Last year, the Times published the first full rendering for the Carlyle Group and Flank’s 20-story condo-hotel under construction at 265 State Street, on the corner of Smith Street in Boerum Hill. The attractive brick and glass facade has yet to emerge, but prolific photographer Tectonic took some shots of the five stories of concrete and steel that have risen on the former parking lot.
Sales launched a few weeks after the Times piece, with asking prices ranging from $800,000 for a one-bedroom to $4.25 million for five-bedroom units. The development will top out at 210 feet and hold 128 apartments spread across 213,181 square feet of residential space.
The first floor will hold retail, residential and hotel lobbies, and a restaurant, and parking for 40 cars will take up the second floor. The third through sixth floors will be hotel rooms, and condos will begin on the seventh floor.
The Boerum will also boast a full slate of amenities, including a lounge, library, outdoor kitchen, and several terraces on the 15th floor, in addition to kids’ art classes staffed by the Children’s Museum for the Arts.
Flank is handling the facade and the interiors, and the exterior incorporates modern touches while referencing Boerum Hill’s turn-of-the-century brick townhouses. The closest comparison might be the Morris Adjmi-designed condos planned at 472 Atlantic Avenue, which starkly contrast against projects like the 60-unit rental at 267 Pacific Street.
Clearly the design has struck a chord with buyers, because 102 units are already in contract, according to StreetEasy.
