Rendering and More Details on Kaufman’s Williamsburg Projects


Architect Gene Kaufman, who has become one of Brooklyn’s more prolific architects during the recent housing boom, has just released a rendering and more details about two of his building projects under way in Williamsburg.

Above is a rendering for 56 North 9th Street at Kent Avenue, which broke ground over the summer. It will be six stories tall with 58 apartments, as previously reported. The bottom two floors of the 108,000 square foot building will be devoted to retail and dining. The building will have a roof terrace and include parking.

Construction also started over the summer on another Kaufman building on the opposite side of the neighborhood, at 774-776 Grand Street at Humboldt. That one will be an eight-story, 64-unit apartment building with 82,000 square feet.

Kaufman adds these two projects to an already long list of Williamsburg buildings including The Decora, The Lucent, The Residences at The Williamsburg and Schaefer Landing.

What do you think of the look of 56 North 9th Street?
