Another small factory in Brooklyn is attempting to obtain legal residential approval, just outside of an Industrial Business Zone in Williamsburg. Nicholas Scire-Chianetta, head of NSC Architecture, submitted plans for a building with 8,660 feet of commercial space and 24,897 square feet of residential space at 222 Varet St., according to YIMBY.
- The loft portion of the property would be divided into 20 apartments, each averaging 1,244 square feet.
- The first floor of the building would remain commercial.
- According to media reports, 222 Varet St. was resident-occupied long before the state re-opened applications to landlords.
- Based on the city planning maps, 222 Varet St. falls just outside of one of the Industrial Business Zones.
