The blocks near the Barclays Center are filled with new construction, from townhouses to skyscrapers. Today, construction chronicler Tectonic brings YIMBY an update on The Hendrik, a modestly sized, brick-clad condo project that’s taking shape at the corner of Third Avenue and Pacific Street in Boerum Hill.
The coal-fired brick, colored by the natural mineral composition of the Danish clay, completed the look for his 33-unit Brooklyn condo project, The Hendrik, where prices range from about $1.7 million to $4.5 million.
“Not everybody wants to live in a townhouse,” said Hope Street Capital Partner Sha Dinour. “I live in a townhouse. You have to go up and down the stairs all the time. It’s hard. People love to live in a townhouse street. But not everybody loves to live in a townhouse.”
Blake Dinour, a sales agent at The Hendrik, a new upmarket development in Boerum Hill, said she believes the area has become more family-friendly in recent years. The condo’s 33 units range from $1.75 million for a two-bedroom to $2.9 million for a four-bedroom—and more than half will have private outdoor spaces of as much as 1,140 square feet. Ms. Dinour said she believes the large apartments are attracting families who would normally go for a townhouse, but want amenities. A number of the prospective buyers have been French.
The median price for a Boerum Hill condo was $1.42 million in March, StreetEasy shows, while the figure for townhouses hit $3.99 million.
