Avery Hall Investments and co-developer OTL Enterprises are forging ahead with the development of pair of understated five-story condominium buildings at 161-163 Columbia Street in Cobble Hill‘s Columbia Street Waterfront District. The team picked up the lots in 2014 through a unique deal with the nonprofit Carroll Gardens Association where proceeds of the sale would be used to preserve below-market rate rents for 28 units on the street and possibly develop 70 more affordable units in nearby Red Hook.

113A Columbia Street, modern

The best thing about shiny new modern townhouses? They can be really fun. Take this townhouse at 113A Columbia Street, along the Columbia Street Waterfront in Brooklyn, for example. It’s a new-construction home, built in 2010. And over five stories you get lots of unique, fun custom details that really make this house one of a kind. The design, most of all, is kid friendly, with a rock-climbing wall making for one of the coolest kid’s rooms ever.

25 Carroll Street, Columbia Street waterfront, condo

It feels rare to find a cool listing that’s under $1 million in New York City these days. But here’s a one-bedroom condo at 25 Carroll Street, in the Columbia Street Waterfront District of Brooklyn, that’s asking $850,000. You’ll find the quaint, quiet neighborhood just west of Carroll Gardens and just north of Red Hook. It’s not the easiest place to get to, as there’s no direct subway access, but the seclusion is part of its charm. There are also amazing views of lower Manhattan from here, which you can enjoy from this condo that is now on the market.

It’s not a shocker that some Brooklyn neighborhoods are outselling their Manhattan counterparts. What’s a bit of a surprise is that the Columbia Street Waterfront District, a quirky 22-block enclave wedged between Red Hook and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, is one of them.

Until recently, Columbia Street was known as a far-flung and largely forgotten strip that fell victim to Robert Moses’s highway expansion project—the BQE—which, when built on a below-ground slice of Hicks Street in 1957, severed the area from the rest of Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill, breaking up what was then “South Brooklyn” into distinct neighborhoods.
