A group of rather spacious duplex rental apartments are coming to Williamsburg in what appears to be a slightly unconventional building model. Eight duplex apartments will be spread out over four mixed-use buildings in this project, located on Hope Street and Marcy Avenue, YIMBY reports.
The first of the mixed-use buildings will rise at 69 Hope Street on a currently vacant lot. The five-story building have offices on the ground and second floors and two duplexes spread out over the top three floors. The duplexes in this building will have about three bedrooms and approximately 2,150 square feet of space. The third, fourth, and fifth floor will each have terraces as well.
The other three buildings are all located side by side on Marcy Avenue at numbers 22,24, and 26. According to Google Maps, all three properties currently appear to be single story parking garages. The residences will rise on top of these structures. Each of the three buildings will stand four stories tall when complete. The ground floor in each will be used as retail. And much like in the Hope Street building, the top three stories will have two duplexes each. The three buildings however will share a common facade, and the duplexes will have about four-bedrooms, compared to the three at Hope Street.
It appears that the building on Hope Street will then be connected through the back with the ones on Marcy Avenue as there are at least a couple of buildings directly adjacent to the Hope Street property along Marcy Avenue.
Patoma Partners are listed as the developer on the project, and Studio Esnal will be designing the buildings, which are located right next to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
