After a decade of new towers sprouting along the North Williamsburg waterfront, new residential construction in the area has begun to slow down over the past year, as the neighborhood just doesn’t have many development sites left. However, one builder managed to snag a lot at 106 North 3rd Street, between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street.

When we wrote about plans for 221 East 138th Street last summer, the developer hoped to include affordable housing in the new South Bronx apartment building. Now Anthony Gurino, of Tahoe Development, has decided to make the project in Mott Haven entirely market-rate, joining the ranks of a few other ambitious projects in this industrial neighborhood.
Nearly a decade in the making, a Williamsburg residential project is finally nearing the finish line. The 51-unit, seven-story development at 150 North 12th Street has topped out, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit mixed-income rental project at 221 East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, but now Tahoe Development is swapping plans for a seven-story, 50-unit market-rate condominium building. Welcome2TheBronx reports the developer is abandoning plans to include affordable units due to cost concerns. It would also be the first market-rate condo project in the South Bronx since the 2008 financial crisis. The condos will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, and the new building will contain ground-floor retail space as previously planned. Hudson Square’s Michael Muroff Architect is the architect of record. The existing two-story warehouse is currently being demolished.
One of the last few handsome, early 20th century factories on Williamsburg’s Northside will become luxury rentals. Greenpoint-based developer Eser Realty plans to convert the four-story brick building at 28-46 Roebling Street to 58 apartments, adding a fifth floor in the process, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the project, which is about to begin construction.
