We discovered this rendering on the fence at 377 Flushing Avenue between Kent and Franklin in south Williamsburg, where developer Rabsky Group is planning a seven-story mixed-use building. The ubiquitous Karl Fischer is the architect of record for the 99-unit development, which will also include ground-floor commercial space, according to new building permits issued last August.
We last reported that the building would be 177 units, but permits have been updated with the lower number of apartments and slightly less commercial space. And now there are fewer underground parking spaces — 50 instead of 106. The 159,092-square-foot building will also have 50 bike parking spaces, roof terraces and recreation spaces. When the City Council agreed to rezone the land, the developer promised to make the development affordable housing and build a five-story addition for the yeshiva school next door, as previously reported.
