At the northern edge of Williamsburg, near the Greenpoint border, work is beginning on a 12-unit project developed by Ami Barr’s Djem Land LLC and designed by Queens-based InFocus Design and Planning. The building is situated at 171-173 Bayard Street, between Graham Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard, and replaces a one-story, nondescript light industrial building that the Long Island-based developers snapped up for $1.8 million in early 2014.

Renderings posted on the architect’s website show an orderly facade of red brick, large sash windows, and steel lintels. A somewhat strange marble cornice tops the first three levels and the fourth story is set back, simulating a modern rooftop addition atop a rehabilitated manufacturing building.

Building permits were approved last year and call for two identical buildings on each of the lots. Each will contain six units and span nearly 6,000 square feet of gross area. The first floor will house two apartments; above are two double-height homes with a mezzanine level; and the third and fourth stories will contain two duplex residences. According to renderings created by David Valentin of 3DDV, interiors will further carry the project’s rustic/industrial aesthetic with exposed brick walls, wide-plank floors, and white ceramic tiles. The team is also building another six-story residential building nearby at 57 Havemeyer Street.
