Rabsky Group is moving forward his plan to develop two full blocks in Williamsburg into more than 1,000 apartments.
The Williamsburg-based development firm led by Simon Dushinsky and Isaac Rabinowitz filed paperwork indicating it plans to build more than 1 million square feet of apartments at the Broadway Triangle site bounded by Harrison Avenue, Walton Street, Union Avenue and Gerry Street, according to New York YIMBY.
The plans call for a seven-building complex with 1,147 apartments (287 of which would be set aside with below-market rents), 64,800 square feet of retail and 407 parking spaces, documents filed with the Department of City Planning show.
The developer paid $12.8 million in 2012 to buy the properties from Pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant that owned a large swath of real estate in the area. The vacant lots have sat fallow ever since Rabsky took control. [YIMBY] – Rich Bockmann
