Renderings are out for 649 Grand Street, a six-story mixed-use building coming to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the Lorimer Street Subway Station, serviced by the L trains. It will be on a busy street in the neighborhood, with several bars and restaurants nearby. Two Kings Company is responsible for development.

The rendering reveals a two-tone brick pattern and black metal on the façade, with five terraces facing the street. The ground-floor retail space will have floor-to-ceiling windows and signage identical in style to the building’s existing storefronts.

The 65-foot tall structure will yield 8,580 square feet of space, with 8,080 square feet dedicated to the residential use and 500 square feet for commercial-retail use. 10 apartment units will be created, averaging 808 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. The extant structure was a three-story townhouse with retail and two apartments averaging 1,000 square feet apiece, making this new development a significantly better utilization of space for the neighborhood.

    Please pardon me for using your space: Thanks for your all detail or report or rendering or image, or Google Maps.

  2. it’s a better use of land but a shame that this building has historic character, while so many others on grand street, like it’s neighbor 2 doors down, are much more suitable for the wrecking ball.
