Brownstoner found two new renderings posted at the constuction site of the forthcoming Williamsburg Whole Foods at 242 Bedford. The new design is much more understated than the previous rendering. From Brownstoner:
The drawings show a combination black steel and glass with red brick and a newly simplified roof; a cube hovers over the corner of the building on the Bedford side. (A previous rendering showed the view from Bedford with a different roof line and entrance.)
We think it’s a very attractive look in keeping with Williamsburg’s — and the site’s — industrial past. We hope it will be built, but nothing much has happened on this site for years, although earlier this month the Brooklyn Eagle ran a story saying construction was under way.
