It has been one hot summer in Brooklyn Heights. First 281 Henry sells for $5 million, then 29 Grace Court goes for $5.25 mil, and 40 Willow Place just hit public records for $7.35 million. 40 Willow Place is a 45-foot-wide modernist home built in the 1960s. Throughout the years some details of the home were lost, but later owners restored the interior to its original glory in a top-to-bottom renovation. Last year, it was asking $7,500,000. Then Curbed noticed it was relisted this April for the same price. You can still see the Corcoran listing… what an amazing place. Looks like the owners are moving across the river from Manhattan. The Observer has a story on it too.

A new building application was filed last week for a five-story building at 331 Saratoga Avenue in Ocean Hill. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is listed as the owner on the permit. The vacant lot has been city-owned since the late ’70s, according to public records. The SLCE-designed development between Dean and Bergen streets will include 80 apartments […]
The Brooklyn Home Company broke ground recently on a four-unit condo building at 84 Congress Street in the Columbia Waterfront District. A joint venture with MESH Architectures, this project looks nothing like Brooklyn Home Company’s conversions in historic buildings we wrote about last week, as a rendering on the fence shows. Designed by Mesh Architecture, the 6,720-square-foot building […]
As we approach the May 1 deadline for Mayor de Blasio to present his plan for 200,000 units of affordable housing, housing advocates and preservationists worry that increasing the percentage of affordable housing in private developments will require outsize development in Brooklyn. Last week’s approval of Domino, which will have towers reaching up to 55 […]
