Sales Come With Small Discounts at Fort Greene's Verdi on Adelphi

New, 6 comments

Fort Greene's Gene Kaufman-designed Verdi on Adelphi has come in for some abuse for everything from its appearance (even earning an "ugliest building in Brooklyn" nomination) to its pricing to its BQE-abutting location. But a few brave buyers (perhaps inspired by a round of choppage) chose to look beyond all the trash talk and go into contract at the condo. Their deals, which went to contract way back in the brighter days of early 2008, finally closed late last year, and now we have our first look at what units in Verdi are actually selling for. The discounts so far are smallish, between 2 and 6 percent off the most recent list prices. What are those list prices? The six units still on the market range from $299,250 to $599,000.
Let's take a look at what the building's three buyers actually paid:

1) #2A: 1BR, 1BA, 533 square feet, closed for $260,000, a 2.4 percent discount, in late November.
2) #1B: 1BR, 1.5BA, 937 square feet, sold for $440,000, a 5.3 percent chop, in December.
3) #3B: 1BR, 1BA, 570 square feet, closed for $282,000, a 5.8 percent discount, in December.

Two more one-bedroom units, last listed for $299,250 and $313,500, are in contract, according to StreetEasy.
