Rendering of 66 Ainslie Street via Slate Property Group
Here’s the first look at 66 Ainslie Street, a seven-story, 50-unit rental building set to rise from the East Williamsburg corner of Ainslie and Keap Streets. According to The Real Deal, the project is being developed by Slate Property Group, led by Martin Nussbaum and David Schwartz, and the site’s previous sole owners, Tavolario and Meszaros Realty Corporation. Slate purchased the site for $15 million in an off-market deal in September.
Construction permits filed this past November by Aufgang Architects indicate that the building will contain 42,500 square feet of residential and retail space, 23 parking spaces in an underground garage, and a roof deck and fitness center. The site is also around the corner from the Metropolitan-Lorimer G and L train stop. The filing of a “major alteration” application indicates that at least some part of the existing one-story factory building will remain.

Well, before you start running to 311 South 4th Street, take a second to look around at this fantastic $3.5 million home.

Though spring is typically considered the height of house tour season, the fall months offer their own roster of open-door events. It pretty much goes without saying that we love peeking inside all kinds of homes, so we’ve rounded up here the best of the upcoming tours. From industrial Tribeca lofts to Victorian homes on the Delaware River, there’s definitely something for every interior design lover.

Space-efficient living is a must in New York City, where savvy residents build shelves into every nook and cranny of their tiny apartments. While the ad-lib additions often get the job done, they don’t always work with a home’s aesthetic. With some help from Design42 Architecture, the owners of this industrial loft were able to sidestep that problem and make the most of their space without sacrificing style.

When we say “out of this world,” we don’t just mean it’s an amazing architectural feat — this apartment was actually modeled after Spaceship 1 through its technology and methodology. Also known as Luminal Gallery, the loft is the first dedicated video-art gallery in New York City. The 6,000-square-foot space was designed by architectural firm Jendretzki and features organic architecture meant to evoke the future, which is playfully juxtaposed against industrial loft details like cast-iron columns and exposed wood ceiling beams.
