Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Laundry Day
Filed under: 11211, Stuff That Makes Miss Heather Happy, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
I was asked recently by a curious citizen exactly what is slated to grace this rather sizable lot (which is located at Leonard Street and Meeker Avenue). As it would happen I know because I attend the Community Board Land Use Committee (ULURP) in which this is discussed. Prepare yourselves: it’s good news!
There will be two residential apartment buildings on this property: one will be market rate, the other affordable housing. The reason this was discussed at a “ULURP” meeting is the developer wanted permission to add residential units to the previous in exchange for building the latter. I saw the plans, materials to be used, etc., and I have to say what they have in mind is mighty nice. This is really saying something given Karl Fischer is the architect. I was especially pleased to learn the garden area they plan to build-out will be accessible to/shared by both buildings!
