Permits have been filed for a new building at 505 Union Avenue, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. Davbel Property LLC will be responsible for the development.
Construction had already been underway at the site for an earlier permit, which required partial fusion with the site’s former occupant structure. The most recent permit could indicate full demolition will be imminent for both.
The 55-foot tall structure will yield 41,500 square feet, with 20,390 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 9,290 square feet for commercial-retail use. 23 apartments will sit above the commercial space, averaging 886 square feet apiece, indicating rentals.
Tenants will have access to a lobby, storage space, balconies on floors three through five, and recreational space on the third floor. 60 parking spaces will be included on the second floor, for residential and commercial use. Capacity for storing 13 bicycles will be included.
Versatile Engineering PC is listed as the architect of record. The rendering’s design is by Studio Gallos.
Demolition permits have not been filed yet, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
