The couple behind Grimm Ales brews test batches of beer in their Gowanus apartment and then drives down to Virginia to create larger quantities for distribution. Now the nomadic brewers are finally making the leap to a permanent brewery at 990 Metropolitan Avenue in East Williamsburg.
Staten Island-based Javco Group Construction has filed applications for twin two-story, two-family residential buildings at 5304-5308 Amboy Road, in Huguenot, along Staten Island’s South Shore. The buildings will each measure 3,812 square feet and, across both, their full-floor residential units should average 1,178 square feet apiece. That means family-sized apartments are likely in the works. Each structure will also come with a 200-square-foot, single-car garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based JVM Architect is the architect of record. The 75-foot-wide, 9,375-square-foot property was occupied by a two-story house until that structure was demolished over the summer.
