This week the Landmarks Preservation Commission will consider the owner’s request to make significant alterations to a Brooklyn Heights row house facade.
166 Montague Street, aka the Franklin Trust Tower, is one of the most architecturally impressive buildings in Brooklyn Heights. The building was converted to condos back in 2008 just as the market was heading south so the sponsor ended up renting out a number of the units. This fifth-floor two-bedroom is one of them. While perfectly attractive and with nice amenities and fixtures, the interiors of the 1,218-square-foot pad are a bit of a disappointment to us compared to the exterior. Nonetheless, the location, light, views, pedigree, etc. all make this a pretty nice catch. Asking price is $1,499,000, up from $1,260,000 back in 2008. Sound about right?
