If you pay attention to development in Williamsburg, you might have heard of "The Edge." It's a big complex whose status has been the subject of much speculation over the last year. It's been on the verge of happening. It's been dead. The property has even been rumored to be up for sale. Well, the Edge is so alive that earth moving equipment should be reporting for duty in the near future. A building permit was issued last week for one of the towers. It will be a 29-story specimen, like the Northside Piers building just to the south, and will have 352 apartments. This matches the description of Building #1 of the three that will go up. It's supposed to have retail and restaurants on the first floor. The entire development is said to be 892 residential units and up to 100,000 square feet of retail. Northside Piers is getting a friend!
