102 Scholes Street
During the Recession in 2010, an aging brick house was partially demolished at 102 Scholes Street in Williamsburg. A new developer took over the property last year, knocking down the rest of the shell and starting work on a new building. We have a look at what’s rising on the lot between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue, across from New York City Housing Authority’s Ten Eyck Houses.
The finished four-story development will bring eight rentals to the long-stalled site. Those eight apartments will be divided across 5,395 square feet of residential space, with average units measuring 670 square feet. Each floor will host two units, and plans indicate the top floor will be slightly taller than the rest, with ceiling heights of 16 feet.
The facade will be clad in a mix of corrugated metal panels, brick, and wood. A few apartments on the upper floors will have glass balconies.
