Bogue Trondowski Architect has revealed new renderings of an upcoming development at 661 Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Developed by Investmates, the six-story, 15,910-square-foot building will bring a mix of residential and retail area to one of the busiest streets in the neighborhood.
661 Driggs Avenue
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 661 Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between Metropolitan Avenue and Fillmore Place, the interior lot is a short walk to the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Idan Shitrit of Investmates is listed as the owner behind the applications.
It’s been a year since Puccio Marble and Onyx sold their last Williamsburg building at 661 Driggs Avenue for $5.6 million. Now, the new owners have filed plans to replace the old two-story structure with a four-story development, and YIMBY found a rendering of the project on the developer’s website.
BrooklynBoss Properties is planning to convert and possibly expand the two-story, 11,500 square-foot building at 661 Driggs Avenue, in northwest Williamsburg, into commercial-retail space. Several restaurant and retail tenants have come forward, including Shake Shack, although a tenant(s) has not been decided on. The building can be expanded by 4,000 square feet, which could be in the form of residential units, depending on the tenant. The owner acquired the property for $5.7 million this past summer.
