A local developer has filed zoning amendments to construct a new low-rise condominium building in the center of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The existing lot at 276 Bedford Avenue is currently vacant and measures approximately 2,700 square feet. The proposed building would top out at three stories or about 50 feet above ground and would include 4,095 square feet of ground-floor retail and two levels of residential area above. The residential component would occupy 4,424 square feet and include two separate units and private roof space above a portion of the first floor.
Total square footage for each residence should measure around 2,212 square feet. No parking structure would be included as part of the new construction.
The zoning proposals are included within an Environmental Assessment Statement completed in collaboration by BFJ Planning. It is the opinion of the environmental consultants that the development would have no adverse impacts on the surrounding area. The rezoning is also not anticipated to spur any new construction in the immediate area.
If approved, occupancy is anticipated by the end of 2021.
