Extra, extra: A Brooklyn Heights condo conversion of the former Brooklyn Daily Eagle headquarters has kicked off a soft sales launch with a teaser site.
The Heights at 30 Henry Street, developed by Fortis Property Group, has five full-floor units designed by BKSK Architects. Pricing ranges from $3.39 million for a three-bedroom, 2,418-square-foot unit to $4.95 million for a 2,861-square-foot apartment. All condos will have keyed elevator access to the automated underground parking garage. Construction is set to wrap up by late summer 2013.
Fortis bought the development site in April for $3.5 million, according to public records.
“The legend of brownstone Brooklyn is very appealing to people and this property has that aesthetic,” Corcoran Group’s Deborah Rieders, who is marketing the property, told The Real Deal. “They could have done multiple smaller units or a couple of townhouses, but as much as people love the charm of brownstones, they don’t necessarily always love the stairs. This gave us a unique opportunity to emulate the big spaces of the townhouses but do it horizontally rather than vertically.”
