Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 396 South 5th Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is a block away from the Hewes Street Subway Station, occasionally serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Four blocks away is the Broadway Subway Station, serviced by the G train, which is one quick stop from the Metropolitan Avenue Subway Station, where one can transfer to the L train. BQBP Inc will be responsible for the development.
The 44-foot tall structure will yield 7,490 square feet of total construction area. Eight apartments will be created, averaging 673 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Two units will occupy each floor, and a laundry room will occupy the cellar, as well as accessory storage space for first-floor tenants.
Diego Aguilera Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed for the site in March, and it is currently empty. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
