It’s been a little over four months since we checked in on the construction at 153 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights. Now, scaffolding removal is underway at the 19-story, 60-unit building between Clinton and Court streets. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo sent to YIMBY by prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are the developers. Navid Maqami’s S9 Architecture is responsible for the design.
When complete, the 185-foot-tall building will encompass 76,211 square feet, of which 71,746 square feet will be devoted to residential space. That works out to an average 1,195 square feet per unit, meaning condominiums are likely. They will start on the second floor with four units, two of which will have terraces, followed by four units each from the third through 13th floors and two units each from the 14th floor through the 19th floor.
Amenities listed in the Schedule A include a gym, laundry room, playroom, space for 31 bicycles, and a rooftop recreation space. Two retail spaces will be spread between the cellar and first floor, taking up a total 4,465 square feet.
Mass transit options for future residents include the Borough Hall stop on the 2 and 3 trains, the Borough Hall stop on the 4 and 5 trains, and the Court Street stop on the R train.
