Review of 338 Berry Street by Carter Horsley

The 8-story Williamsberry at 338 Berry Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is a residential conversion and expansion of a former, 7-story, Tung Fa Noodle factory.

It has 63 condominium apartments.

It was built in 1914.  In the 1990s, it began to be used by some artists for studios.

It was converted in 2014 by Mona Gora-Friedman, who bought the property in 2005 for $12 million, and is expected to open in 2016.

DXA Studio is the design architect for the conversion.

Paris Forino did the interiors.

The building is two blocks east of Kent Avenue and is adjacent to the north side of the Williamsburg Bridge.

Bottom Line

A handsome, gray industrial building just to the north of the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn that is being converted into condominium lofts with an added sawtooth, solar panel, one-story rooftop addition.

Description

The building has a center pediment on its roofline in front of the handsome gray metal setback one-story addition with a large, saw-tooth solar panel roof.

The building’s lobby has copper accents, iron doors and Moroccan mosaic tiles.

Amenities

The building has a roof deck, a gym, a garden and a doorman.
