Review of 378 Baltic Street by Carter Horsley

This 11-story residential condominium at 378 Baltic Street in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn has a two-story base with a deeply set-back tower highlighted by two columns of alternating balconies.

The building has 36 apartments and was developed by Joe Chan and designed by Peter Himmelstein.

In an October 4, 2006 article in The New York Sun, David Lombino wrote that Mr. Chan was president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and wanted to "expand and refashion the borough's central business district."

"Mr. Chan, 35, has some powerful friends, including his old boss, deputy mayor Daniel Doctoroff, whom he served as a senior policy adviser. Previously, Mr. Chan was the director of real estate for the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce," the article said.

"'Who - beyond back offices of banks and insurance companies - are the next group to populate downtown Brooklyn?' Mr. Chan asked, the article continued, adding that "To set the stage, Mr. Chan promises a host of new initiatives to make transform the area into a more vibrant 24/7 environment, one of the signature goals of the Bloomberg administration's economic development strategy. That includes a creating a pedestrian friendly Flatbush Avenue, hiring a landscape architecture firm to create open space around the BAM cultural district, attracting a mixed-income housing project east of Flatbush Avenue, and connecting downtown to the low-rise brownstone neighborhoods to the south."
