Hello Living is back in Brooklyn.

After years of developing luxury condos in Prospect Heights and Crown Heights, the brand-happy developer — founder Eli Karp favors bold, colorful designs and uniform building names — has revealed renderings for its latest residential building at 203 Sutter Avenue in Brownsville, first reported by New York YIMBY.

Named “Hello Sutter,” the seven-story building will have 52 luxury rentals and more than 10,000 square feet of commercial area spread across two spaces on the ground floor, according to the developer’s website and city records. The development is an alteration and will include part of the original building, a one-time settlement house that was last used as a school.

Current renderings designed by Vincent Martineau Architect show a building with three distinct looks mashed together: dark, glassy and modern on the corner, the original circa 1900 four stories of brick on one side, and Miami-style white stucco bedecked with balconies on the other.

The firm previously worked with Hello Living on their massive residential building at 1580 Nostrand Avenue — named, naturally, “Hello Nostrand” — that is currently under construction.

The former owner, Moses Gross, purchased the building for $2.2 million in 2014. After filing applications for permits to develop the site, with renderings designed by Karl Fischer, he sold the property to Eli Karp’s Hello Living in 2017 for $5.6 million.
