It’s been a long time since there’s been any news from 160 Imlay Street, the old New York Dock Co. building in Red Hook that’s in the midsts of a condo conversion. There was some doubt about the project’s viability for a while there, as construction appeared to stall and DOB violations were lobbed at the site (most of which have been dismissed.) But the Brooklyn Eagle reports that the conversion is all systems go, and move-ins should be happening for certain parts of the building starting in October.
Anyone whose walked by the site between Pioneer and Verona streets recently may have noticed its new white shroud. Douglas Elliman broker Patty LaRocco told the Eagle that the building is protecting workers inside from the neighborhood’s fierce winds and temperatures as they chip away at the building’s interiors. As of now, more than half of the window glass is in place for the 12-foot by 16.5-foot windows that run throughout the building. The next thing that will be put into place is the elevators.
The building hit the market in 2014, with condos priced from about $1.28 million. The listed apartments went into contract with a rapidity that was unprecedented for the neighborhood. Fourteen of the building’s 70 apartments have yet to come to market, and will be put on the market this spring.
Those yet-to-be-released apartments include six penthouses ranging from 2,800 square feet to 4,000 square feet, for which buyers will be able to choose customizable finishes. The penthouses will also come with indoor parking. The only remaining non-penthouse apartments are on the building’s east side, without water views, and range from 973 square feet to 1,750 square feet.
