Simon Dushinsky’s Rabsky Group has filed new building applications for a sizable eight-story building on Whipple Street in Williamsburg, bringing new development to a mostly commercial and industrial area off Flushing Avenue. The 51-unit residential building at 7 Whipple Street will have 45,970 square feet of residential space and feature a backyard with a playground, storage for 27 bikes and a community room.
Curtis and Ginsberg Architects, who’ve worked on the Navy Green affordable housing project and on the nearby mixed-income Cook Street Apartments, will design the building. The same property owner has held onto three vacant former parking lots at 5, 9 and 11 Whipple Streets since 1988, and all three lots will become part of the development. GMAP
