Heads up, Berry Street residents: you’re about to get a whole lot of new (and very wealthy) neighbors.
The folks over at BuzzBuzzHome are reporting that plans are officially underway to convert a 53,430 square foot warehouse at 60 Berry Street/103 N. 10th Street into a sizable 5-story, 39-unit apartment building. 42,900 square feet of the building will be used for residential space while the remaining 10,530 will be put aside for commercial use.
Nataliya Donskoy of ND Architecture has signed on to design the building and the Barak/Blackburn Team at Corcoran has exclusive rights to start leasing the apartments starting in Spring 2014. The property, purchased for a cool $5 million in November 2011 by North 11 Associates LLC, will cost an estimated $2.5 million to build.
The building will be conveniently located less than a block from Brooklyn Brewery, one block from the Wythe Hotel, roughly five blocks from the Bedford Ave. L train stop and a hop and a skip from McCarren Park.
Here’s hoping we’ll be friends with someone who ends up living there.
