Back in July of 2015, six four-story, single-family townhouses – located at 51-59 South 4th Street, in Williamsburg, two blocks in from the East River – were two stories above street level and rising. Now, the project, dubbed the Townhouses of Wythe Lane, have topped out and are nearing completion, Brownstoner reports. Four of the townhouses will measure 3,714 square feet each, one will measure 4,088 square feet, and the last will encompass 4,471 square feet. Each residence will feature private underground parking and over 1,000 square feet of private outdoor rooftop space. KUB Capital is both developing and designing in-house, with SZ Projects aiding in the design process. Occupancy can likely be expected within the next few months.

The 26,688-square-foot structure has now topped out, according to the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The ground floor will feature 2,143 square feet of retail space – to be sold as a single retail condo – and a 512-square-foot doctors office. The residential units, which begin on the second floor, should average 777 square feet apiece. Jamaica-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record. Completion can be expected closer to 2017.

Now, property owner George Elliott has filed applications for the project, which will rise five stories and contain 23 residential units (down from 26).
