In January, Brownstoner reported that the new two-story Whole Foods building had topped out at 242 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, and now Gothamist has the latest with photos of façade installation. The 50,000 square-foot building appears to have received a redesign, which notably includes a cleaner and more modern glass envelope. Aurora Capital Associates and Midtown Equities is developing, and completion is opening is expected in Spring of 2016.
In April, Thor Equities acquired the development site spanning 176-180 Bedford Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, for $36.1 million, and now renderings posted on-site show a possible two-story commercial-retail building. Per Brownstoner, plans have yet to be filed for the project, but the property could accommodate a structure as large as 14,400 square feet. The site’s three-story predecessor has been removed.
Brownstoner reports the Dime Savings Bank building in central Williamsburg, which is only a portion of a 50,000 square-foot assemblage, is now on the market as a development site. The other properties included are 257-275 South 5th Street, 146-150 Marcy Avenue, 209 Havemeyer Street, and 262 South 4th Street, and a 230,500 square-foot mixed-use development could be accommodated. Dime Savings Bank is seeking to keep their retail location in the existing two-story building at 209 Havemeyer Street.
A little empty lot at 88 South 6th Street, next to the Williamsburg Bridge, is about to sprout this four-story gray brick building.
