Tour The Nearly Complete Bank to Condo Conversion of Brooklyn Trust Company Building

New construction is flourishing in Brooklyn, but developers are also finding value in restoring and converting some of the borough’s historic gems. One such example is the Brooklyn Trust Company Building in Brooklyn Heights. The building’s developer, the Stahl Organization, has nearly completed its residential conversion.

The six-story building at the corner of Pierrepont and Clinton was constructed in 1913 and designed by York and Sawyer in the Italian High Renaissance style.

Barry Rice Architects has overseen the 12-unit condo conversion, fitting three and four bedroom residences into the former bank building. Units feature foyers, professional grade kitchens with custom cabinetry and rolling islands, bathroom floors with radiant heating, and walk-in closets.

Original details are preserved and integrated throughout the building, including several wood burning fireplaces, and windows integrated into corridors and units as feature elements.

The building also features extensive amenities, including a lounge with music studio, children’s playroom, teen room, gym, kitchen, and an outdoor roof terrace with a grill. The bank’s former cash vault, adjacent to the ground floor lobby, will become a storage room for bikes and strollers.

Completion is set for later this year, but sales of the units are already under way. The Brownstoner Marketplace has three and four bedroom units available.
