floors and three at the penthouse level. While the unit sizes could go either way, we’re guessing Adam America will be seeking to capitalize on the hot condo market and will build the apartments to be sold off individually.

The designer is listed on the permit as Daniel Bernstein’s Kutnicki Bernstein Architects, whose colorful designs can be seen across Brooklyn, including one block to the north.
