Last year, YIMBY gave you the first look at the residential expansion planned for 207 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now we’ve got new renderings of the project, which is under construction at the corner of Roebling Street.
The updated images show factory-style windows, glassy balconies with landscaping, and a gray brick facade. However, the boxy, protruding shape and the double-height ground floor remain the same as the original design.
Developer Loketch Group plans to expand a squat, two-story building into a five-story structure with six additional apartments. The expanded building will have 10 units divided across 13,751 square feet of residential space. The apartments will be four-bedroom, two-bath duplexes with outdoor space and washer-dryers. They’ll be luxury rentals, with an average size of 1,375 square feet.
Four businesses had to move out of their ground floor storefronts before the project could proceed. The loss of small tenants is often upsetting in pricey neighborhoods like Williamsburg, but the new building will replace that lost commercial space with 8,700 square feet of ground floor retail.
J Frankl Associates designed the project, and Charles Mallea is the architect of record.
Moishe Loketch, who runs Loketch Group with his father Pinny, says that work has just started on the concrete superstructure for the new floors. Work is tentatively expected to finish in the spring.
