In 2010, a brick building on Conselyea Street in Williamsburg collapsed, injuring workers as they were attempting to add an extra floor and penthouse. Now mysterious developer Conselyea Residence LLC and architect Yossi Melamed are planning a completely new condo building on the site, which is between Union and Lorimer and extremely close to the BQE. Permits show it will have four stories with a total of 3,696 square feet of residential space. Melamed passed along the first renderings for a revived 34 Conselyea, and they're definitely modern. The first floor will house a duplex with a rec room and a two-tier yard, while the second and third floors will have 2BR/2BA apartments with rear balconies. The top-floor unit will have a rear terrace and higher ceiling heights.
Excavation started last week, Melamed said, so construction work is already underway.
Finally, a shared roof garden will top it all off. In a funny-sad real estate twist, the old collapsed 34 Conselyea was owned by Lucille Maundrell, mother of aptsandlofts.com brokerage head David Maundrell, who grew up there. Maybe Maundrell will market the new condos?
