This is 170 N. 5 Street in Williamsburg, which comes from the drawing boards of RKT&B Architecture and Urban Design. It's interesting in that it's part of a group of buildings on N. 4 and N. 5 Street between Bedford and Driggs Avenues that includes Hot Karl Fischer's N Forth and Gene Kaufman's Rialto as well as another Hot Karl going up between them (whose image has not been revealed to the world). The new addition to N. 5 will be four stories, but only shows up on Department of Buildings records as having one unit which is one of those, you know, pesky typos. What's a little more clear is that the development has logged a couple of dozen complaints and been served with a variety of violations.
