Today, YIMBY is revealing the latest rendering for 428 Wythe Avenue, in Williamsburg. The new six-story design, with over 61,000 square feet of space within, has incorporated a limestone-colored façade. Exterior turquoise will also complement an arcade running the length of the site, along Wythe Avenue.
The arches rise up to the second floor, providing shade to the eight commercial and retail spaces on the first and second floors. Floors three through six also incorporate turquoise shutters on the exteriors of their large windows, and feature ornamental railings.
The cornice atop the arcade is the final element to bridge the modernist design with its European inspiration. The rendering also situates the building with hypothetical European neighbors, making a token effort to showcase its virtue. Asher Hershkowitz Architect is responsible for the design.
The 37 apartments within will have views of the Williamsburg Bridge, and Manhattan, across the East River. Each unit will be over 1,000 square feet, indicating condominiums. The cellar will have the capacity for fourteen vehicles and ten bicycles. Floors three through five have between ten to twelve living units each, while floor six will have two residences.
Vision Development is managing the project, and completion is expected by January of 2019. Demolition permits have not been filed.
