This is the possible future of 40 Berry Street in Williamsburg, AKA 34 Berry, which will be a rental building with 142 units on seven floors. The 96,000 square foot building at Berry & N. 12 Streets comes from Perkins Eastman. It's unclear if these renderings on the architect's website (which seem to mistakenly bear the address of the building next door) are the final design, but they're sure interesting. New plans for the building were, literally, filed yesterday. The development will require a significant amount of demolition, including the take down of a rather nice old industrial structure at 99 N. 11 Street, for which demolition permits have been issued. The bottom line: More new friends for 55 Berry in this once quiet and lonely corner of the Burg.
