This pale orange-brick, 5-story building at 689 Myrtle Avenue between Bedford Avenue and Spencer Street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn was built in 1947 as the Cocoline Chocolate Factory.

The building was converted to 45 condominium apartments in 2006.

The G subway is two blocks away and the Barclays Center is nearby.

Bottom Line

An attractive former chocolate factory in Bedford Avenue-Stuyvesant near the Barclays Center with many angled duplex units.
