Construction on the 81-rental apartment building at the former site of a Williamsburg White Castle is wrapping up. According to a dispatch from Brownstoner, the boxy orange brick building has topped out, and a glass safety barrier has been installed along the roof line. Windows—of which there are many—and doors are in, too, at least on the Metropolitan Avenue side of the building. (The Humboldt side, Brownstoner notes, still has “some window and sidewalk work” left ahead.)
Developed by Adam America—the same firm responsible for the zig-zaggy condos at 190 South 1st Street in Williamsburg, the industrial-chic converted warehouse at 51 Jay Street in Dumbo, and blocky 251 1st Street in Park Slope—and designed by the unnervingly prolific Isaac & Stern, the new digs at 371 Humboldt will include studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom rentals, as well as 10,000 feet of retail space.
The teaser website for the building promises the rentals are coming in summer 2017, and StreetEasy notes that the interiors will be “meticulously curated” by Paris Forino to “take design to new heights” with a balance of “refined details and bold choices.”
In more concrete terms, the apartments boast “white oak flooring throughout, high-end kitchens with stainless appliances, and contemporary bathroom fixtures.” Some residences come with private terraces, and all residents get access to a landscaped roof deck and an “entertainment-focused resident lounge,” complete with a screening area, pool table, and poker table.
