Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 61 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between Kent Avenue and Wythe Avenue, the interior lot is within walking distance of the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Gabriel Grunblatt under the 61 Metropolitan LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 74-foot-tall development will yield 24,257 square feet, with 16,910 square feet designated for residential space and 245 square feet for community facility space. The building will have 24 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 704 square feet. The masonry-based structure will also have a cellar and a 32-foot-long rear yard.
Francisco Nunez of Studio Gallos is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits were filed in May 2019 for a three-story residential building. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

What will happen will be, as the developers have planned: Hello New York YIMBY.
I really wish these few original old historical buildings would be preserved as such instead of being knocked down to build anthetGlass tower. Enough of our city has been demolished and build the new and that’s okay to a degree I guess but we still have to preserve the historical commercial and residential buildings that we have left.
