Haussmann Development announced that it has closed on a $38.5 million construction loan for 827 Sterling Place in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. The seven-story project will feature 76 units of critically needed rental housing, including 23 affordable homes financed through the former 421-a tax abatement program. The new building will also have a parking garage and a full complement of resident amenities.

The total development cost of the project is $55 million. Kriss Capital is Haussmann’s development partner, and the project is being financed by Urban Standard Capital. The building was designed by Isaac & Stern Architects.

“827 Sterling builds on our recent success in Harlem and our strategy of providing much-needed housing in neighborhoods throughout New York City,” said Josef Goodman, Principal of Haussmann Development. “We are facing a housing crisis, and we will not be able to address that issue without robust development of all types in every corner of our city. There’s a scarcity of new, high-quality rental housing in central Crown Heights and we look forward to providing 76 new homes for New Yorkers in one of its best neighborhoods.”

“Crown Heights is an amazing community with a wonderful history, and we are proud to be a part of this neighborhood’s bright future,” said Jake Sokol, Head of Acquisitions and Capital Markets at Haussmann Development. “We look forward to developing quality, diverse housing at 827 Sterling and continuing our growth as one of the premiere housing developers in New York City.”

827 Sterling will include studios, one and two-bedroom apartments. Demolition and abatement work has already taken place at the site, and the final project will be completed by the summer of 2025. Resident amenities will include a fitness center, resident lounge, kid’s room, bike storage, roof deck and on-site parking. The project is located within walking distance to two major transit options, the Nostrand Avenue 2/3/4 Subway station and the Nostrand Avenue Long Island Railroad station. 827 Sterling is also just a few blocks away from the world-renowned Brooklyn Children’s Museum.

The start of construction at 827 Sterling Place is Haussmann’s Brooklyn project and comes on the heels of four project openings in Central Harlem, including the six-story, 27-unit Park Row Harlem at 2750 & 2754 Frederick Douglas Blvd, the Duke, an eight-story, 28-unit rental building at 521 West 134th Street; and the Count, an eight story, 27-unit building at 168 West 136th Street.

Founded in 2018, Haussmann is targeting sites for new construction that can accommodate residential bulk, including a mix of both affordable and market rate projects. Although a relative newcomer to New York City’s development industry, Haussmann is poised to break through with a growing track record and strong institutional backing.
