Work has begun at 143 Meserole Street, in East Williamsburg, and YIMBY has come across a few renderings of the future six-story condo building. It will house ten units with a single parking space on the ground floor, with 7,480 square feet of net floor space and a total construction area of 11,344 square feet.
The building will add a splash of color to an otherwise brick-and-vinyl Meserole Street, which is slowly seeing its empty lots filled in. Blue will be the dominant color, with blue cladding in between the floor-to-ceiling windows and blue glass on the front balconies. A partial blue and white starburst will peak out from the structure’s eastern side, with the house number inscribed vertically in large numerals.
Sunset Park-based New Empire Real Estate is the developer. The design appears to be done in-house, with the architect – Building Consulting Engineering – based right next door. The duo is also responsible for 233 34th Street, an attractive and more restrained 18-unit condo project in Greenwood Heights.
Construction on 143 Meserole Street should wrap up in about 12 months, according to the developer.
