Is everybody sitting down? Good, because this is going to be a tough pill to swallow, but an old factory building in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg is being converted into a luxury rental building. Scientists have long predicted that this type of thing could happen in Williamsburg, and now it finally has. NY YIMBY has a rendering of the planned building at 28 Roebling StreetEser Realty, which has owned the building since 1980, is behind the conversion, with architect Michael Muroff designing. "We're going to restore what isn't there," Muroff told YIMBY. "We're going to install a new cornice, and put those Flemish-style roof lines back, like it's always been there." There will also be 10,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.
