Yet another hipster favorite is falling in Williamsburg to make way for residents with even deeper pockets.

La Esquina, the 1950s era metal diner on the corner of Wythe Avenue and North 3rd Street, will be cleared to make way for a six-story, 10-apartment development, according to Curbed.

The building is being developed by Sandy Stillman, who has owned the site since 1997. According to Curbed, the permit filings state that the new building will be 16,736 square feet in total and have 4,351 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Tom Winter is the architect of record. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
