After a decade of new towers sprouting along the North Williamsburg waterfront, new residential construction in the area has begun to slow down over the past year, as the neighborhood just doesn’t have many development sites left. However, one builder managed to snag a lot at 106 North 3rd Street, between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street.
Foundation work appears to be complete where a 22-story, 252-unit mixed-use building is under development at 416 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg near the East River. The site can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The tower will be connected by a common base with two other 22-story residential towers, located next door at 420 Kent Avenue. That site was cleared of commercial low-rises earlier this year.
Brooklyn-based property owner Abraham Schiff, doing business as USA Home Financial, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 382 Keap Street, located at the corner of South 2nd Street in the heart of Williamsburg. The building will measure 5,367 square feet, with 911 square feet of commercial-retail space across the ground and cellar levels, in addition to a 479-square-foot community facility also on the ground floor. The residential units above, spread across three floors and a penthouse level, should average 1,827 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.
An anonymous Hudson Square-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 224 North 6th Street, in North Williamsburg. The project will measure 4,980 square feet, which means its residential units should average 1,660 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be two duplexes and one triplex apartment. Two of the units will also have access to space in an upper penthouse level. Hudson Square-based Jorge Mastropierto Architects Atelier is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot site is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Brooklyn-based RedSky Capital has filed applications for a two-story, 7,986-square-foot retail building at 204 Bedford Avenue, in North Williamsburg. The project will contain 3,675 square feet of commercial-retail space along the cellar, ground, and second floors. The 32-foot-tall structure will be topped by a roof terrace. Jessica Wetter’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot site is currently occupied by a three-story mixed-use building; demolition permits were filed in August. The Bedford Avenue stop on the L train is two blocks away.
