Morris Adjmi-Designed Mixed-Use Building in South Williamsburg Reaches Fourth Floor


    One of Brooklyn’s most interesting new buildings has reached four stories. The Morris Adjmi-designed mixed-use building at 282 South 5th Street — it goes all the way through to Broadway between Marcy and Havermeyer — has been in the works since 2012, although a full permit was issued only in December.

    On Wednesday, the DOB issued a partial stop work order at the site because a permanent stair and other safety measures such as netting are not yet in place.

    The unusual design, which features an apartment tower inside a transparent gridded shell atop shops, will house 82 apartments in its 13 stories, as we reported previously. The architect also designed the Townhouses of Cobble Hill and the Wythe Hotel.
