Renderings have been revealed (h/t Curbed) of Djem Land LLC’s planned 12-unit residential development at 171-173 Bayard Street, in northern Williamsburg, located a block north of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Although it will appear as a single structure, the project will technically have two separate buildings, each to rise four stories and 50 feet in height, and to contain six units apiece. The residential square-footage will total 8,228 square feet, which means individual units will average a rental-sized 686 square feet. Elmhurst-based InFocus Design and Planning is the architect, and two single-story brick structures were demolished early last year.

One of the last remnants of decades of disinvestment and abandonment in Bed-Stuy is about to be redeveloped. A 16-unit residential building is coming to the empty lot at 401 Gates Avenue, between Bedford and Nostrand Avenues.
Lower East Side-based Andy Mak has been granted permits to build a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1415 67th Street, in northern Bensonhurst, located roughly five blocks from subway stops on either the D or N trains. The building will measure a total of 7,405 square feet, which works out to units averaging a family-sized 925 square feet apiece. Wu Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. The site consists of three tax lots, and a two-story townhouse and an adjacent structure must be demolished. Initially, applications filed back in 2014 called for a smaller building with nine units, but that was never approved.
Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 230 Withers Street, in northern Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The structure will measure 5,717 square feet in total, which means units will average a spacious 1,143 square feet apiece. The unit on the fourth floor will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse, and Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. An existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Omri Bar-Mashiah has filed applications for a five-story, four-unit residential project at 316 12th Street, in southern Park Slope, four blocks from subway stops on the R, F, and G trains. Residential units will surely be condos, given they will average 1,233 square feet apiece in the 4,932 square-foot structure. The fifth-floor penthouse will be associated with the unit spanning the fourth floor. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were recently filed for the two-story house presently occupying the site.
