Brooklyn-based property owner Joseph Caputo has filed applications for a four-story, 12,731-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 19 Maspeth Avenue, located on a vacant, wedged-shape lot bound by Woodpoint Road, Maspeth Avenue, and Conselyea Street in northern Williamsburg. The 46-foot-tall project will feature retail space on the ground floor, office space on the second, and community facility space on the third and fourth floors. The retail and office spaces will total 5,437 square feet while the community facility spaces will total 4,327 square feet. Frank Petruso’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The Graham Avenue stop on the L train is two blocks away.
Brooklyn-based Southside Units has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 99 North 4th Street in North Williamsburg, three blocks from the East River. The project will measure 6,500 square feet and its residential units should average 813 square feet apiece. The structure will stand at 70 feet high but look like a seven-story building, thanks to three mezzanine levels that will contain additional residential space. Diego B. Aguilera’s Rego Park-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 24-foot-wide, 2,408-square-foot site is currently occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.
Not far from the L train sits a quiet Williamsburg corner where something has risen above all of its neighbors. It is 190 South 1st Street. The last time YIMBY checked on the project, it was just a black and white rendering. Now, it has topped out and is actually nearing completion. We recently were invited inside, and we also have the latest renderings of the project.
Affordable housing protesters chanting and marching through a public meeting last night forced the Department of City Planning to call off what would have been the first stage of a public approval process to rezone part of the Broadway Triangle in South Williamsburg, which would pave the way for an eight-building residential development.
Construction has topped out on the 16-story, 522-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Kent Avenue, located between South 3rd and 4th streets in western Williamsburg. The building’s roof stands 170 feet above street level, although the additional height from the bulkhead isn’t specified in documents. The structure measures 401,246 square feet. There will be 9,378 square feet of retail on parts of the ground and second floors. The residential units should average 712 square feet and twenty percent (105 units) will rent at below market rates through the housing lottery. The project is the first building to top out within the five-building Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development. Two Trees Management Company is the developer. SHoP Architects is the design architect and Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is anticipated next year.
