Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you an update on the William Vale Hotel in north Williamsburg, and now we’ve got a look at the creatively named Williamsburg Hotel rising nearby at 96 Wythe Avenue.
The industrial no man’s land along Johnson Avenue in Bushwick is about to become very hip, between both a huge retail redevelopment planned near the Morgan L stop, and now, a nightclub conversion with a rooftop bar, planned for a warehouse at 599 Johnson Avenue, near the Ridgewood border.
Property owner Ashourzadeh Manny, doing business under 501 EMR LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 14-unit mixed-use building at 503-505 Grand Street, in central Williamsburg. Measuring a total 11,720 square feet, commercial space will take up 2,630 square feet, and the remainder will be residential. BMG Design Build is designing, and a three-story townhouse must first be demolished.
An LLC has filed applications for two four-story, two-unit mixed-use buildings spanning the lots 20-26 Marcy Avenue, in central Williamsburg. The four residential units will be dividing nearly 6,800 square feet of residential space, and a combined 3,940 square feet of commercial space will span the development. KMP Design and Engineering is designing, and a single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
As federal recovery money has slowly flowed into the Rockaways, YIMBY has noticed plenty of new building permits for one- and two-family homes, but very few for multi-family developments. However, it seems like the tide may be starting to turn for the flood-damaged peninsula in eastern Queens: plans have just been filed for a four-story apartment building at 11-30 McBride Street in Far Rockaway.
