WTF? This six-story monstrosity is a single-family residence

dumb

That’s right, we said single-family residence. Um, enough already Williamsburg.

A new building has been revealed for the corner of Kent Avenue and North 7th Street in Williamsburg, and while it masquerades like mostly every new development in the area, there’s a catch: the pretty massive, seven-story building with ground floor retail will be a single-family residence. Designed by Michael Muroff Architect, the building will have 3,000-square-feet of commercial space and 9,771-square-feet of residential space. YIMBY eyed that the residence will have private elevator access, an underground garage elevator, and a third floor infinity pool. The construction of the massive manse will see the combining of three lots on Kent Avenue, lending the building the address 119-123 Kent Avenue. No word yet on pricing, but it will probably be pretty astronomical.

      There goes my very 1st apartment in New York eight years ago. 119 Kent. Amazing view of the river. There used to be a latin club downstairs that would shake the floor boards on Saturday nights and a chain link fence across the street (now East River park) that we used to sneak through and drink beers on the waterfront. ::: sigh :::

      • Thanks for sharing that memory. Luckily there’s places around the city like this that still exist and people having these kinds of “first new york” experiences there, right now. I agree it’s sad to lose that, but what a nice experience to have had…

    Fuckin’ christ. So now the yuppies buying the million-dollar condos are going to get priced out by the super-rich taking over dozens of apartments to confirm that they are better than us plebes.

    I hope the jobless, student loan-riddled 20-somethings of America look up from their iCrack long enough to see that their future has been stolen, and it’s either work for people like this, or be poor.

  3. The ultra rich will get more richer and the middle class will be joining the poor…
