A Townhouse Rises on the Southside


This may look like a renovation of an existing building, but in fact it is a brand new townhouse going up at 112 South 1st Street in South Williamsburg. The project is one of at least 10 new townhouses in three developments going up in this neck of the woods, according to the tipster who sent us these photos.

(The others include one across the street on what is now a parking lot and the Meshberg and Wythe Lane projects, which we’ll continue to cover as construction progresses.)

This one is designed by architect Steven Kratchman. It will house one family over four floors, according to permits. There will be parking on the ground floor, and the addition visible on the roof is only a bulkhead for the stair, according to the Schedule A.
