Developers renewed permits for a seven-story, ten-unit mixed-use building at 210 Pacific Street, between Court Street and Boerum Place. Looks like the Department of Buildings is still processing said plans and as you can see above, no work has started up yet. These are the same plans approved for the lot back in 2008. Since then, the empty Cobble Hill land sold to a new developer for $2.8 million.
210 Pacific Street Lot Picked up by Developer [Brownstoner] GMAP


The sizable lot at 210 Pacific Street, between Court Street and Boerum Place, sold to a unidentified developer for $2.8 million. The DOB approved plans to build a seven story, ten unit building here a few years back. This lot is near the newish conversion at 216 Pacific (the Flavor Paper building), across the street from long-under-construction 215 Pacific Street, not to mention another another empty lot, and down the block from the new condo building 233 Pacific. In short, a block that has seen (and will continue to see) quite a lot of construction. GMAP

“This is not another hipster-Brooklyn movie,” says Williamsburg-based filmmaker Elisabeth Subrin of her narrative film A Woman, A Part, which tells the story of an actress who flees Los Angeles to squat in her old rent-stabilized Brooklyn apartment. Subrin is seeking funding for the film via Kickstarter; watch her campaign video, below.


The first of the Passive House condos at 210 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill went up for sale last month, and now the seven-story building is getting its windows. Both the teaser site and the construction fence proclaim, “The future of the City of Brooklyn begins here.”

While we’re not sure about that, the 10-unit building will include sustainable features like an electric car charging station, solar hot water heaters, triple-glazed windows, extensive insulation and energy recovery units. Designed by SBLM Architects and developed by Nava Companies, the building will be clad in custom brass tiles, according to the listing copy (you can see a closeup on the teaser site). We hope they don’t sizzle in the sun.

The development now has three listings online — two three-bedrooms and a four-bedroom — starting from $2,425,000. One asking $2,495,000 is already in contract.

Two condos at environmentally friendly new building 210 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill have hit the market, Curbed reported. The brass-clad building will have 10 units built to Passive House standards, as well as energy efficient appliances, a solar hot water system and an electric car charging station.

The two apartments listed right now are a 1,563-square-foot three-bedroom asking $2,495,000, and a 3,133-square-foot four-bedroom asking $5,250,000. Interior renderings show fairly typical upscale condos — big, open layouts, marble countertops, freestanding soaking tubs, white oak kitchen cabinets. Check out more interior renderings and an exterior rendering showing the facade’s irregular windows after the jump.

SBLM Architects designed the building, and Nava Companies is the developer.

The apartments are certainly large, but so are the price tags. What do you think of the finishes and prices?
