This attractive building at 99 Gold Street in the Vinegar Hill section of Brooklyn was converted to a condominium from a toy factory in 2007 by HK Management, of which Harry Kotowitz is a principal, and then to rentals.

The conversion was designed by Robert Scarano and is notable for its angled balconies.

Andres Escobar & Associates was the interior designer.

The 6-story building, which is also known as 240-248 Front Street, has 88 apartments.

Bottom Line

About five blocks away from the East River, this low-rise building is highlighted by its many angled balconies with inset angled windows and angled entrance marquee.

Description

It has a four-step-up entrance under an angled marquee.

Amenities

The building has a roof deck, a fitness center, a 24-hour attended lobby, an entrance marquee, a bicycle room, some private storage areas, on-site parking and an indoor basketball court.

In addition, it has half a basketball court in its boiler room with a glassed-in viewing area and a fitness center nearby.  It is one of several buildings to offer basketball as an amenity.  Some of the others include the Atelier at 635 West 42nd Street, the Element at 555 West 59th Street and Downtown by Philippe Stark on Broad Street.

Apartments

The apartments have high ceilings, open kitchens with expresso-colored oak veneer and glass cabinetry, Bosch stainless steel cooktop, oven and dishwasher and marble countertops. The apartments also have Brazilian Massaranduba hardwood floors and washer and dryer hookups.

The G line units are two-bedroom apartments with long entry foyers that lead to a 19-foot-long living/dining room and an open, pass-through kitchen.
