It’s time to bring readers up to speed with the latest condo closings at Pierhouse, the high-profile  residential and hotel complex in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

For the past year, we’ve been tracking home sales at Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital Group’s development, which is just steps away from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s NYC Ferry landing.

The condos are located in two buildings whose addresses are 90 Furman St. and 130 Furman St. And 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is at 60 Furman St.

The development raised a ruckus with Brooklyn Heights residents. The subject of the controversy was whether Pierhouse partly blocks the protected view plane between the famed Promenade and the Brooklyn Bridge.

So. The top-dollar Pierhouse deal that has closed since we last wrote about the development is a $5,909,261 condo purchase made by Sandeep Ramesh and Sheila Chithran Ramesh, city Finance Department records indicate.

* Agam Jain and Jennifer Jain paid $3.61 million for a Pierhouse condo, Finance Department records show.

* Magdalena Paragas and Pablo Paragas bought a Pierhouse condo for $1,479,873, Finance Department records indicate.

These public records also show that a couple weeks after their Pierhouse purchase, they sold their condo unit at Brooklyn Heights building 55 Poplar St. for $1.215 million.


Plus Brooklyn Heights Historic District home sales

It’s always interesting to check up on home sales in the nearby Brooklyn Heights Historic District as well. As readers of course know, Pierhouse is located outside the confines of the neighborhood’s landmarked area — and just beyond the boundaries of the Fulton Ferry Historic District.

* The 37 Sidney Place Real Property Trust with Jay B. Ringel as trustee paid $7 million for 37 Sidney Place, Finance Department records show. Ringel is a real estate lawyer.

Clay Lancaster’s book “Old Brooklyn Heights: New York’s First Suburb” says the Greek Revival-style brick rowhouse was built in the 1840s.

* An LLC with Jill Levy Reiter as authorized signatory purchased 109 Columbia Heights for $4.9 million in an estate sale, Finance Department records indicate. She’s a real estate attorney.

A mortgage obtained by the purchaser says the property is the borrower’s second home.

It’s a carriage house.  

* According to Finance Department records, an LLC with Ronit Muszkatblit as authorized signatory bought 160 State St. for $4.375 million in an estate sale. Lancaster’s book says this Greek Revival-style rowhouse was built in the 1840s.

* Michael Keefe bought 44 Henry St. for $3.55 million through an LLC, Finance Department records show.

The seller, an LLC with Kenneth Landon as sole member, had paid $1.92 million for the property in 2012, the records show.  

Keefe is a property investor who owns nearby 72 Henry St. through a different LLC.

Popular restaurant Henry’s End is the commercial tenant in this four-story brick rowhouse.   

* A townhouse unit at 72 Poplar St. sold for $3.5 million; the purchaser was an LLC with Oren Goldhaber as authorized signatory, Finance Department records show. He’s a real estate lawyer.

The townhouse is adjacent to the former 84th Precinct station house, which was constructed in 1912.

The Daten Group did a condo conversion of the Italian Renaissance Revival-style precinct building a few years ago.
