Nine-Unit Residential Project Planned at 167 Lorimer Street, Williamsburg

An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for two buildings with a total of nine residential units at 167 and 169 Lorimer Street, in the Broadway Triangle section of Williamsburg. A four-story, three-unit building measuring 10,989 square feet is slated for 167 Lorimer Street, while a six-story, six-unit building measuring 13,824 square feet is planned at 169 Lorimer Street.

Demolition permits were filed in November.
