Presenting The Williamsburg Firehouse Lofts, a condo conversion like you’ve never seen before.
1196 Metropolitan Avenue was originally an active firehouse and home to Engine Company No. 206, otherwise known as The Brooklyn Gashouse Gang. After its closure in the late 1970’s, the building transformed into an underground music venue called the Metropolitan Social Club where live music and wild parties were known to ensue. Later on, in the 1980’s the firehouse was converted into artist lofts where many local artists called home for over 30 years.

Today, these six, unique, loft residences are available for sale for the first time ever!
Bursting with history, charm and emanating the spirit of Brooklyn, this quintessential conversion offers a truly once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of New York City history, and to make it your dream home. These vastly spacious homes with their open concept living areas offer endless opportunities to customize and create a completely unique space that is a true reflection of their owner, and suited for their unique way of life. Whether it’s a 12 person dining table, 15 foot book shelves, aerial yoga, or a place to park your vintage Vespa that you had in mind, 1196 Metropolitan has got you covered.
Jaw dropping, 16-foot barrel vaulted ceilings, and walls of beautiful exposed brick envelope each home.

Extra tall windows, many offering Brooklyn and Manhattan views, and large skylights let sunlight stream in all day long. While many original features have been preserved creating warmth, charm, and a sense of history throughout the building, the apartments are move in ready with renovated kitchens and bathrooms featuring modern cabinetry, fixtures and finishes, as well as new appliances. Brand new mini split systems have been installed throughout the apartments as well for efficient heating and cooling.

Two of the homes have private balconies and the penthouse apartments feature enormous private roof decks with expansive views. Ample bike storage is located in the enormous basement as well as two private storage rooms being offered for sale.

There is nothing cookie cutter about Loft 1B, an amazing one bedroom (the size of a 2 bedroom), with ample space for living, dining, office and more. The kitchen boasts endless cabinet space, a gas stove, microwave and a full sized stainless steel refrigerator.

Dripping with original exposed brick and featuring partial city views this home is truly one of a kind.

If you’ve ever passed by a NYC Firehouse and said to yourself "Wow, wouldn’t it be amazing to live in one of those?" Well, now that dream can become a reality for six lucky home owners. Located in East Williamsburg, about 10 minutes to the Grand Street L train, and the plethora of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars that this bustling part of Brooklyn is known for. Showings have commenced. Please call or email with questions or to set up an appointment to view.
