Construction workers at the Hecla Iron Works site will have to fight the temptation to grab a beer at the Brooklyn Brewery.

Sam Lefkowitz’s North 11 Associates filed plans to combine and convert two of the five warehouses at The Landmarked Williamsburg Complex Across The Street from the brewery. It is unclear which of the five industrial properties at 100-118 North 11th Street would be combined, and then converted.

Commercial space will dominate the new structure, with 90,000 square feet planned, according to a permit application filed Monday. The building will also have 43,000 square feet of residential space. The new structure will be four stories, like the two buildings being combined.

The complex, which is also home to an Adidas design studio and a Brooklyn Brewery storage facility. The company’s actual brewery is across the street.

Michael Avramides, the architect of record, declined to comment. Lefkowitz could not be reached.

The owners bought the Hecla Iron Works, completed in 1897, for $16.4 million back in 2011.
