Fort Greene Development Nearly Sells Out in Five Weeks

Updated on October 25, 2010

Only one home remains in Solis, a new condominium development, after it nearly selling out in five weeks, according to Halstead Property Development Marketing.

Located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the six-story, nine-unit boutique development sold eight units for $675,000 to $1.22 million within a five week period. The apartments ranged in size from 969 to 1,800 square feet, according to developer Ping C. Moy.

“We are very pleased with the rapid sales of homes at Solis,” said Shelley Wasserman, vice president and associate broker of Halstead Brooklyn LLC. “Solis pairs excellent prices with top of the line finishes and amenities, creating exceptional value for buyers.”

Solis features beautifully designed homes with intricate details, such as custom built-in bookcases and sun-drenched spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows. Amenities include private storage rooms, video intercom systems, a common rooftop garden with skyline views and a wood-paneled lobby.

“Solis was perfect for us, it was small enough to feel like a brownstone where we could know all of our neighbors, but also had all the amenities and space of a new building,” said buyer Chandra Silver, one of the first to move in.

The 2,045-square-foot, 3 bedroom 2 and a half bath classic modern triplex left in the building features a double-height ceiling in the living and dining area, an open floor plan and a private yard. Priced at $1.25 million the triplex is furnished with ebonized bamboo flooring, MoMA collection pendant lighting and self-closing European style cabinetry. The bathrooms are complete with radiant-heated floors, imported Italian tiles, Kohler fixtures and Corian countertops.

The unit is available for immediate occupancy at the 174 Clermont Avenue address and is situated near an Olmstead-designed park and an abundance of restaurants, cafes, boutique shops and historic brownstones. Solis is also just a ten-minute walk from the Farmer’s Market, Brooklyn Flea, Pratt University and the BAM cultural district.

      Yep, there will always be a market for premium properties. A shrinking market, perhaps, but a market anyhow.
