Grand Street Development is brewing up two new buildings on the same block in Williamsburg.
Both projects at 774 Grand Street and 213 Maujer Street will be designed by the Meshberg Group. Gene Kaufman is the architect of record. 774 Grand, the (much) larger of the prospective buildings, will be eight stories with 62 units, according to the plan exam application filed October 16th. The development will have ground-floor retail, enclosed parking and a roof terrace. The site was home to Liberty Department Stores, Inc.
213 Maujer Street, located between Humboldt Street and Bushwick Avenue, will be four stories and six units. At 5,858 square feet, the project isn’t even one-tenth the size of 774 Grand Street, which will measure 67,425 square feet.
Grand Street Development, founded by Dean Marchi, focuses on “reinvent[ing] the historic warehouse and cast-iron aesthetic with contemporary comforts and conveniences,” according to the company’s site. The firm’s previous project in the neighborhood was eight-unit 174 Jackson Street, which was also designed by Meshberg Group. The building went on the market in 2011, and initial asking prices ranged from $459,000 to $719,000.
