Development Notebook: Urban Green Office Closed, Building Rising

August 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Urban Green in Williamsburg is one of those projects that has taken ages to get moving. But it’s definitely moving. Its sales office on N. 6 Street is now closed and the building is rising on both the N. 5 and N. 6 Street sides. Early on, we nicknamed Urban Death early on in the construction process because of the astoundingly dangerous conditions in the gaping construction pit which persisted for months, including an open fence allowing access to a three story deep hole. We’ll the hole is gone. And, in its place, the 44-unit building is rising. Move-ins are promised for this winter, but that could be a big, big stretch given that it’s August and the building is still coming out of the ground.
