167 Lorimer Street

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. Across both buildings, the apartments should average 2,034 square feet apiece, indicative of units with family-sized configurations. De-Jan Lu’s Greenwich Village-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 6,900-square-foot assemblage is mostly vacant, except for a 20-foot-wide, single-story warehouse. Demolition permits were filed in November.

Two Six-Story, Seven-Unit Residential Buildings Filed At 301 Wallabout Street, Williamsburg

Brooklyn-based Cipco Developers has filed applications for two six-story, seven-unit residential buildings at 299-301 Wallabout Street, in the Broadway Triangle section of Williamsburg, located a block from the Lorimer Street stop on the J/M trains. Each structure will measure 10,165 square feet and individual residential should average 1,452 square feet. Larger, family-sized apartments are in the works here, likely to accommodate the neighborhood’s Hasidic Jewish population. Both structures will be topped by penthouse levels, and a total of six parkings spaces and 20 bicycle storage spaces will be located on the ground and cellar levels. Hahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record. A 60-foot-wide, single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
