TAURUS’ PROJECT – THE STANDISH IN BROOKLYN RELEASED RENDERING
NewsMay 10, 2016
The 12-story Standish Hotel in Brooklyn Heights is getting a makeover, and YIMBY has a rendering of the revamped property at 169-171 Columbia Heights.
The 1903 Beaux Arts building has been a hotel, housing for the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and now it’s becoming condos. The ornate structure once held 122 rooms, but the new and improved version will have only 32 apartments. Condos in the 78,000-square-foot building will range from one- to five-bedrooms. Pricing isn’t available yet, because the Attorney General hasn’t approved an offering plan for the conversion yet.
DDG is designing the conversion, and the Tribeca-based firm is co-developing the project with Westbrook Partners, who picked up the old hotel for $60 million in 2014. The Witnesses purchased the property in1988 and used it as housing until 2007, when they sold the property to Taurus Ivestment Holdings for $50 million.
The Standish sits between Clark and Pierrepont streets, and residents on the upper floors will have attractive views of the East River, Lower Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The renovation will also install a laundry list of luxury amenities, including a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, children’s playroom, private storage, and bike storage.
Sales are scheduled to launch this summer, and the developers will also unveil two model units in the building this summer.
