Kushner Companies has sold off its stakes in two of its biggest Brooklyn properties, apparently in a move to raise cash for its embattled business.
The owners of this century-old corner brick townhouse, a couple in their 30s, had been living in a series of dark, claustrophobic spaces where the masonry structure was badly sagging. It cried out for a sweeping gut renovation.
Just a few more days and Brooklynites will finally be able to access more waterfront green space in Williamsburg. Domino Park, stretching from South 5th to Grand Street, is scheduled to open to the public on June 10.
After a decade of living in a lower duplex with two rental units above, these homeowners decided it was time to take over more of their townhouse. So they called on architect Alexandra Barker of Gowanus-based Barker Freeman Design Office to create a triplex for their family of four, plus a garden rental.
In Park Slope, this three-bedroom co-op needs some work but is rich with original details and decently sized. The unit has lovely woodwork and some delightful built-ins not to mention a wood-burning fireplace. While outside the historic district, the home at 361 4th Street is on a quaint, brownstone-lined block.
