Owners of a large parcel on 24th Street (291-301, between Fourth & Fifth) are "awaiting proposals."
The properties make up a 120' x 100' R6B development site.
Recent real estate development in the area has brought an influx of luxury condominium apartments and strong retail into a residential area that was mainly made up of 1- and 2-family homes. Residential rents for new construction buildings in Greenwood Heights are projected at $55/SF and the lack of condo inventory create a surge in condo pricing over the past year with recent pricing reaching above the $950-$1,050/SF mark, and still trending upward.
This site is directly across the street from an area that is zoned M1-1D for 4 blocks. The unobstructed view from this vantage point on the hill would be a big benefit on the long term value of high end condo or apartment development. A well-designed building with lots of glass, balconies with great light and air, etc., would have a commanding view of Sunset Park, Greenwood Heights, and the Bay.
Included here is the Triangle Preserves Co. Building (see The Jelly Factory).
