Construction is not yet finished, but a listing is up for one of a row of new-construction town houses in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The ask: $1,875,000. The phenomenon of building new townhouses started in prime brownstone neighborhoods close to Manhattan and now is spreading outward through the borough.
As Curbed noted last week, the marketing identifies the neighborhood as “Heights Park,” and that is also the name of the row. The developer is Residential Development Group.
The facades strike a balance (or a compromise?) between modern and traditional. Each one will have three units, including an owner’s triplex that includes an underground “finished basement,” the ground floor and part of the first floor. This floor plan is more typically seen in condos, not townhouses. An owner would likely get more space — or a grander space — for the money in a traditional row house, but the rental income is likely to be higher with these.
What do you think of the design and the price?
