70 Henry Street is a rare new condo development in Brooklyn Heights situated at the corner of Henry an Orange streets. Co-developed by Mettle Property Group which is headed by Gerard Longo, and JMH Development of which Jason Halpern is a founding partner, the boutique offering hosts five grandly-scaled residences and ground-floor retail.
Standing just five stories high, the project is within the Brooklyn Heights Historic District (the city's first ever). Its design by Morris Adjmi Architects had to win the hearts of neighbors and the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) alike to move forward with construction.

The project's ground floor incorporates historic walls dating back to 1895. The absorbed one-floor building was previously used as a butcher shop, pharmacy and most recently, the Brooklyn Heights Cinema. The LPC requested that a slightly lighter shade of brick be used on the the project's upper floors to differentiate between the old and new portions. Additionally, a long-obscured cast-iron column on the ground floor is being integrated into the design of the forthcoming retail space.
70 Henry is set for delivery in early 2019 and three spreads remain on the market with prices starting from $4.45M. Residence C is a full-floor, 4-bed/4.5-bath apartment covering the entire third floor. Like its sister spreads, the home has direct elevator access, nine-foot-high ceilings, 7"-wide plank aged oak floors, and large multi-paned windows that are in character with its charming Brooklyn Heights neighborhood. This 2,698-square-foot spread is listed for $4.45 million.

Two floors up is the project's crowning penthouse apartment. Encompassing the entire fifth floor in addition to a private roof deck above, the home has four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 2,697 ft² or interior space. One exits the elevator into a private foyer that leads to an open kitchen, 25-foot-long living and dining room overlooking tree-lined Orange Street.

Last but not least, is the rare maisonette unit which will be privately entered from Orange Street. The ground level of the 3,454-square-foot triplex has the living, dining and kitchen spaces as well as the upper level of a large garden. The garden level, one flight down, has a spacious family/entertainment room and the garden's lower level. The second floor of the home has the unit's three bedrooms and a very large walk-in closet that can serve as a private office. This hard-to-come-by residence is listed for $4.85 million.
Residents of 70 Henry will be greeted with an eclectic lobby design featuring stone floors, bronze elevator trim and a virtual doorman for privacy and convenience. The building is pet-friendly and there is tenant storage available. The building is a short commute to lower Manhattan which for ambitious residents can be walked to via the nearby Brooklyn Bridge. During less favorable weather, the A and C lines can be accessed one block away at the High Street Station and the 2 and 3 lines can be taken at Clark Street, a two-minute walk south.
