Work’s been ongoing at the Williamsburg construction site bordering Kellogg’s Diner and the Metropolitan G stop, but new renderings for the site uncovered by Buzz Buzz Home and 6sqft show that the design for the project has changed since it broke ground in March.
The site is giving way to a 58-apartment and 189-key condo and hotel building developed by Chetrit Group and designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects. Renderings for the project were first unveiled in February 2015—the site had been surrounded by scaffolding for at least five years at that point—depicting a monolithic 14-story building set back from Metropolitan Avenue.
New renderings show that the design has been finessed a bit. The building now appears to be angled back from Metropolitan Avenue, with its tallest point at 14 stories set near the corner of Metropolitan Avenue and Keap Street.
The building will have underground parking, a restaurant and bar, a spa, a swimming pool, and ground-floor retail space.
Chetrit purchased the lot on which the hotel will rise for $1.4 million in 2007, according to property records.
