The Real Deal

The 10 most valuable Brooklyn condo filings accepted in 2016

A converted Williamsburg warehouse that was once the base of operations for a prominent bourbon distributor was the priciest condominium filing approved by the New York Attorney General’s Office in 2016.
Kushner Companies is turning the massive Cass Gilbert-designed Austin Nichols House at 184 Kent Avenue into luxury condos, and planning to make a tidy profit while they’re at it. The accepted sellout price of $427.3 million makes it the borough’s most expensive condo filing of 2016, according to analysis by The Real Deal.
Brooklyn is a hive of development activity right now, and sales prices in the borough hit record levels in the third quarter of 2016. The median price of condos reached $812,008 and new development condo prices climbed 27 percent year-over-year to $778,452.
