Another new development will soon rise in the blocks that mesh Greenpoint and Williamsburg into a cohesive urban whole, with building applications filed for 146 Bayard Street. Charles Mallea will be designing the six-story project, which will have a total residential floor area of 31,646 square feet, to be divided amongst 46 units. At an average size of under 700 square feet, rentals would appear very likely. Solomon Feder of Velocity Framers is listed as the developer, and the site is currently occupied by a one-story warehouse.
Last year, YIMBY gave you the first look at the residential expansion planned for 207 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now we’ve got new renderings of the project, which is under construction at the corner of Roebling Street. The updated images show factory-style windows, glassy balconies with landscaping, and a gray brick facade. However, the boxy, protruding shape and the double-height ground floor remain the same as the original design.
Willoughby Avenue between Central and Evergreen avenues in Bushwick used to be a reminder of the city’s worst years, with an odd mix of decrepit wood frame houses, vacant lots, and garages. But several new buildings have transformed the block in the last decade, and now another project is set to join the mix.
Another day, another new development headed for central Bushwick. Yesterday’s crop of filings brought applications for a five-story apartment building at 1351 DeKalb Avenue, just north of elevated M train tracks that run along Myrtle Avenue.
