Development Notebook: Burg Building Finally Making Progress

January 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

This is 205 N. 8 Street in Williamsburg, which has been under construction since 1986. Just kidding. But it’s been going up for a long, long time. It’s a six story building with five units and the original permit was approved four years ago. It’s also attracted 14 complaints to the Dept. of Buildings and has several active violations, but, hey, it’s actually in the process of becoming a building after being stalled for all these years. Unless, of course, it had a burst of activity and stopped again. The thing next door, eh, still not so good.
