Mapping Brooklyn's New Townhouse Development Boom

View as Map

Over the past year, the Brooklyn townhouse market reached new levels of hotness, and developers, realizing buyers' insatiable desire to own one of these coveted pieces of real estate, started eschewing multi-family buildings for multi-house developments. From historic Brooklyn Heights to hispter-ific Williamsburg, new townhouse developments are popping up all over the place. So in an attempt to track the mini building boom, we've mapped out the borough's many new townhouse projects, from the just-announced to the nearly-complete. Know of one that we missed? Let us know in the comments or tipline, and we'll add it to the map.

1. 295 Hicks Street

295 Hicks Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

A parking lot in the Brooklyn Heights historic district will soon host three four-story townhouses designed by Nikolai Katz Architect. Plans were just filed with the Department of Buildings at the beginning of February, and the project needs Landmarks approval before work can begin. The developer is SDS Procida, who also did On Prospect Park.

2. 2 Strong Place

On Strong Place, three new townhouses are expected to hit the market this spring (though they already flirted with pricing). Designed by CWB Architects, two of the houses will have five bedrooms while the third will have six. They'll likely be priced between $4M and $5M.

3. Townhouses of Cobble Hill

Plans for the nine houses at 110 to 126 Congress Street were revealed less than a year ago, and only two of the homes are still available. Designed by Adjmi & Andreoli, the houses vary in size from three- to five-bedrooms and were priced from $3.65M to $4.2M. Anyone know the status of construction? The developer's website says they will be ready for occupancy in "late summer 2014."

4. 449-453 Degraw Street

Developer H Holding Group is currently constructing four new brick houses on Degraw Street. Corcoran's marketing site says they'll be available in fall 2014. The four-story houses will measure 3,800-square-feet each, and they will feature three-bedrooms, a fireplace, and backyard.

9 Townhouses began late last year; according to StreetEasy, five of the houses have closed, which means they are now occupied. Two others are in contract, while two, including the largest corner building, No. 309, remain on the market. Designed by Rogers Marvel Architects, all of the houses are 4,000-square-feet or larger, and have private back yards and terraces.

6. Dumbo Townhouses

Brooklyn, NY 11201

Before construction of the development even began, four out of five of Dumbo's "first townhouses" were already spoken for. Each has four-bedrooms in 3,049 to 3,358-square-feet of space, and prices started at $4.1 million. The most expensive entered contract after being listed for $4.95 million, and the final house will likely be priced even higher, as it sits on a larger corner lot.

7. Henry Street Townhouses

The houses on Henry Street next to the Amity Street Horror have been in the works for awhile, and they first came to market for $4.3M a piece while still under construction in late 2012. Then last year, the prices were upped. That said, it's unclear if the houses are now finished as the listings, which still say "in contract," have renderings, not real photos.

8. 321-325 Pacific Street

325 Pacific Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Bluerock Real Estate filed plans for five single-family houses at 321-325 Pacific Street last June, but no work has started. According to the Department of Buildings website, the plans were withdrawn earlier this month. We've reach out for more information. Originally, the developer said the houses would be between 3,300-3,400-square-feet and consist of brick and brownstone.

In addition to 32 condos, the Sackett Union development also created 11 single- and two-family townhomes. Previous reports noted that the seven houses on Sackett Street would be ready for occupancy at the beginning of this year, while the remaining four on Union Street would be complete by the end of 2014. PR reps for the development tell us that all 11 homes are ready for occupancy, and just two remain on the market. StreetEasy currently shows five in contract and one available.

10. Williamsburg Townhomes

Brooklyn, NY 11211

Most of the new townhouse developments are clustered in the Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens area, but last year, 12 new homes debuted in Williamsburg. They all have stoops to encourage "hanging out on stoops," and they all have "unfenced paved front yards, creating a 200-foot-long common space with benches and planters for residents." Currently, seven of the houses are in contract, one has a contract out, and three remain on the market. The remaining three each ask $2.38 million.

11. Carlton Row

Five new townhouses rose on Carlton Avenue between Dekalb and Willoughby (225-233 Carlton Avenue) in Fort Greene. Each is a two-family house with a four- or five-bedroom owner's triplex over a two-bedroom garden rental. The development has been rather quiet, but perhaps that's because a construction accident at the site in 2012 killed a worker.

12. 330-332 Bond Street

332 Bond Street
Brooklyn, NY 11231

Two ground-up townhouses have been on the market in Carroll Gardens since last year. They were originally marketed together, as one two-family development for $7 million, but they are now on the market separately, for $2.875 million each. Each is 20-feet wide, has six bedrooms, and outdoor space on every level, including a garden and rooftop deck.
