Renderings of 321 Wythe via ND Architecture & Design
A newly constructed mixed-use building located near the Williamsburg Bridge has launched a lottery for 39 middle-income apartments. Built on the site of a former parking lot and single-story church, the 19-story tower at 321 Wythe Avenue includes 130 rental units, two floors of amenities, and an adjacent healthcare facility. Notably, because developer Watermark Capital Group is leasing the property from Saints Peter and Paul Church, certain activities “not in line with Catholicism” will be prohibited, DNAinfo reported in 2015. This includes a ban on things related to abortion, birth control, euthanasia, pornography, and stem-cell research.
Despite these strange stipulations, the ND Architecture-designed tower does sit in a prime location, just steps from a host of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and the Williamsburg waterfront. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the available 17, $1,999/month one-bedrooms and the 22 $2,399/month two-bedrooms.
