The latest new construction project in booming South Williamsburg is 95 South 5th Street, a new six-story building which will rise on top of a red, turn-of-the-century warehouse. New York YIMBY spotted the rendering of the 23-unit building planned for the corner of South 5th and Berry Street. When it’s finished, the 18,000-square-foot development will fill the vacant lot next door to the three-story warehouse.
It will also have a 675-square-foot eating and drinking establishment on the ground floor and nine parking spots, according to alteration permits issued in August. Standard Architects is designing the project, which was filed with the DOB as a conversion and enlargement of the existing building, not a new one. The developer is Horrigan Development.
They’ll need some good soundproofing because the development sits right across from the elevated tracks and the approach to the Williamsburg Bridge. The building design is better than some of the other old-new combinations we have seen recently. What do you think?
