An Inside Look At Future Condo Site: 172-174 Montague

In February, BHB bid a final farewell to Brooklyn Heights’ long-lived Eammon’s In Brooklyn and the Hallmark store next door, as demo began on the buildings at 172-174 Montague Street.

We were able to catch a glance inside the now-leveled grounds earlier this month as the gates opened momentarily, revealing the future site of the planned highrise condo development that will replace the now-decimated humble two-story building. The 8,150-square-foot property sold in June 2012 for $12 million.

The building has a C5-2/DB zoning designation, giving it air rights of up to 60,000 square feet, since it does not fall within the Brooklyn Heights Landmark District and is not subject to its 50-foot height limit. (CT)

    Is that the right square footage? That sounds like a large house rather than a high rise.

    How have renderings not been released for this yet?

    A highrise here would have a square footage of 250 to 350,000 square feet.
    I assume the project is financed privately and in conformance with zoning, so no renderings need be made public until the owner decides to start marketing the units.
