Development has been picking up quickly in the Broadway Triangle, and today YIMBY has the first look at another project coming to the Williamsburg neighborhood, at 311-313 Wallabout Street.
The four-story building will have a fairly traditional look, complete with a brick and stone facade that closely resembles the attractive townhouses across the street. There will be only three apartments divided across 13,000 square feet, for impressively sized units averaging 4,333 square feet. A duplex will take up the first two floors, and the third and fourth floors will each hold one apartment.
The units, which are likely designed for Hasidic families, will include playrooms, laundry rooms and passover kitchens. The cellar will have a gym and storage space, and the development will have a large backyard.
Jeffrey Kamen is the architect, and the developer is Joel Landau. Public records show that Landau picked up the two lots at 311 and 313 Wallabout in 2013 for only $400,000, or $20 per buildable square foot.
The property is currently home to a decrepit two-story apartment building, but the DOB approved demolition permits to knock it down last month.
