Man, Lefferts Place is having a big week. Construction started up at 76-90 Lefferts Place, the forever-empty lot between Classon and Grand Avenues. Earlier this month the DOB issued a new building permit at 76 Lefferts for a four-story, three-family building. As for the other six townhouses planned for the lot, the DOB approved building applications this January but have not yet issued new building permits. Each townhouse will be four stories and three units. This lot went to market in March, as far as we can tell from public records it never sold. The listing came with a rendering for a potential development here, but it’s unclear if that’s what’s going up now. The architect on record is Grasso Menziuso.

This seems like such a cute house at such a good price for Brooklyn. We like Wallabout and we like the renovation, which features a steel and reclaimed wood staircase, teak hardwood floors, Carrera marble counters in the kitchen, and lacquer cabinets. All the mechanicals are new, as is the siding, windows, roof, and skylights. The […]
The layout of this new listing at 25 Plaza Street in Park Slope is a little unusual. It’s listed as a studio but it’s really more of a small one-bedroom, depending on how you’d plan to use the space. The 500-square-foot pad is on the second floor of the 1941 doorman building. The wood floors […]
This two-bedroom floor-through in Windsor Terrace has some lovely prewar details. The ornate fretwork screen is very pretty, and there are some nice moldings on the walls and around the windows, along with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen and bathroom both seem serviceable and clean, though maybe not exactly modern. However, the kitchen looks quite […]
