Rabsky Group is beefing up its presence in Brooklyn even more with plans to build a roughly 73,000-square-foot mixed-use building in Williamsburg.

The firm pre-filed plans for the project at 58 Union Avenue with the Department of Buildings on Tuesday. It will include residential, commercial and community space and stand seven stories tall with 65 residential units.

Simon Dushinsky and Isaac Rabinowitz’s Rabsky Group purchased the Union Avenue site from Pfizer in 2012 for $12.75 million, according to property records. It is located very close to its larger 1,146-unit Broadway Triangle project at 200 Harrison Avenue, but the company appears to be planning them as separate buildings.

Representatives for Rabsky Group did not respond to a request for comment.

Rabsky, one of Brooklyn’s most prolific developers, recently llanded a refinancing package for more than $200 million for its Rheingold Brewery site at 10 Montieth Street in August and closed on buying 313-331 Bond Street in Gowanus from All Year Management for $95 million.
