Things are getting serious at 204 Wythe, the former Western Carpet site now under-construction. The developers just released the above rendering with lots of juicy details of what’s to come for the large rental project. Here’s a snippet from the press release:
The development consists of 229 residential units and 7,500 sf of ground floor retail with dedicated parking spaces. The project is seven stories and totals 248,000 gross sf. The retail component features 275 feet of wrap-around glass frontage with 13 foot ceilings; reasonable divisions will be considered. Mack Real Estate Capital and Urban Development Partners are the Developers.
The plan, and the rendering, has changed quite a bit since 2011. Back then, plans called for 5 stories and 157 units. The developers also ditched the old brick design for something much sleeker, and more typical of new Williamsburg developments. AREA Property Partners is still associated with the development, although they’ve since teamed up with Urban Development Partners according to the press release. We don’t have a recent shot of the construction site but the word is that construction is moving along with the retail temporary certificate of occupancy expected this summer and one for the building expected in the third quarter of this year. Zelnik & Company is in charge of marketing the retail. Curbed noticed that construction started up late last summer, after the Western Carpet building was demolished in early 2012.
