Brooklyn-based developer Mark Spitzer plans two 99-unit, mixed-use buildings in Williamsburg

Mark Spitzer, using the LLC SBENY Holdings, plans to construct two new 14-story, 92,340-square-feet, mixed-use buildings with 99 dwelling units each. The proposed buildings would occupy four tax lots, two on each side of the street, at 100-110 Lee Avenue and 103-111 Lee Avenue in Williamsburg.

The plans were disclosed on April 29, when the developer filed a zoning map amendment to change from an R6 and R6/C1-3 to an R7X/C2-4 district, and a zoning text amendment to establish a mandatory inclusionary housing area to facilitate construction of the new buildings.

The 8,900-square-foot lot at 103 Lee Avenue is currently vacant, according to the city’s GIS map, although new building plans were filed with the Department of Buildings on December 17, 2015. Those plans called for a five-story, 29-unit, 32,590-square-feet, mixed-use building. The two-story building that used to occupy the lot was demolished in 2006.

City records do now indicate that Spitzer’s SBENY Holdings is the owner of 100-110 Lee Avenue, where the lots are currently occupied by retail stores.
