Full demolition permits have been filed for the four-story building at 192 Montague Street, also known as 200 Montague, in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. The 46,000 square-foot office building was built in 1960, and has a total of three units across the four floors. In 2007, Midtown Equities acquired 200 Montague from HSBC Bank. There is also a retail component at the ground level. James M. Patterson of Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.
Quay Tower is not like most of the new residential skyscrapers rising in Brooklyn. The project sits directly against the Brooklyn Heights waterfront, soaring 30 floors above the neighboring brownstone-filled streets, and features a glassy façade paired with brushed copper-hued metals that evoke the iron girders along Pier 6, nearby. Now, the building has now shattered a record for the entire borough, with its penthouse entering contract for $20 million, nearly $4 million over the previous record for a Brooklyn apartment set by actor Matt Damon.
Sales have officially launched for 67 Livingston, in Brooklyn Heights. Rising 29 stories, the tower has a slender profile that sits directly adjacent to the Court Chambers Building to the east, at the intersection of Livingston Street and Court Street. 22 full-floor units are included within the 50,000 square foot envelope, which is comprised of two-, three- and four-bedroom layouts. The property is being developed by Silverback Development, which has brought CetraRuddy and HTO Architect to help with interior finishes and design. Marketing is being led by Bold New York.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 14-story hotel at 186 Remsen Street in the Brooklyn Heights historic district of Brooklyn. Saint Louis-based HOK, the largest architecture firm in the US, will be responsible for the design. Located right across from Brooklyn Borough Hall, the site will have access to a plethora of transit options. Within just three to four blocks, guests can find the A, C, F, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains.
Past the historic Brownstones and occasional cobblestone roads in Brooklyn Heights, Quay Tower has found itself the perfect location, nestled between the BQE and the wildly popular Brooklyn Bridge Park. The location will guarantee future residents unfettered views of Downtown Manhattan, the rivers, and even burgeoning Downtown Brooklyn. The project is being developed by a joint venture between RAL Companies, Oliver’s Realty Group, and Vanke US, and today YIMBY has a look at the views across the Harbor from up top.
