Construction has topped out on 302 Broadway, a six-story mixed-use residential building located next to the elevated Marcy Avenue subway platform in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The reinforced concrete structure stands 65 feet tall and is currently covered in a thick layer of scaffolding and black netting. Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm PAUL and developed by Kazi Billah, 302 Broadway spans 26,070 square feet and will include 5,790 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 5,790 square feet of medical offices on the second floor, a 12-car garage on the third floor, and 24 residential units from the fourth to sixth floors. The site is bounded by Broadway, Marcy Avenue, and South Ninth Street, and overlooks the southbound lanes of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Photos from the adjacent subway station, servicing the J, M, and Z trains, show the state of 302 Broadway. It is a little difficult to see through the netting, but work on the waterproofing and installation of the windows is underway. Much progress has occurred since YIMBY’s update last September, when foundation work was still ongoing.
The building’s envelope is composed of a white-colored core surrounded by a charcoal-hued exterior featuring an irregular pattern of vertical paneling windows. The dark-clad section is topped in spacious outdoor terraces for residents. 302 Broadway is a relatively small-scale development compared to several nearby properties around Marcy Avenue and Broadway that are transforming this inland area of Williamsburg. Nonetheless, the building will still provide views of the Williamsburg Bridge, the dome of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, and the Manhattan skyline.
302 Broadway is slated to be finished in September 2020, as noted on the construction fence.
