A single-story brick building that was once a church has been demolished at 142 Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg, and this four-story development with dark brick will rise in its place. YIMBY noticed the rendering on the fence at the empty lot, which sits mid-block on Manhattan between Meserole Street and Montrose Avenue.
Last summer, permits were filed for a four-story, 10-unit building at 434 Manhattan Avenue between Bayard Street and the BQE, in the borderlands between Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Now YIMBY has a look at the schematic for the development, which was posted on the fence.
The low-rise brick structures housing the Brooklyn Bowl and Brooklyn Brewery — spanning 61-71 Wythe Avenue, in northern Williamsburg — are on the market, reports Crain’s Business. Although leases don’t expire for a couple more years, if community space is included, up to 170,000 square-feet of mixed-use commercial and community-use development rights could be utilized. The assemblage is being valued at over $50 million.
