Plenty of Progress, Scaffolding Coming Down at South Williamsburg Townhouses


South Williamsburg’s Townhouses of Wythe Lane have recently seen plenty of development progress, according to photos sent in by a reader.

According to the tipster, scaffolding began coming down last week from the site at 51 South 5th Street, where developer KUB Capital and its in-house design team, KUB Design, along with SZ Projects, are designing six townhouses. Helmed by principals Shawn Katz and Roger Bittenbender, KUB’s other Brooklyn projects include a contemporary concrete building at 253 Pacific Street and a renovated 1850s townhouse at 489 Henry Street.


The townhouses are situated at the corner of Wythe Avenue and South 4th Street, next to Domino Site E, Domino’s first building project, and the former site of the temporary Havemeyer Park.

When complete, each townhouse will be approximately 3,800 square feet, with parking, a roof terrace and back yard. The exteriors will be a mix of brick, stainless steel and concrete formed with boards.

The development is part of a recent row house revival trend in Brooklyn. Other new-construction townhouse rows include the 12 Williamsburg Social Townhouses on North 3rd Street between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue, long filled since they debuted in 2013.


The tipster who sent in the photos was a fan of the building, saying they look, “really good in person.”
