A new rental development has launched in Williamsburg, Brownstoner reported, at 205 North 9th Street and the corner of Driggs Avenue. The development sits on a site once popular with some Brooklyn squatters, the blog noted. Two men cardboarded the landing to some fire stairs in 2009 and were living under it. They even found a source of electricity and would watch TV on the sidewalk. Now, the Karl Fischer-designed development, named “The Driggs,” is marketing 126 new rental units, ranging from $2,000 for studios up to $4,475 for the most expensive two-bedroom. The building will be ready for full occupancy in January or February, according to the listings on [Brownstoner]
