Permits have been filed for the conversion of a two-story commercial structure into a four-story mixed-use building at 285 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue, the lot is near the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Mendel Fleischman of The Garden Bond is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 75-foot-tall development will yield 7,604 square feet, with 6,823 square feet designated for residential space and 780 square feet for commercial space. The building will have eight residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 852 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar, penthouse, and a 40-foot-long rear yard.

Nikolai Katz Architect is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the project calls for an expansion. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
