We were excited by initial reports that Wythe Hotel architect Morris Adjmi would be designing this six-story condo building planned for a former parking lot in south Williamsburg, but unfortunately it turns out he has no connection to the project. The architect has not yet been disclosed.

Developer Ian Bracha of B+B Capital is planning to build the condos on the vacant lot at 194-196 South 3rd Street near the corner of Roebling, reported Curbed.  However, the address of the building will be 200 South 3rd Street. It will house 45,000 square feet of residential space, indoor parking, 15,000 square feet of community space and possibly an art school.

No DOB permits have been filed for the site since 2006, when plans for a six-story building fell through. Bracha purchased the property last week for $6,500,000, public records show. GMAP

The massive 11-story residential development at 146 South 4th Street in South Williamsburg is coming along quickly. The windows are in, and the exterior looked close to completion when we stopped by last week. Even better, the building actually looks like the rendering we posted back in April, designed by ND Architecture LLC.

This site was stalled for years, then construction started about a year ago. A few blocks away on Broadway, the similarly large — but quite different looking — building at 53 Broadway started leasing in July.

When 146 South 4th Street is finished, it will have 76,745 square feet, 113 rental apartments, 79 parking spots, a gym, and a rooftop terrace. In the spring, developer Rabsky Group projected that construction would finish this month, but it looks like they’re going to need more time.

What do you think of the (almost) finished product? GMAP
