I had the pleasure of visiting Cobble Hill Towers, built in 1879- built originally to house the workers at the port of Brooklyn, this is a gorgeous red and iron facade.
Really a striking set of buildings that goes along Hicks, which is along the Brooklyn Queens Expressway.
Of course, back in 1879, you’ll notice that the BQE didn’t exist.
Hence, the dilapidated opportunity for this developer to build something new and interesting inside.
In the spirit of keeping these shorter than 500 words- apparently this is your attention span, dear readers- I’ll give my review:
Finishes are a B.
Not amazing, not terrible.
They are exactly what they should be at this price point, for units which are in walk-up buildings along the highway.
The stairs in each building are black stone- really interesting- and at $600 per square foot, not a band asking price for a condominium in Brooklyn.
They are around the corner from PS29- which again, something I cannot advertise as a broker if were the broker- but it’s a great selling feature.
I think this will mostly appeal to a younger demographic- and ultimately this will continue to make Cobble Hill a terrific place to be in Brooklyn.
I’ll end by saying it’s worth a trip- there are many units which don’t face the BQE- and that’s what Citi Windows are made for anyway- this is already a big success – 55 of 185 sold!
A few last things- the ceiling heights are a little low, but the light and air are really there in the interior and lovely gardens for the property- and there is peace and quiet walking from the F train- and much going on all around the area.
