Another day, another building set to pop up in Brooklyn’s hippest neighborhood. Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use structure at 340 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site, comes five blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. This, of course, comes as part of the wave of new development in one of Brooklyn’s most notable neighborhoods. The project would be a door away from a recently built fire station for the FDNY designed by Michielli + Wyetzner Architects. Mortar Architecture + Development will be responsible for both developing and designing.

A few blocks to the northwest of McGolrick Park, off of Nassau Avenue, a new building is coming to 91 Diamond Street, in the heart of Greenpoint, which YIMBY can now reveal. Mortar Architecture + Development is behind the project, which will replace a vacant lot.
Mortar Architecture + Development has been featured several times on YIMBY, and now the firm is set to start work on another new building at 33 Frost Street, in Williamsburg. The site is about a block northwest of the BQE, and sits roughly equidistant from the Bedford and Metropolitan/Graham L Train Stops (as well as a few blocks north of the Metropolitan Av. stop on the G Train). The structure will have a total construction area of 11,740 square feet, with 9,997 square feet of residential space within that envelope, to be divided amongst 10 units. At an average size of almost 1,000 square feet, that means condominiums are possible. Mortar is both designing and developing the five-story project, and the lot is currently vacant.
The Kraus Organization has filed applications for a six-story, eight-unit residential building at 585 Union Avenue, in northern Williamsburg. The project will measure 12,135 square feet and its residential units should average 1,337 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. All of the apartments will come with private balconies, although the top-floor units will also feature space in an upper penthouse level and a private roof terrace. Amenities include private residential storage space and a single automobile parking space. Anthony Morena’s Midtown South-based Mortar ARCH + DEV is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide assemblage, at 585-587 Union Avenue, is currently occupied by two two-story townhouses. Demolition permit were filed earlier this month. The Lorimer Street/Metropolitan Avenue stop on the G and L trains is six blocks away.
Back in March, YIMBY posted the first rendering for a new development coming to 245 Manhattan Avenue, in Williamsburg. And now, a tipster has sent along a new set of images for the 5-story project, which is being designed by Mortar Architecture + Development.
