Last we heard of the King and Sullivan Townhomes, a project bringing 22 luxury townhouses to Red Hook, 12 of them had sold for an average price of $2.7 million only one week after hitting the market. Six months after the sales rush, construction at the site is gaining traction.
Located at 109 to 125 King Street and 72 to 84 Sullivan Street, foundation work is well underway, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. The article offers a look through the construction fence: "The concrete foundations of several of the houses were rising out of the earth. Massive mounds of dug-up earth were piled all over the place."
The developer, Sanba Partners, is working with Patty LaRocco of Douglas Elliman on sales. When the four-bedroom townhouses hit the market last fall with prices upward of $2.6 million, there was some doubt whether the transit-starved neighborhood could command those prices. But the homes in contract range in price from $2.55 to $2.75 million, according to the Eagle, with one townhouse at 113A King Street currently listed for $2.875 million.
The townhouses were designed by the firm AA Studio (who is in charge of the larger development 160 Imlay Street, also in the neighborhood); each include driveways and private outdoor space. Once construction wraps there will be five different facades on display. The materials were inspired by Brooklyn architecture and include brick, terra cotta, and corten steel, which makes up the Barclays Center facade.
