A seven-story building is set to welcome 76 new apartments to Crown Heights, including 23 affordable units. The project will rise at 827 Sterling Place and is being designed by Isaac & Stern Architects. 827 Sterling will include studios, one-, and two-bedroom apartments. Demolition and abatement work has already taken place at the site and the final project is expected to debut in summer 2025.
“We are facing a housing crisis, and we will not be able to address that issue without robust development of all types in every corner of our city,” said Josef Goodman, principal of Haussmann Development. “There’s a scarcity of new, high-quality rental housing in central Crown Heights and we look forward to providing 76 new homes for New Yorkers in one of its best neighborhoods.”
Amenities will include a fitness center, resident lounge, kid’s room, bike storage, roof deck and on-site parking. The project is located within walking distance to the Nostrand Avenue 2/3/4 Subway station and the Nostrand Avenue Long Island Railroad station.
827 Sterling Place is Haussmann’s first Brooklyn project follows four recent project openings in Harlem, including the six-story, 27-unit Park Row Harlem at 2750 & 2754 Frederick Douglas Blvd; the Duke, an eight-story, 28-unit rental building at 521 West 134th Street; and the Count, an eight story, 27-unit building at 168 West 136th Street. The development company has closed on a $38.5 million construction loan with Urban Standard Capital to complete the $55 million project.
