Mortar Architecture + Development is busy. The firm behind East Williamsburg's incoming box o' charred wood and steel and its curtainless dollhouse is bringing another six-story development to the neighborhood, this time in the, as dubbed by YIMBY, "vinyl revival" style so popular to the neighborhood. The building at 139 Meserole Street near Manhattan Avenue will have eight apartments including two duplex penthouses, which might in part occupy a recessed top floor, judging by the rendering's lack of a pictured (but permit-confirmed) sixth floor.
The firm will be moving out of its familiar Brooklyn territory with a new East Village project at 324 East 4th Street. The firm is designing an appendage for an existing Greek Revival-style building that will turn the four-story, three-apartment structure into a seven-story, 11-apartment building. Unfortunately, the new limb isn't really anything to write home about.
