Another apartment building is coming to Williamsburg. The new seven-story residential project at 106 North 1st will have commercial space on the ground floor. The neighborhood has seen an influx of condos in the past few years, and an office development is currently in the works directly across the street, at 107 North 1st Street.
Located in the ever-changing Brooklyn neighborhood, the corner lot at North 1st Street and Berry Street is six blocks from the Bedford subway station, serviced by the L train. It is also six blocks from the North Williamsburg landing of the East River ferry.
Demolition permits were filed in early October to remove the one-story commercial building currently on the lot. The new ground-up structure includes a basement level and a total of 38 units which will be built within concrete walls. The designer is David West of Hill West Architects, while the developer is DDG Partners.
This is the second Brooklyn residential project for DDG, whose portfolio mainly includes Manhattan-based developments.
The total square footage of the project will measure 80,932 square feet, with the residential units taking up 39,903 square feet. The structure will also include 8,742 square feet of commercial space and 49 enclosed parking spaces. It will stand 75 feet tall, with a 27-foot long backyard.
No completion date has been announced yet.
