Broken Angel Condo Conversion to Launch Sales Next Month


The Broken Angel condo development now has a teaser site and is prepping to launch sales next month, because the state’s attorney general recently approved its offering plan, according to developer and architect Alex Barrett. The former tenement at 4-8 Downing Street in Clinton Hill, once one of Brooklyn’s most unusual landmarks, now bears little trace of former owner and artist Arthur Wood’s fantastical creation — other than a drawing of an angel, a reference to the building’s past, in a new mural on the construction fence.

At 4 Downing, partitions are framed, and workers are installing windows, basic plumbing, electrical and sprinklers. Eventually, the four-story building will house eight condos, according to alteration permits. Next door at 8 Downing, they’re about to start pouring the concrete foundation for a four-story, two-unit building.

Barrett bought the property for $4,100,000 in January. Click through to see photos of the construction progress so far.
