David Blum, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 97 Lynch Street, in southern Williamsburg, located five blocks south of the Hewes Street stop on the J and M trains. It will measure 5,443 square feet, which means units will average a very spacious 2,722 square feet apiece. Combined with relatively high ceilings, high-end townhouse units are likely. Bahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record, and the site’s old two-story building was demolished in 2006.
