Quinlan Development Group has broken ground on its newest project at 230 Classon Avenue, on the corner of Willoughby Avenue in Clinton Hill.
Located on a parcel owned by St. Mary’s Church, the 17-story, 143,000 s/f mixed-income rental will feature 138 one- and two-bedroom apartments, all with private balconies, and some with yards. In addition, 30 percent of the apartments will be offered as affordable income rentals.
Designed by DXA Studio, plans include 8,700 s/f of outdoor space with features such as a private street-level park, landscaped outdoor space on the third floor, and a furnished roof deck offering 360 degree views.
Approximately 4,200 s/f has been allocated to indoor amenities, including a study lounge/business center, bike room, tenant storage areas, dog run, fitness center, and recreational lounge with pool table, television, and entertainment kitchen. In addition, there will be on-site parking with 98 spaces.
“Despite the challenges of the last year, our belief in Brooklyn and the rest of New York City remains strong,” said Tyler Wilkins, partner of Quinlan Development. “It is during turbulent times when we become most active. We are confident in New York City’s resiliency and persistent need for new housing.”
The lender for the project is CIT Bank, with Hines Realty Income Fund providing a mezzanine loan. Gideon Gil and Dan O’Brien from Cushman & Wakefield provided advisory services throughout the acquisition and financing processes. The project is expected to be brought to market in spring 2023.
