Former Williamsburg industrial lot to become green condominiums

Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSBURG -

A vacant lot on Driggs Avenue could soon become home to new condominiums.

It's currently a so-called brownfield site -- a former industrial lot that needs excavation and cleanup.

Residents say they're excited to see it spruced up so long as it doesn't disrupt their neighborhood.

The 40 new housing units will range in size from studios to four bedrooms. Many of them will have outer spaces inspired by McCarren Park, according to the developer.

Construction is expected to begin this winter and conclude in 2020.
