No little building in Williamsburg is safe from redevelopment. Yesterday’s filings brought a new building application for 310 Graham Avenue, where a seven-story apartment building is in the works.
Currently, the property at the corner of Graham Avenue and Ainslie Street is home to a two-story building with a bodega on the ground floor and apartments above, conveniently located just two blocks from the Graham Avenue L stop.
The new development will have 24 apartments spread across 16,350 square feet of residential space, which works out to an average unit size of 681 square feet. There will be a tiny 180-square-foot commercial space on the ground floor, and four apartments each on floors two through seven. The first floor will also include a 13-car garage (as zoning requires), a rec room and bike parking.
South Williamsburg-based Cheskie Weiss is the developer, and architect Diego B Aguilera will design the building. However, this isn’t Weiss’s only Brooklyn project. Last month, he filed plans for a six-story, 49-unit development at 41 Brooklyn Avenue in Bed Stuy.
Demolition applications have not yet been filed for the existing two-story building, which sits on a 50-foot-wide, 100-foot-deep lot. The 5,000-square-foot site last changed hands in 2005 for $2,300,000, or about $153 per buildable square foot.
