We’re checking in on ODA’s mixed-use development at 190-196 South First Street in Williamsburg.
The proposed 13-story building on the corner of Driggs Avenue would have 46 apartments, according permits filed in September. There would be 30,478 square feet of residential space, and 12,310 square feet of community facility space on the first and second floors. The developer is Jeff Gershon.
The plan exam application was disapproved in November, but hope floats. Here is a site diagram, showing the development rising on three combined tax lots:

The property, formerly used as a coffee warehouse, was sold for $6.5 million in June 2013, according to public records.
