Sales have launched for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties’ new luxury condominium at 262 55th St. in Sunset Park.

The condo is somewhat unusual in several ways. The building is four stories tall, not much taller than the wooden-frame houses, row houses and other low-rise structures surrounding it. Located on the west side of the Gowanus Expressway, away from the residential hubs of Sunset Park, it’s a short walk from NYU Langone Hospital and the Brooklyn Army Terminal.

It’s also developed by an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway, the well-known conglomerate holding company led by famed investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties, according to its website, is also handling sales of condo units in DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Clinton Hill, Park Slope, Williamsburg and elsewhere in Brooklyn. 

The five-story, five-residence ground-up condominium comprises one one-bedroom/one-and-a-half bath residence; one two-bedroom/two-bath residence; and three three-bedroom/two-bath full-floor residences ranging in size from 700 to 1,250 square feet, respectively.  

Pricing for the newly available residences range from $1,399,000 to $2,000,000. Each home has private outdoor balconies or terraces and direct elevator access, offering a convenience typically found in larger high-end properties buildings, according to the firm.

“262 55th Street was designed with today’s buyers in mind offering larger homes with high-end finishes and amenities typically found in larger luxury buildings in a boutique setting,” said Zarrella Robinson of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York, the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the building. 

Designed by Evan Chan Architect, 262 55th St. offers large open floorplans; in-unit laundry; an expansive resident’s lounge and a 1,000-square-foot shared roof deck with views of Brooklyn and New York Harbor looking toward Manhattan.  The building’s brick façade features wood slat accents.  Floor-to-ceiling windows and connected outdoor spaces provide future residents with an abundance of natural light.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is “among the few organizations entrusted to use the world-renowned Berkshire Hathaway name,” according to a statement by the firm. The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices global network has more than 50,000 affiliated independent sales associates and 1,500 offices throughout the U.S. and abroad.
