It’s been a century since developers have built town houses en masse near Brooklyn’s western waterfront, but with strict zoning and increasingly wealthy buyers flocking to Red Hook, one development firm is planning to erect 20 attached dwellings on King (Nos. 109 through 125) and Sullivan Streets (Nos. 74 through 85).

The permits were filed on behalf of SANBA, the developer responsible for 220 Bowery. The firm is led by Matthew Goodwin, Aldo Andreoli (cofounder of AA Studio, an architectural firm with Morris Adjmi), and Alessandro Zampedri.

The firm mentions the townhouse development on their website, but doesn’t give much information, saying only that the buildings will “[blend] into the fabric of Red Hook,” and will be “a contemporary addition to the classic Brooklyn townhouse, with all the amenities to living comfortably such as outdoor space, parking, and well crafted interior spaces.”

The permit filing gives a bit more information. The townhouses will reach three stories and 33 feet into the air, and will be spread across at least 52,000 square feet of space, with one of the houses listed as having 2,625 square feet of net residential space.

The townhouses will sit on the north and south sides of the block bounded by Sullivan Street, Richards Street, King Street, and Van Brunt Street, just to the west of the Red Hook Houses and north of P.S. 15 Patrick F. Daly, the local elementary school. The developers appear to have picked up the land for $9.7 million late last year.

Jeffrey Cole Architects, responsible for a number of new construction projects in Manhattan and the Whitman on Madison Square Park, filed for the permit.
