Long-Delayed Brooklyn Apartments Nearly Ready to Lease

Nearly a decade in the works, 247 North Seventh, a new-construction apartment property in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, will soon commence leasing.

New York—Nearly a decade in the works, 247 North Seventh, a new-construction apartment property in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, will soon commence leasing. The property consists of two seven-story buildings, with a total of 169 units; aptsandlofts.com, a New York real estate brokerage, has been retained as its leasing and marketing agent.

Plans for a residential building at the site were originally unveiled in 2006. Since then, the project stalled and the site has changed hands three times, mostly recently being owned by Adam America, which proceeded with development.

247 North Seventh’s two buildings are between Roebling and Havemeyer Sts., and are connected by a landscaped 13,000 square-foot inner garden. Designed by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects, the building’s textured façade features exposed concrete, complemented with oversized windows composed of geometric window panels. According to the architects, the façade is inspired by the waters of the East River.

Common amenities include a recreational lounge equipped with a flat screen TV, gaming console and billiards; fitness center; a pet spa; and the aforementioned urban courtyard garden. The two roof decks are outfitted with barbecue and seating areas. Additional amenities include a 24-hour doorman, attended parking garage, bike room and storage facility.

The property features a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments designed by Tersigni Palachek, with some units offering private terraces and balconies. Units boast white oak flooring, open layouts, large windows that allow copious natural lighting, and a washer/dryer in each unit. Pricing starts at $2,575 for a studio, $3,350 for a one-bedroom and $4,500 for a two-bedroom. Penthouses start at $6,700.
