Manhattan-based developer Quinlan Development Group purchased the warehouse at 259 Pacific Street, between Smith Street and Boerum Place, as well two adjacent vacant lots, and intends to build a new rental building. Tyler Wilkins of Quinlan says the plan is to demolish the warehouse sometime soon and hopefully get shovels in the ground within 5 months or so. The company is looking to develop a building with about 60 apartments, according to Wilkins, that’s seven stories high. Quinlan’s purchase of the three properties for $6.2 million was recently recorded in public records. The warehouse and vacant lots traded hands last year as part of a larger sale of properties on the block. Between Quinlan’s project, the possibility that work will finally start on an apartment building at Atlantic and Boerum, and the townhouses coming to State Street, there’s plenty of development to keep an eye on in Boerum Hill these days!
