Brookland Capital’s latest condo development, Bergen House at 954 Bergen Street in Crown Heights, has launched sales. Prices start at $355,000 for a 407-square-foot studio and go up to $459,000 for a 617-square-foot one-bedroom.

No two-bedrooms have been listed yet, although we found some floor plans for the larger units. The 36-unit, six-story building was designed by Brookland Capital favorite Issac and Stern. Construction began earlier this year.

Interiors feature white oak floors, bright red kitchen cabinets, black granite countertops, glass subway-tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances. The design choices are definitely bold. What do you think of the look and the pricing? Click through to see more interiors and floor plans.

Brookland Capital’s Clinton Hill condo project has hit the market, and prices are well under a million bucks. The 18-unit building has studios, one- and two-bedrooms priced from $399,000 to $594,000, marketing reps from Aptsandlofts told us.

The building, at 531 Vanderbilt Avenue, is close to Atlantic Avenue, and as Curbed pointed out, the apartments are relatively small, sized from 411 to 564 square feet. Some units will have private terraces or ground-floor outdoor space, and interiors feature herringbone oak floors, granite countertops, radiant heated floors in the bathrooms and deep soaking tubs.

Issac and Stern designed the seven-story project, which broke ground earlier this year. Click through for more photos.

We like the simple cabinetry and the herringbone floors. What do you think of the design, location and pricing?

New York YIMBY has posted a new rendering of the Brookland Capital buildings under construction at 735 and 737 Bergen Street, between Washington and Underhill in Prospect Heights. Brookland head Boaz Gilad asked architects Issac and Stern to re-think the project’s design, after Curbed compared the original designs to “an establishing shot in a movie about a dystopian police-state” back in April.


Brookland Capital has installed windows and finished most of the facade on this apartment building on Bergen Street near Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights. The six-story, 36-unit development at 954 Bergen Street has risen quickly since construction started in March. Brookland’s usual architects, Issac and Stern, are designing. When it’s finished, it’ll look something like this. What do you think of it so far?

Update: Boaz Gilad tells us that this building is a condo scheduled to open in September.

This rendering on the fence at 954 Bergen Street in Crown Heights shows the future of yet another Boaz Gilad development that recently started construction. Brookland Capital’s go-to architects, Issac and Stern, filed plans last year for a six-story, 38-unit building with 19 enclosed parking spaces on the first floor.

The DOB approved new building permits in late January, and two stories of the frame have risen so far between Bedford and Franklin Avenues. Construction photo after the jump. What do you think of the design?

On Monday, Brookland Capital filed a new building application for a seven-story apartment building on the site of this two-story brick townhouse. Plans at 807 Washington, located between Lincoln Place and Eastern Parkway, call for seven units spread across 10,381 square feet.

As with many Brookland developments, the architects are Issac and Stern. Under an LLC, Brookland Capital bought the 25-by-100-foot property on January 27 for $1,750,000, public records show (a thread on Brooklynian noted Brookland had purchased it). Demolition permits haven’t been filed for the townhouse, which was built around 1910, according to city records. GMAP


Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital, which has cut a swathe through Brooklyn from Prospect Heights to Flatbush with more than 40 active projects, is now expanding to East Williamsburg. The firm is in contract to purchase a former condensed milk factory at 850 Metropolitan Avenue, which it plans to convert into a 36-unit condo building, The Real Deal reported.

Brookland will pay just under $10,000,000 for the 28,000-square-foot factory, which currently houses knitwear manufacturer Rags Knitwear. “It’s got a great industrial feel,” the paper quoted Gilad as saying of the building.

The 28,000-square-foot property is currently home to a knitwear manufacturer called Rags Knitwear. Other Brookland Capital projects include 531 Vanderbilt Avenue, 735-737 Bergen Street, 691 Marcy Avenue and 1255 Bushwick Avenue, among others.

Since we can’t go anywhere in parts of Brooklyn without tripping over a Boaz Gilad property, we discovered this rendering for a seven-story building going up on a Brookland Capital-owned site at 531 Vanderbilt Avenue, just north of Atlantic in Clinton Hill. The 18-unit building will be 11,946 residential square feet, according to new building permits issued Wednesday. Issac and Stern Architects are designing the building, which will have storage rooms, laundry and parking for 19 bikes.

Gilad purchased two vacant lots, 531 and 533 Vanderbilt, for $1,200,000 last March, public records indicate. This site is across the street from the big office building at 470 Vanderbilt and up the street from the 12-story mixed-use development planned for its parking lot. Also, we’ve included a picture of the construction site after the jump, and it looks like workers are putting in the foundation. The design doesn’t look terribly exciting, but what do you think?


The Lutheran church at 1255 Bushwick Avenue that had been destined for this awkward residential conversion will now become a new seven-story building. Issac & Stern Architects are designing the 32-unit building with 21,897 square feet of residential space, according to new building applications filed last week. The building will also have 16 underground sparking spaces. St. Marks Evangelical Lutheran Church sold the property to Brookland Capital’s Boaz Gilad in June for $1,950,000, according to public records. No demolition permits have been filed for the two-story church or its adjacent school building.
