Gigantic 800-Unit Development May Rise in South Williamsburg

New, 11 comments

The Rabsky Group has filed plans with the city to rezone two manufacturing blocks on Wallabout Street near the Flushing Avenue G stop with the intent to bring a ginormous mixed-use development to the site. The Real Deal reports that the prolific Brooklyn developer, also behind the Rheingold Brewery redevelopment in Bed-Stuy, plans to bring eight buildings to the full-block sites at 249 and 334 Wallabout Street that would hold 622 market-rate apartments, 155 affordable apartments, and 32,000 square feet of retail space. Rabsky Group bought the Marcy Houses-adjacent sites on the Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy border for $12.8 million in 2012 from Pfizer. Another of the pharma giant's Brooklyn factories has since been converted into an office building.
