In nearby Cobble Hill, River Park, a new development with five buildings, recently sold the neighborhood’s five most expensive new development properties. One of them — a four-bedroom, 4½-bath, 3,346-square-foot penthouse — is in contract at $7.5 million.
As towers join church spires in piercing the sky, there is a sense that the rest of Brooklyn is encroaching on Cobble Hill. But the neighborhood remains lively as well as lyrical, with its handsome townhouse rows and insistent greenery.
Ms. Breedlove stressed the importance of preserving the sidewalk culture. "It used to be a stoop culture, but people don't necessarily sit on stoops anymore," she said. "They do walk on the sidewalk and talk to each other every day."
The Henry Street sale was part of the Fortis Group development 5 River Park, which is under construction where the Long Island College Hospital complex once stood.
Working from home is becoming a common reality for many people, but it's hard to imagine a way for a musician to do so without bothering at least a few neighbors.
It is getting harder for developers to come up with new ideas for amenities to attract residents to luxury buildings. From roof top decks to spas, everything's been done (or so it seems). Instead of trying to find something completely unique, the latest trend is for developers to take what is already out there to a much more granular level -- to a place no man has gone before, you might say?
Façade installation is underway at 5 River Park, part of the second phase in a three-phase, seven-building master plan from developer Fortis Property Group for the site of the former Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
It has been said in the field of architecture that there are no straight lines in nature.
A park in Cobble Hill will be taking this concept to the max, and local residents are thrilled their suggestions for a design based on curves are coming to fruition.
5 River Park, the first new building in this Brooklyn megaproject, has over 20,000 square feet of amenities for only 25 residences, ensuring that you will rarely be fighting for time at their immersive music room and performance stage. Or maybe building neighbor Norah Jones could stop by for a quick lesson. River Park, located near the waterfront in Cobble Hill, is also close to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and surrounded by live music venues.
It's officially summer in the city and while you may be making plans for summer camp or daycare, these luxury developments are introducing kids amenities to show love for their little residents, just as much as they do for their older residents.
Where Cobble Hill meets Brooklyn Heights, River Park emerges as Brooklyn's newest luxury neighborhood, encompassing an area of nearly 1-million-square-feet.
Fortis Property Group launches sales of 25-unit 5 River Park; Designed by Romines; part of $1 billion River Park plan
Fortis Property Group, LLC has launched the second phase of the River Park master plan, a $1 billion transformation of the former Long Island College Hospital site, one of the largest transformations since the unveiling of Hudson Yards.
Fortis Property Group has launched sales for 5 River Park, the first property to arrive on the heels of the billion-dollar River Park redevelopment plan in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. The new property offers 25 condominiums ranging in size from one to four bedrooms.
The building is one of five components that make up the Fortis Property Group- developed project and is the first new construction to rise within the development. Other River Park components are a condo conversion of the Polhemus Building, a series of eight townhouses that will neighbor the Polhemus Building and be known as the Polhemus Townhouses; a 15-story condo building named 1 River Park with 48 units; and a 475-foot-tall building at 2 River Park that will be the tallest within the project.
With the windows open at the Cobble Hill House, the sound of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, which the new condo building overlooks, is — delicately put — a constant roar.
But close the triple-glazed, parlor-style windows and the condo units at 78 Amity Street, at the corner of Hicks Street, transform into quiet, light-filled spacious homes with fantastic East River views, just beyond the expressway.
Long Park College Hospital's large-scale luxury apartment redevelopment project "River Park" is one of the most popular destinations in Cobble Hill. The project started the new official website, the first building. Construction has begun and it is expected to provide a wide range of high-end residential options for the community.
Jonathan Landau and Joel Kestenbaum’s Fortis Property Group is looking to sell 25 apartments at 5 River Park for a total of $78.9 million, an offering plan filed with the New York State Attorney General’s office shows. The under-construction building in Cobble Hill, formerly known as 347 Henry Street, was part of the state-owned Long Island College Hospital complex.
