Manhattan-based TA Dumbleton Development, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, four-unit residential building at 33 Conselyea Street, in central Williamsburg, located two blocks from the Metropolitan Avenue stop on the G train. The new building would measure 4,714 square feet in total and its units should measure an average 943 square feet apiece, so they could be either condos or rentals. The project’s fourth-floor penthouse unit also features a mezzanine level and a roof deck. Timothy Dumbleton’s development firm is also the architect of record and probably designing in-house. An existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Queens-based Zios Sachtouris has filed applications for a seven-story, 27-unit residential building at 824 Metropolitan Avenue, in central Williamsburg, located three blocks east of the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The project will total 23,166 square feet and the residential units will average a rental-sized 737 square feet apiece. The cellar will have laundry, storage space for tenants, and a recreation room, and each floor from the ground through the sixth level will contain five or four apartments. The seventh floor will contain a single unit. Anthony Villano’s Brooklyn-based ACV Architecture is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide lot is currently vacant.
In May of 2015, excavation work kicked off at 325 Kent Avenue on the first building in Two Trees Management Company’s Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development, in western Williamsburg.

A 16-story, 401,246-square-foot mixed-use building is being built and will include a total of 522 residential units, 105 of which will be rented at below market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will average 712 square feet apiece. Additionally, there will be 9,378 square feet of retail space broken up into multiple spaces on the ground and second floors. SHoP Architects is the design architect and completion is expected in 2017.
Meadow Partners has filed applications to convert the former six-story, 65,000-square-foot factory at 109 South 5th Street, in western Williamsburg, into an office building. According to The Real Deal, there will be 60,700 square feet of commercial space. The interior of the structure will be gut-renovated and eventually marketed to small office tenants in the technology and media sectors. The old factory, called the Artisan and once used to manufacture garments, was picked up for $42 million last September.

In late 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned seven-story, 164-unit mixed-use building at 149 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Bedford Avenue Station on the L train. The project has now topped out and much of the curtain wall is also installed, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. The building will measure 220,996 square feet in total, 129,522 square feet of which will be residential space. That means rental units will average 790 square feet apiece. The ground floor will contain 14,588 square feet of retail space in total across three separate units. Completion is expected sometime later this year, with 20 percent of the units renting at below market-rates. Global Design Strategies is designing and L+M Development is the developer.
