164 Attorney St. is being converted to 7 stories of residential

The assault on Attorney Street auto shops continues with news of another residential development.

We already reported on the new seven-story luxury box coming to 155 Attorney Street. Demolition crews cleared that former beer wholesaler warehouse in a jiffy – about a week. While this plot waits the inevitable, we now look across the street to 164 Attorney Street, heretofore Three Amigo Auto Repair.

The story here is similar. As with its kin at 155, a seven-story building is also in the cards for 164. Approved plans on file with the DOB indicate 18,154 of residential square-footage allocated over 22 apartment units; 973 square-feet of the ground level is designated for commercial usage. Newman Design is the architect of record on the project.

Each floor sports four dwellings, plus an “accessory outdoor recreational” area for tenants only. (Pool, anyone?) The new building will also have bike storage in the basement and private parking for its residents, further evidenced by the “curb cut” application on file with the DOB.

Demolition of the one-story warehouse at 164 Attorney kickstarted in April, albeit without the proper permits. This infraction immediately led the DOB to issue a stop-work order, a directive that was partially rescinded two weeks ago. Which means it’s half-steam ahead from here.
