The New York Times on Living in Clinton Hill

clinton-hill-3-070313

The Times published a “Living In” piece on Clinton Hill yesterday, with all the details about recent changes in the neighborhood and why it’s appealing: great brownstones, commercial growth on Myrtle Avenue, Pratt’s role in changing the neighborhood, and rising prices due to limited inventory. The Times reports, via a broker at CORE, that “town house sales have ranged from $900,000 to $3,000,000 in the last year… with ‘the large majority’ from $1,900,000 to $2,500,000. New condos or conversions like 91 Grand are selling for $725 to $750 a square foot.”

The juciest bit of news from the piece, however, concerns development to come. Here are the details on the residential build planned for the Associated Supermarket on Myrtle: two buildings, seven and eight stories tall, with 240 rentals, 20 percent of them below market rate. The complex will still include retail space and, as previously reported, the Associated will come back. The project will be developed by Silverstone Property Group. Also, it’s expected that ground will be broken by next year on the public plaza planned for Myrtle from Hall to Emerson. The Public Design Commission approved the plans this spring.
