Site up, Construction Starts at 160 Imlay


A full site is up and construction has started on the condo conversion of 160 Imlay in Red Hook. The broker has also changed, from Town to Douglas Elliman. Sales, which were originally planned to start in January, are set to launch in July, agent Patty Larocco of Douglas Elliman told us.

The new website has new and more finely detailed renderings. In fact, they are so detailed we can make out a Louis Poulsen Artichoke light, Norman Cherner chairs and paintings by Jean Michel Basquiat and Donald Baechler in the living room.

There is also tons of descriptive detail about the design, which is by Aldo Andreoli of AA Studio. Some of the details include exposed cast-in-place concrete that was part of the original building and ceiling heights of 12 to 16 feet. Floors are wide plank European white oak. The white matte lacquer kitchens were designed by Aldo Andreoli and Italian manufacturer Dada Molteni. All appliances are by Miele. The windows are triple paned and designed to maximize the views, which look extraordinary.

Pricing is not yet available. Construction is supposed to wrap in 2016. Click through to the jump for more interior renderings. What do you think of it?

  • What protection is there that a development couldn’t or wouldn’t be built between the building and the water?

    • I’m not sure if there’s any prohibition on building near the water in a flood zone, but it doesn’t matter in this case because the building already exists – it’s the huge New York Dock Company building.

  • I was curious about the possibility of blocking the beautiful view. If a building can be built between the existing dock co. building and the water these would be significantly less valuable.

    • Oh I see what you mean. There’s still a huge commercial shipyard pier between the 160 Imlay and the water. It still seems quite active, so the city would have to sell that land for anything to be built there.
