Distillery Burlock & Barrel planned for Brooklyn; apartments designed for Southbank

by: David Cawton Associate Editor

A liquor distillery is in the works for the Brooklyn area, and more apartments could be coming to the Southbank.

Both seek conceptual approval from the Downtown Development Review Board, who will review the projects Thursday.

On the Downtown Northbank, BAM Investments, the developer for Burlock & Barrel, is seeking conceptual review from the Downtown Development Review Board.

The concept would join the budding Brooklyn neighborhood by converting an existing building, at 417 Magnolia St., into a distillery.

Plans call for the existing building, that faces Unity Plaza, to be split into two sections.

A 3,500-square-foot space would house the distillery, and a 3,400-square-foot area would be used for a point-of-sale and tasting room.

According to the architect, Mike Kleinschmidt with Design Cooperative, current zoning requires space for point of sale for any distillery.

The applicant listed on the application is Alexandria Klempf of BAM Investments, comprising Forking Amazing Restaurants and other commercial projects.

The group is responsible for several restaurants around Jacksonville, including Bistro Aix, Ovinte and Cowford Chophouse, now under development at Bay and Ocean streets.

Apartments on Southbank

On the Downtown Southbank, Catalyst Development Partners of Atlanta, is seeking conceptual approval from the Downtown Development Review Board.

The development, San Marco Apartments, would be at 1444 Home St.

Plans show a four-story, 143-unit rental property facing Home Street, with additional frontage on Kipp Avenue.

According to architectural firm Fisher Koppenhafer, plans include a three-story parking garage with 214 spaces behind the apartment building facing Louisa Street.

Proposed amenities include two private outdoor courtyards, a pool, summer kitchen and fire pit. Plans also show a fitness center and clubhouse.
