Developer Acquires Commercial Property Within Proposed Williamsburg Enhanced Business District

Simon Baron Development has acquired the two-story commercial property at 12 Franklin Street, in southern Greenpoint, for $24 million, according to The Real Deal. Located six blocks from the Nassau Avenue stop on the G train, the property is within the proposed Enhanced Business District, which would allow developers to trade light manufacturing space for extra office space in the North Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone. Before proposing to build anything, Baron is waiting to see how well the proposed rezoning works. Under current zoning, the property could accommodate a new 55,500 square-foot commercial building, or if community facility space is included, a 133,320 square-foot building.
