Here Are The Interior Renderings For The Poplar Precinct Condo Project In Brooklyn Heights

While we were digging the Finkmobile out of its Poplar Street ice palace earlier this week, the renderings of the former NYPD precinct at 72 Poplar were released. So are these designs fit for the “urban hipsters” the developers are targeting?

Curbed: 72 Poplar Street, the Brooklyn Heights police station that is being converted into a 14-unit condo building, launches sales this month and just released its first set of interior renderings, which show off some the apartments’ interiors as well as the building’s lobby. The Freyer Architects-designed units range in size from 1,424 to 3,368 square feet and are have asking prices between $1.6 million and around $6 million. Amenities include a gym, lounge, storage, and parking. With construction expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2014, residents are slated to begin moving in this summer. The principal of the developer, the Daten Group, told the Times in 2012 that the targets buyers are “urban hipsters starting families.”

Back in September, our Karl Junkersfeld filed this report on the project:

    Imagine the hipsters surprise when they find out their kids can’t get into the locally zoned PS8 because of overcrowding. No zoned family is guaranteed a Kindergarten admission anymore at PS8, the DOE central office doles out spots like they did with pre-k. (No more pre-k either at PS8…overcrowding.)

    The interiors are disappointing, but then the building was gutted down to the brick exterior walls, so no surprise.

    PS8 has not yet actually rejected a zoned child for Kindergarten although it’s possible in the future. More likely, 1BBP will be zoned out. That’s just conjecture though, whatever plans they have are top secret. 72 Poplar only has 14 units, so it’s not going to be the building that goes over the edge.

    The 2014-2015 year will be the first year with no PreK at PS8. It is also the first year of having to apply to a central office for K citywide. I suspect it will be handled like PreK was…a lottery with a limited number of spots based on available space. I wish only the best to all the families who spend so much to live in Bklyn Heights and feel they should be informed of such information.
