When all is said and done 80 Metropolitan will be one of the biggest non-waterfront developments in Williamsburg, squatting on an entire city block. The 80 Met site--of which the demolished Old Dutch Mustard Building was but a small part--is bounded by Kent and Wyth Avenues, Metropolitan Avenue and N. 1st Street. Developer Steiner Equities recently took control of the remaining buildings on the property and, last week, fences went up and demolition got underway. The second phase of 80 Metropolitan (the former Wet Dream, though that ad campaign appears to have been mercifully dropped) will involve 50 condo units in seven-story building. The first phase has 123 units in a six-story building. A row of "town homes" is going up on N 1st Street. Meanwhile, the second phase will be a seven-story building with 50 units. The entire block is getting a big, black fence, which should provide ample decorative opportunities for 80 Met haters.
