GreenbergFarrow, a nationally prominent architectural, planning, engineering and development consulting firm, has been tapped by Steiner NYC to design a warehouse-inspired condominium and townhouse development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Steiner NYC and its predecessor entities have been builders for 100 years and developed over ten million square feet. Their most recent development project is Steiner Studios, a 310,000 s/f state of the art film and television production facility in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard.
As part of its growing portfolio of New York City residential projects, GreenbergFarrow will transform the long shuttered site of the Old Butch Mustard Company into “80 Metropolitan,” a six story building with 114 lofts adjoined by nine three story townhouses. The factory had been vacant for more than twenty years.
Located at the corner of Metropolitan and Wythe Avenues, the building will be topped by 24 rooftop cabanas available for purchase by individual homeowners. The loft condominiums range in size from 529 s/f studios to 1,483 s/f three bedroom units. The townhouses are more than 2,000 s/f, with three bedrooms, private backyards and second floor terraces.
Steiner, which purchased the site in 2006, had hoped to incorporate the factory directly into the new development’s design plans. But after weighting construction code issues, handicapped access, and several design schemes created by GreenbergFarrow, the company decided to build from the ground up and create a residential complex that would capture the neighborhood’s history.
Steiner expects 80 Metropolitan will be ready for occupancy in early 2009. Halstead Property’s development division is exclusively marketing the property.
