Plans have been approved to construct a set of near-identical buildings at 413 and 417 Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg. Brooklyn-based developer Joel Berkowitz of Madison Management is listed on record for the project along with Michael Avramides Architects. Both six-story, ten-unit buildings are expected to reach a height of 67 feet and will likely be rentals. Since the pair will each have 6,719 square feet of residential space, the average size for the ten apartments will be just 671 square feet.
J Goldman Design released a rendering of the two buildings with the current 2-story structure at 415 Manhattan Avenue separating them. Although the design only shows five floors, zoning diagrams reveal a 15-foot setback on the sixth level. Amenities include cellar space, balconies, a laundry room, and recreation room. The rentals will rise between Meeker Avenue and Bayard Street, with McCarren Park and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway only a short distance away.

Although the initial thought was that the same developers would also gain the lot at 415 Manhattan Avenue, an approved application filed by the Design Bureau of Leonid Krupnik for another 6-story rental building shows a very different project. The structure will also reach 67 feet in height but will contain 9 units and a first floor healthcare center. Listed amenities for the proposed project include two rooftop terraces.
