The residential conversion happening at the beautiful landmarked Offerman Building on the Fulton Street Mall remains a mystery to us. Owner Al Laboz has planned this conversion for many, many years. Interior demolition began the summer of 2011 with advertisements for the commercial space going up in early 2012. Signage went up along Duffield Street saying that the project should be finished by this summer, but no one returned our calls for more information. The interior, which is in terrible shape, still looks bad, at least on the ground floor level. You can check out a picture after the jump. Does anybody have information on the timeline, or the state of construction, over here?

There’s a whimsical screen, stained glass, eight very nice late 19th-century mantels, and what looks like two original windows. Most buyers will probably want to update, although the bathrooms and kitchens […]
This loft at 50 Bridge Street in Dumbo has been on the market since the summer for $699,000. While the 980-square-foot pad is not as fancy as most apartments in Dumbo these days, it is priced relatively inexpensively and is in move-in condition. So what’s the hold-up? Could be that the low-ceiling mezzanine that rings […]
