211 Schermerhorn Street (Alan Hill Design / Arc Media) 211 Schermerhorn Street (Alan Hill Design / Arc Media)
Classicism is alive and well in Morris Adjmi’s New York. Why toss 2,000 years of architectural refinement aside when antiquity’s elegant proportions and hearty materials feel just as right today? Adjmi’s latest design to surface is 211 Schermerhorn Street, a 14-story condo underway at the meeting of Boerum Hill and Downtown Brooklyn. The building will accommodate 48 one- to three-bedroom residences that will go on sale this fall.
Standing apart from the cacophony of competing designs rising in Downtown Brooklyn, 211 Schermerhorn will be dressed in a quiet uniform of handcrafted Petersen brick and generously-scaled casement-style windows. Rather than giving in to indulgent “look at me” designs, Adjmi informs his projects by finding the right note that harmonizes with the surrounding rhythm.

According to the press release, 211 Schermerhorn was inspired by the old-world charm and architecture of Boerum Hill. Though much of this block’s pre-war character has been lost to newer developments - 33 Bond Street is directly west and the Addison to the east - the classic tree- and brownstone-lined streets of Boerum Hill cover the blocks to the south.
The 75,000-square-foot project has been hatched by Oestreicher Properties and GPB Capital Holdings who purchased the site in 2016 for $30 million. There have been few sizeable condo offerings in the area, most notably the Boerum and the Nevins, and 211 Schermerhorn should help satiate demand. Pricing has yet to be revealed but units in the nearby Nevins are selling on an average of $1,400 a foot and closings at the Morris Adjmi-designed 465 Pacific Street have come in at a similar price point.
Common amenities will include a rooftop terrace, lounge and media room, fitness center, children’s playroom, bike storage and private storage available for purchase. The building is served by a plethora of transit options and rises atop the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station servicing the A, C and G trains. Residents can enjoy 10-minute commutes into Lower Manhattan and easy access to all of Brooklyn. Fulton Street and its City Point shopping center are two blocks north and Atlantic Avenue, a mom and pop mecca, is two blocks south.
