Sunset Park is already home to a number of prewar cooperatives and townhouses, but Brooklyn's boutique condo building boom has made its way here: Sales have just launched at 262 55th Street, a five-story condominium comprising a one-bedroom garden maisonette unit, a two-bedroom unit, and three full-floor three-bedroom units. The one-bedroom is priced at $1,399,999, and three-bedrooms start at $1,499,999. All units come with private outdoor space, and all are available for immediate occupancy.
262 55th Street was developed by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York, an affiliate of Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, and designed by Brooklyn-based firm Evan Chan Architect. The five-story building is distinguished at street level by its red brick facade and wood slat accents. Beneath the surface, underfloor soundproofing and two-inch closed cell spray foam insulation promise the ultimate in quiet in what's set to become a bustling location.

The sales launch comes at an exciting time for Sunset Park: On March 3, 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced an agreement to transform the city-owned South Brooklyn Marine Terminal into an offshore wind port facility. The terminal will become an interconnection site for the Empire 1 Wind Project, and heavy lift platforms will be built on the 39th Street Pier for wind turbine staging and installation. This is set to become one of the largest offshore wind port facilities in the nation, and instrumental in the city’s goals of 100 percent clean electricity by 2040 and carbon neutrality by 2050. Additionally, the New York City Economic Development Corporation has partnered with the community to support workforce training for offshore wind careers.

“This is a transformative moment for New York City and our clean energy future — a future of sustainable power, good-paying jobs, and climate justice.” — Mayor Eric Adams

Before the agreement was announced, the redevelopment of Industry City from manufacturing buildings to a robust community was instrumental in breathing new life into this section of South Brooklyn. An outdoor ice rink is currently open, and the Industry City website shows outdoor fitness classes taking place in warmer months. At any time of year, locals and visitors can enjoy an expansive food hall, live events like music performances and art classes, America’s first hatchet-throwing venue, and retail offerings from a number of eclectic designers.
A rezoning was proposed to allow for big-box retail, academic space, and still more uses for the Industry City campus. However, local activists raised concerns that this could lead to gentrification. When the rezoning fell apart in September 2020, The New York Times described it as “the biggest clash over development in the city since the collapse of the Amazon deal in Queens.” Nevertheless, things show no sign of slowing down — at the end of 2021, the New York Post announced that Industry City had leased a total of 800,000 square feet of office, light manufacturing, studio, and retail leases since the height of the pandemic.
Outside of Industry City, locals enjoy easy access to NYU Langone Hospital Brooklyn, the country’s first online-only Whole Foods, and green space like Greenwood Cemetery, Sunset Park, and Bush Terminal Park. Transportation options include the 53rd Street N/R/W, the Brooklyn Army Terminal ferry, and the B11 bus line.
