The Brooklyn Heights Historic District was the first ever to be established by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and has made the neighborhood synonymous with beautiful brownstones. However, the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District was designated in 2011 to present a rather different type of architecture. In the years following the Civil War, the area around what is now Brooklyn Borough Hall became established as an office district as new commercial and civic buildings rose. These included the Temple Bar Building at 44 Court Street, which is widely regarded as architect George L. Morse’s finest work, and 32 Court Street, which was called “Brooklyn’s first real skyscraper.” However, starting in the 1930s, urban renewal projects led to the demolition of many of the historic commercial buildings.
It is in this setting, and down the street from the recently restored Temple Bar Building, that the 20-story 200 Montague Street has risen on the former site of a four-story bank building. Aurora Capital Associates and Midtown Equities developed the project, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission found the design by Beyer Blinder Belle to be well suited to the historic district upon approving it in May 2019. Leasing has launched with current availabilities from $3,318/month for studios, $4,338/month for one-bedrooms, and $6,738/month for two-beds. The prices are net effective to reflect one month free rent on a 13-month lease, and put the building roughly in line with neighborhood medians. According to CityRealty listings, these range from $3,000/month for studios to $7,350/month for two-bedrooms.

“200 Montague’s striking vertical silhouette is a contemporary interpretation of Brooklyn’s Historic Skyscraper District’s early 20th century architecture and contributes to the urban fabric of the surrounding neighborhood” — Richard Metsky, Partner, Beyer Blinder Belle

200 Montague Street is located across the street from Cadman Plaza Park, which is one of the urban renewal projects that transformed this section of Brooklyn Heights. It is also well situated near Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and many popular boutiques and bistros. The Borough Hall 2, 3, 4, and 5 and the Court Street R trains are only one stop outside of Manhattan, allowing for an easy commute.
