Renderings and Listings Appear for the Sackett Union


Finally, a rendering for the major Carroll Gardens condo/townhouse development along Court, Sackett, and Union! (Residents actually booed the renderings for the previous development planned here at a Community Board meeting… think this one’s better?) The website’s also live and condo units are on the market. The cheapest unit is a 1,128-square-foot two bedroom listed for $1,105,000. The priciest unit is a four-bedroom penthouse unit for $3,100,000. Streeteasy shows that sixteen units are already in contract, including the four-bedroom penthouse. The building itself comes with a roof terrace, fitness center, playroom, storage room and parking with select residences. Click through for the interior renderings.

  • They look great but this really reflects how out of control prices are in this neighborhood, almost 50% sold with a year until closing and only a few units priced under $1.5 million.

  • Prices are bubble level.
    Essentially $1000 a sq ft with monthly common charges of $1 per sq ft – and no mention of taxes but at these prices unless somehow get 421a (not likely unless they somehow put a shovel in the ground pre change) these are crazy expensive. And while I am sure they will be very nice, appointed beautifully and well built – they are still right on Court Street.

  • I’m very much in support of new development, but why does it always have to look WEIRD? There’s no symmetry or order in the facade. No classic materials. No graciousness. It’s like these architects are just trying to be as contrary as possible. This will stick out like a sore thumb on Court Street.

  • As someone who lives in a charming walk-up right on Court Street in Carroll Gardens, I don’t see the on-avenue location affecting price/value. Court Street in Carroll Gardens is actuallly quite peaceful despite the fact it’s a commercial street. That said, I think these apartments lack any charm and are quite hideous.

    I will never understand why people want to live in these post-modern boxes, but they keep selling, so I guess they do. This would make sense in midtown Manhattan, but doesn’t seem like the type of housing stock someone moving to Carroll Gardens would want. I have more hope for the new development planned for the old Brooklyn Eagle site in the North Heights.

    • What most fail to see is that the individuals buying here or in most pricey new buildings for that matter are not willing or ready to own a townhouse, with it’s many benefits and faults. These are the only viable alternatives for families that preffer an “easier” home ownership experience. Agree design and location on court is not appealing although this is the only non landmarked central location where you can build such a monster.

      • The location itself I have no problem with. Court Street south of this location is pretty charming. It’s more that the building and apartments are ugly. It seems to me that there are plenty of condo-conversion brownstones that could satisfy the desire for an “easier” home experience at similar price points. Other options would be the new development I mentioned at the Brooklyn Eagle site or the new townhouses down State Street. Even 360 Smith looks pretty nice from the outside and is in keeping with the ‘hood.

        Personally I’d rather own a creaky old house and restore it.

    • Court Street peaceful? You must not live anywhere near that frat bar Buschenshank . . .

  • It should be mentioned that TD Bank is in the process of securing that corner retail space. I guess that’s good for the residents upstairs, as there will be little noise after bank hours, but it’ll mean this already dead block will continue to be…

  • Rogers and Marvel are the architects. The same group that designed 14 Townhouses and the new townhouses coming to State Street.

  • I think this design looks great; I love the brownstone look facing material. There is nothing wrong with a few contemporary buildings set within an older neighborhood, I think that it makes for a more engaging cityscape. the interiors look good too, very open and clean.

    This a a great location, I guess you could call it Central Carroll Gardens; its close to everything good in the area, and that would command top price. but it definitely will bring in a different, wealthier demographic.

  • By the way, another bank!? there are already so many banks in the area, it’s turning Court Street into Wall Street. How about a supermarket?

    • Union Market is very close to this location and likely would be the type of supermarket that would go into a high-end building like this anyway. Therefore the only alternative to a bank would be a drug store.

  • Went to see the model unit, this looks like a sweet development. Location is very good on that part of court st, and the cobble hill Carroll Gardens area has a dearth of nice condos and probably will indefinitely given the zoning issues. Half the units gone in constr speaks for itself, a lot of the units had outdoor space and parking so not exactly 1000 per ft

  • The floor plans are good, and the amenities are like nothing else in the area. I saw the model unit, it was very nice. Prices look good compared to current new developments in Brooklyn Heights

  • No there isn’t anything wrong with modern in the middle of historic but there are many things wrong with that hideous thing. It would have been easy to do a lot better.

    Whenever I’ve been walking past that bar it’s so loud you can’t have a conversation on the sidewalk. And that’s during the day. More garbage.

  • Totally unique family-sized spaces for a neighborhood full of no-service $1.5-2.5mm duplex (walk-up) brownstone chop-ups. As an active real estate seeker in the hood, I see these type of low-rise developments as a great option vs. spending the same amount of money (and 2 years) on a gut renovating some 100 year old brownstone. A doorman, gym and parking may be a bit progressive for Carrol Gardens, but I’m sure the neighborhood can handle it.

  • Having lived in the neighborhood for 9 years the facade is much more in keeping with the neighborhood as far as the brownstone color. I think the previous developer had a black facade. To have such amenities is new for the area and obviously all of the above has been well received given the brisk pace of sales. Court Street in this area is pretty laid back but not as laid back as it used to be. The entrance is on Union Street anyway. I like the facade and I am glad they did not do one of those all glass buildings that would have been totally out of place. I just hope the remaining retail is charming and not a drugstore and that the townhouses are as nice as the other Rogers Marbel ones on State St.
