With over 14,000 residential units in Downtown Brooklyn’s development pipeline at the time of the sale, Team Cohen/Warren had to make sure this nearly shovel-ready site stood out in a congested market.


  • The team regularly followed up with ownership, making sure to stay on their radar and after completing the sale of a similar property nearby, made sure to call ownership to let them know of the activity happening in their area
  • After having 24 hours to turnaround a presentation and evaluation, ownership agreed to sign a listing agreement


  • The team repositioned the approved plans from a rental project to a condominium to capitalize on the scarce ‘for-sale’ inventory in the area
  • After doing a formal marketing process with the inclusion of a confidentiality agreement, a bis deadline was set and 11 offers were received
  • Developers Slate Property Group, in partnership with foreign investment firm, China Vanke, purchased the site for $50,000,000

TerraCRG’s recent transactions means another step forward for the booming residential market. With the Downtown Brooklyn renaissance market hitting on all cylinders, it’s no surprise to see another sound investment in the district’s future
