The Heights, 30 Henry Street: Review and Ratings

between Middagh Street & Cranberry Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 30 Henry Street by Carter Horsley

This modest but pleasant five-story, red-brick building at 30 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights occupies the former site of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper.

It was developed by the Fortis Property Group of which Jonathan J. Landau is president.

BKSK was the architect for the building, which is known as The Heights and was completed with 5 units in 2014. Its buildings include 25 Bond Street and 688 Broadway in Manhattan.

One of the apartments was acquired by Lena Dunham, a playwright.

Bottom Line

A nice and conservative, low-rise building with only 5 units, key-access elevators, a garage with automated parking and apartments with very sumptuous layouts overlooking a very pleasant courtyard with a fountain.


The building, which is at the corner of Henry and Middagh streets, was criticized in an article in the Wall Street Journal by Judy Stanton, the executive director of the Brooklyn Heights Association as being “too tame.”

It has a one-story rusticated stone beneath a red-brick façade and a small cornice.  Several of its large windows have Juliet balconies.


The building has a garage and an automated parking system. 

It also has key-accessed elevators, storage rooms, a virtual doorman and a superintendent.


Apartments have gas fireplaces and central air-conditioning.

They have very large living rooms that open onto large dining rooms.
