The owner of the former Tung Fa Noodle Factory in Williamsburg, which most recently housed a group of artists who were evicted last year after losing a long legal battle, is aiming to convert the property to apartments, according to BuzzBuzzHome.

Developer Mona Gora-Friedman filed an application with the Department of Buildings seeking to convert 338 Berry Street into an eight-story, 65-unit residential development, but it was disapproved, the website noted.

The apartments would span studios through three-bedrooms.

DXA studio is the architect of record, and they plan an exterior restoration of the property. Most notably, they will add 6,000 square feet in solar paneling for electricity, as well as a 5,000-square-foot terrace to collect storm water and provide insulation.

Gora-Friedman purchased the site for $12 million in 2005. [BuzzBuzzHome]Zachary Kussin
