Open House Party For 20 Henry Street, Brooklyn Heights

Just got back into town, and there's lots of email in our inbox. Halstead spokesperson Jill Feldman sent us this message about a party -- all are invited -- at the newly-opened sales office for 20 Henry Street:

You're invited to attend a special event to celebrate the just-opened sales office for 20 Henry, a newly converted and constructed luxury condominium in Brooklyn Heights.

This event will feature a live performance by Chris Washburn and The SYOTOS Band (an Afro Cuban and Latin Jazz band), along with a "winter whites" wine tastings from Brooklyn Heights favorite Michael Towne Liquors. All are welcome to attend (it's free and open to the public).

The party takes place Thursday, November 20, 6PM - 9PM at
114 Henry Street, Brooklyn Heights. Free, but RSVP required: erica@mediashoppr.com

Demolition of the courtyard at 20 Henry Street (Peaks Mason Mints/ “candy factory” building) -- once the site of artwork and landscaping -- is well underway.

Halstead says they have received more than 1,900 inquiries from potential buyers about the building since it began conversion and construction in early 2008. (The artists who once populated the former Mitchell-Lama were forced out in a big ugly controversy in 2003.)

The 38 newly restored and constructed residences range in price from $580,000 to $2,560,000 and are a mix of studios, one, two, three and four bedrooms. Many residences have ceilings of over 11 feet. Sherida E. Paulsen, principal of PKSB Architects, is the lead architect behind the conversion and new construction of 20 Henry.

For a full list of available units and floor plans, visit: www.20Henry.com, or www.halsteadpdm.com or call the Sales Center at 866-924-7120. Open houses will be held this weekend.

Correspondents chatter on Curbed about how these units will sell in this down market.

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, seven apartments sold over a month ago (including two penthouses).

The Brooklyn Heights Blog posts more about the history of 20 Henry and its planned amenities.
