Coming to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg near the corner of North 7th Street and Wythe Avenue, 71 North 7th Street is a new project under development by Largo, with JDS as a minority partner. The building will yield 9,446 square feet of retail space and 9,045 square feet of rentable Class A office space across three floors. Sitting just one block away from the East River, the site was purchased for $10.5 million, and will feature a mix of brown-brick facade with south-facing industrial style windows, as revealed in today’s first look at renderings.
Looking at the filed permits and zoning documents, the building will be designed by Jeffrey Cole Architects PC and will top out around 50 feet, stretching nearly 75 feet across the site when complete. The total square footage amounts to nearly 21,100 square feet, stacked accordingly with a series of minor setbacks.
One floor below grade will have 10-foot ceilings, the ground floor will have 16-foot high ceilings that are mostly column-free, while office spaces will have 12-to 15-foot ceilings that are all column-free. Those will also have access to the second and third floor outdoor terraces, shared by all the tenants.
A double set of sloped roofs clad in what looks like dark metal paneling, resembling the form of a gambrel roof from the east and west, will hug in between the adjacent buildings on both sides of the property. This is where two sets of staircases will be located that go from the second floor terrace to the third floor outdoor space. The elevator shaft is found on the eastern section of the property, accounting for the project’s total height. It will be encased in the same brick facade as the main elevation seen on North 7th Street.
No completion date has been announced for the project yet.
