The concrete superstructure is taking shape for the futuristic William Vale hotel at 55 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, and it already looks as interesting as the rendering released last year.
Crain’s Business reports that Norman Brodsky is expecting to sell the burned-down warehouse located on Williamsburg’s northern waterfront, at 5 North 11th Street, to a pair of developers. Midtown Equities and East End Capital have reportedly signed a contract to purchase the site, but the exact price has yet to be revealed. The property is currently zoned for commercial and manufacturing use; 600,000 buildable square feet is available as-of-right.
On the corner of Wythe Avenue and Rutledge Street, in South Williamsburg, a long-stalled development is finally getting underway at 782 Wythe Avenue. Permits were first filed nearly a decade ago in 2006, but applications for a gut-renovation and conversion were approved this past March, and now YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which will transform an old commercial building into a synagogue for the Viznitz Congregation.
An LLC has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit mixed-use building measuring 13,510 square feet at 202 North 10th Street, in northern Williamsburg. The building will be an expansion of the existing single-story warehouse, but the property is also being subdivided, and at 210 North 10th Street, a separate four-story, two-unit mixed-use building will measure 6,755 square feet. In total, six residential units will be spread across 12,080 square feet, and three storefronts will split another 7,960 square feet. KMP Design and Engineering is designing.
AVO Construction has filed applications for a four-story, single-family townhouse measuring 2,630 square feet at 282 North 6th Street, in Williamsburg. The developer also filed applications back in November for a very similar structure on the same plot of land at 65 Havemeyer Street; additional single-family townhouses can be expected. Schneider Associates is designing, and the existing single-story warehouse spanning 276-288 North 6th Street recently passed pre-demolition inspection.
