It’s been a while since we checked in on the Strong Place construction site, where three townhouses are slated rise. Work on the empty lot, situated at the corner of Strong Place and Kane Street in Cobble Hill, began this week and will last for the next few months. If all goes well, actual construction will start in April and last another 15 months. The project is designed by CWB Architects and developed by Brennan Realty Services. Here’s a rendering of what it will look like. You can read about developer Donald Brennan’s plans, and how he acquired the site right here. And here’s the interesting history of the site itself. The townhouses are not on the market right now.

This mid-19th century Italianate in Prospect Heights makes up in width (24 feet across) what it lacks in depth (40 28 feet). The double duplex is nicely renovated and has lots of cute old details, including arched entry doors, floors, marble mantels, a wood burning fireplace, tin ceilings and wedding cake plaster decorations. We’re guessing […]
We’ve featured a number of units in the old school building at 44 Cheever Place in Cobble Hill over the years and this one has to be the most tricked out of them all. The two-bedroom condo has double-height ceilings in the living room and a sleek, modern kitchen that looks like it belongs in […]
We love this five-bedroom, two-bath triplex in Park Slope, which is both beautiful and expensive. There aren’t any kitchen or bathroom photos, but the listing says it has a “well-appointed galley kitchen.” The double parlor, formal dining room and kitchen are all on the same floor.
