Another day, another new development for Williamsburg. A six-story, 27-unit development is likely coming to 280 Metropolitan Avenue between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street. Plans for the condominium propose ground floor retail space, underground parking, and private rooftop terraces for select units. Developed by Charles Blaichman and designed by Garrison Architects, plans, currently pending with the Department of Buildings, also call for a gym, common rooftop terrace, and impressively, a common backyard. Buzz Buzz Home revealed renderings of the new development, which are likely preliminary following their removal from the architect's website. As the building is in its early stages, Garrison Architects has declined to comment further.
According to BuzzBuzz, details for the planned building on the architect's site also included a comprehensive rundown of building materials, from the exterior's zinc corrugated panels and terracotta-clad stair tower to the interior's walnut flooring and white marble countertops. The development will assume two lots that were acquired for $7.97 million in mid-2013. Demolition permits were filed for the existing two-story structures on both sites in November 2013.
