A one-story home in Williamsburg will be demolished to make way for a five-story apartment building, according to recently filed building records.

Permits show plans for a 50 foot tall building spanning more than 12,400 square feet at 124 Withers St., the current site of a one story home and basement building with a total height of 20 feet.

The new building would hold a total of 15 apartments, with the ground floor consisting of eight enclosed parking spaces and a lobby. There would be four units on floors two through four, with the top floor holding three units.

The building would include an elevator, and a recreation space on the roof.

The property owners are listed as Miriam and Francis Rufrano, but they have recently sold the property to another purchaser, according to John Colonna, attorney to the Rufranos.

Property records also show that the parking lot next door with with an address of 122 Withers St. was also owned by the Rufranos, which could mean the new development will incorporate the parking lot.

Demolition permits for the current building, built in 1910, were filed late July.

While their search proved fruitless, the term “4/20” stuck, eventually becoming synonymous with cannabis culture and a rallying point for enthusiasts worldwide.
