A rendering has surfaced of the planned six-story, 10-unit residential project at 83 Humboldt Street, in southern Williamsburg. The rendering is courtesy of Brooklyn-based Beam Group, the project’s design architect. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 7,586 square feet. Its residential units should average 758 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include a 301-square-foot recreation space on the ground floor and a rooftop terrace. Yoel Berkovitz, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, is the developer. Joseph A. Mucciolo’s Wantagh, N.Y.-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 26-foot-wide, 2,558-square-foot property’s single-story predecessor was demolished in late 2014. The site is five blocks from the Flushing Avenue stop on the J and M trains.
Two anonymous entities have acquired, for $33 million, the vacant 22,640-square-foot development site at 206 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, Commercial Observer reported. That’s the property bound by Kent and Metropolitan avenues and River and North 3rd streets, located a block in from the East River. The previous owner, Alliance Private Capital Group, was planning a 45,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building with retail space on the ground floor and office space above. In fact, the grocery store Trader Joe’s signed a lease last year for 18,000 square feet of space across the ground and cellar levels. It hasn’t been confirmed if the new owners plan to follow through with the same project. New building applications haven’t been filed.
Flushing-based property owner David Cohen has filed applications for a four-story, multi-unit residential building at 145 Conselyea Street, in northern Williamsburg. It will measure 6,981 square feet and its residential units should average between 623 square feet and 712 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. The range is due to contradictory filings, where one lists eight units and the other lists seven. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Graham Avenue stop on the L train is located two blocks away.

Additionally, two more Brooklyn structures are now on the path to designation.
