Inside the Renovation at 71 Irving Place


We ventured inside 71 Irving Place, the formerly rundown Clinton Hill multi-family which suffered from a facade collapse before a renovation started. The buyers, the Big Brooklyn Rehab Company, are in the midst of a total gut — the building was in a sorry state when they picked it up for $750,000 last year. There is an owner’s duplex as well as three three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments. Each apartment has its own washer/dryer and there will also be a roof deck. The renovation will wrap up in about two months and then they plan to put the entire building on the market for about $2.5 million.
