Permits have been filed for a 26-story hotel and residential tower at 159 Broadway, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Rising above the Williamsburg Bridge’s final stretch in Brooklyn, the structure would be a highly visible addition to the neighborhood. The J, M, and Z trains all ride just past the site. Their first stop in Brooklyn, Marcy Avenue, is just four blocks away. Cornell Realty will be responsible for the development, after purchasing the site for $26.2 million.
Permits have been filed for a new four-story residential building at 475 Grand Street, in the burgeoning blocks of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the L and G trains. Southside Units will be responsible for the development.
A new rendering is out for 62 and 66 North Third Street, two six-story mixed-use buildings in Brooklyn’s flourishing Williamsburg neighborhood. The nearest subway access is the L train’s first stop in Brooklyn, the Bedford Station. The site is just a block away from the river, five blocks south of the State of New York East River Park, and five blocks north of the Domino Sugar Factory development, where a ferry station may soon be built. David Dweck, Steven Ancona, and Michael Marino have joined together for the development.
The Williamsburg development boom continues apace, and today YIMBY has the details for a mixed-use project that is coming to 72 South Second Street. T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects in collaboration with INNOCAD architecture will be designing the building, which will result in a completely refurbished corner fronting directly onto Wythe Avenue, and we first reported on the DOB applications back in September of 2016.
While most of Williamsburg’s existing architecture is rather offensive, and some of its recent new developments are not much better, sprinklings of attractive design are gaining tenuous footholds across the neighborhood. One such outpost will be located at 658 Driggs Avenue, and today, YIMBY has a fresh rendering for the project, which is being designed by Morris Adjmi Architects.
