Sometimes, developers like to start from scratch, demolishing older buildings or constructing condos on empty lots. Often times, however, old warehouses, churches, factories, etc., are left standing and converted into condos. Brooklyn currently has several conversions underway. Here are four of our favorites:
72 Poplar Street
The condos at 72 Poplar Streets in Brooklyn Heights are housed in a former police precinct. The 14-unit condominium building will have units ranging in size from two-, three and four-bedrooms, and are priced between $1.6 million and $5.8 million. The five-story building will boast amenities such as a fitness center, lounge, lobby cold storage, parking and a landscaped rear courtyard.
81 Ten Eyck Street
81 Ten Eyck Street, aka 74 Maujer Street, aka 187 Leonard Street, is a condo conversion in Williamsburg. Formerly a church, the multi-addressed building is being converted into 40 units. 81 Ten Eyck Street is undergoing a partial demolition to make room for the condos. Amenities at 81 Ten Eyck Street will include a common recreation area, 20 bicycle parking spots and a rooftop terrace.
177 Montague Street
The landmarked Brooklyn Trust Company Building at 177 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights is being converted into condos. The Italian High Renaissance style building will feature 12 condos with generous, loft- and townhouse-like layouts, ranging in size from three to five bedrooms. Building amenities and features include a doorman, lounge, music practice room, state-of-the-art gym, roof terrace with barbeque grill, oversized laundry room and a pet spa.
167 North 6th Street
167 North 6th Street is another church being converted into condos in Williamsburg. The St. Vincent de Paul church, which recently saw its rectory converted to rentals, will be undergo a condo conversion, resulting in 92 condos. The 1869 building has been vacant since 2005. As 167 North 6th Street is still in the early stages of development, no word has yet been made on what sort of features and amenities the building will have, aside from a prime North Williamsburg location.
