Crown Heights Condo Trades for More Than $1,000 a Square Foot


A one-bedroom condo resale in a relatively new construction building in Crown Heights has gone for more than $1,000 a square foot, quite a high price for these parts and possibly a record for a condo sale in the neighborhood. The for-sale-by-owner apartment, Unit 3C at 823 Classon Avenue, closed August 15 for $675,000, almost double what it sold for in 2011 ($350,000).

The 611-square-foot apartment has a balcony and a parking spot, and the building has a roof deck and gym. The open house was well attended, and there were multiple offers in the 670s, according to a reader (not the owner) who tipped us off to the sale. The building was completed in 2010.
