Over a year ago, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 13-story, 82-rental-unit mixed-use building planned at 282 South 5th Street, in Williamsburg, when foundation work was underway. Today, the building is structurally complete and receiving the last bits of cladding, according to Brownstoner. The base will include 31,458 square feet of commercial space, in addition to 6,887 square feet of community facility space. Midwood Investment & Development is developing, Morris Adjmi is designing, and completion is expected next year.

The building will measure 7,200 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 720 square feet. Great Neck-based Bahary Architecture is the architect of record, and an existing single-story brick structure must first be demolished.
Sam Weisner, operating as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 1475 60th Street, in southern Borough Park, two blocks from the D train’s stop at 62nd Street. Each building will contain three units and the entire development will span 7,198 square feet; that translates into an average unit size of 1,200 square feet. Yevgeniy Mekhtiyev’s Brooklyn-based IMC Architecture is the applicant of record, and demolition permits were filed earlier this month to raze an existing three-story, three-family house.
Property owner Corey Sherman, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential townhouse at 217 West 122nd Street, in Harlem, located a few blocks from a slew of subways with stops at 125th Street. The building will rise on a vacant 12-foot-wide lot and will measure 3,502 square feet. Both residential units will be duplexes and should split the building relatively evenly, taking up two floors each. Queens-based Panagiotis Vikatos is the architect of record, and another unassociated six-unit building is also planned next door.
