Excavation has kicked off on two neighboring residential structures at 312-314 Keap Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and today YIMBY has an exclusive first look at renderings for the projects. The new buildings will each top-out at four stories, and will together comprise approximately 12,000 gross square feet.
Just a few blocks south of 25 Kent Avenue, located in the same Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, 187 Kent Avenue is a new seven-story mixed-use residential project rising between Metropolitan Avenue and North 3rd Street. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record, and the site is being developed by CW Realty Management, who purchased it for $43 million, or $512 per square foot. The building is already a couple floors off the ground and will eventually stand around 85 feet tall, and contain a total of 140,036 square feet of space.
Located in South Williamsburg, which like most of Brooklyn has been undergoing rapid and major changes over the past decade, a small building at the intersection of Broadway, South Sixth Street and Bedford Avenue, has some new renderings. Cayuga Capital Management LLC is the developer, and has revealed fresh new images of the project. They previously purchased the sharp, triangular vacant lot back in 2016.
A single story warehouse is about to be torn down to make way for a six-story mixed-use structure in the southernmost corner of Williamsburg, at 334 Flushing Avenue.
Multi-block redevelopments are becoming commonplace in the formerly industrial areas that border the burgeoning residential blocks of northwest Brooklyn, and now another major site has been added to the list. Yesterday, City Planning approved the Pfizer redevelopment in South Williamsburg, which will see the derelict 4.2-acre site completely revitalized.
