A single-story industrial building in Williamsburg on the corner of Rodney and Hope streets will give way to, yup, more apartments. TRD reports that the 16,000-square-foot warehouse, formerly home to a Quaker Sugar Company distribution center, will be incorporated into the base of a new seven-story, 126-rental building designed by Aufgang Architects. Slate Property Group is developing the project, which they say will be less glassy and more masonry-based than surrounding new builds (which is probably a good thing, considering its location directly across from the BQE.)
Slate also says the project will be "highly amenitized," although they haven't divulged how, other than filing for 14,000 square feet of ground floor retail, a gym, and recreation room.
