An American-themed model unit at Kirkman Lofts
Halstead Property Development Marketing announced that 55 percent of the units at Kirkman Lofts, a new residential condominium in DUMBO, Brooklyn, are now in contract.
The development launched sales in April, and construction is expected to be complete late this fall.
Receipt of the TCO and move-ins are anticipated to begin at the end of 2011.
"We are extremely pleased that Kirkman Lofts has exceeded the 50% sold benchmark so quickly," said Stephen G. Kliegerman, president of Halstead Property Development Marketing.
"To date, every unit at Kirkman Lofts have been sold for its full asking price and prices have increased three times since sales launched."
Located at 37 Bridge Street between Water and Plymouth Streets, Kirkman Lofts was converted into condominiums after housing Kirkman & Sons, a soap factory for which the building was originally built in 1915.
The building is comprised of 45 condominium residences in a mix of studios, one-, two, three, and four-bedroom homes. Remaining units range in size from approximately 861 to 2,803 s/f and in price from $625,000 to $2.4 million.
In homage to the original industrial era, the original steel silos now serve as entrances to each apartment, creating hallways unlike any other in New York City and are also used as a design accent throughout the residences.
Other historic accents include oversized industrial-inspired windows, reclaimed wood accents that are installed in common areas and throughout the homes, and the simple brick facade which blends in with the neighboring buildings.
All apartments include solid hardwood oak flooring and washers and dryers housed in tiled closets. Kitchens feature locally sourced millwork by Avalon Custom Woodworking in Brooklyn.
QuietRock soundproofing drywall was used to construct walls between apartments and at corridors, creating extra-quiet residences.
Amenities at Kirkman Lofts include a common roof terrace with sweeping Manhattan Bridge views, a common terrace on the fifth floor, and bungalows available for sale.
There's also a video doorman and concierge service, fitness room, bicycle and private storage bins and refrigerated storage.
