The blocks around McCarren Park are booming with development, and now YIMBY has a construction rendering for one of those projects—at 137 Bayard Street, between Manhattan and Graham Avenues in Greenpoint.
New building applications were first filed back in 2013 for the building, which will rise six stories with 27 apartments. They’ll be divided across 18,222 square feet of residential space, for an average apartment size of only 674 square feet. Since the units are smaller than 700 square feet, these are likely rentals. There will be three apartments on the first floor, four each on floors two through five, and four apartments on the top floor.
Several apartments on the upper floors will feature balconies, which appear to be made of a copper-colored metal that matches the ground floor facade. The rest of the front will be clad in gray facade panels, and contrasting dark and light brick will cover the side walls.
The development will also have 2,100 square feet of off-street parking for 14 cars and 14 bike storage spaces in the cellar.
Queens Village-based Julien Flander will handle the design, and the developer is Solomon Feder of Velocity Framers, who are based in Borough Park. Feder paid $2,600,000 for the property in July 2013, or $128 per buildable square foot. The site was originally a single-story factory, which was demolished last fall.
