The Chetrit Group is looking to construct a 160,000-square-foot building in Williamsburg, according to permits filed with the city today.

The five-story property, located at 452 Rodney Street, will rise right next to Chetrit’s 14-story hotel project at 500 Metropolitan Avenue.

Filings indicate the new building will have 14 residential units divided among more than 65,300 square feet, indicating large-sized units. The remainder — and largest part — of the building will be devoted to commercial space.

The neighboring building at 500 Metropolitan Avenue will hold roughly 89,000 square feet of residential space and 56,584 square feet of commercial space.

A representative from Chetrit could not immediately be reached.

Kunicki Bernstein Architects is serving as the architect of record, the filings show.
