cropsey

The long-blighted structure at 2300 Cropsey Avenue, formerly a nursing home, will be demolished and replaced with a 24-story residential and office tower.

Located at 23rd Avenue, the 45,688-square-foot property was purchased by a group of Chinese investors late last year for $18.5 million. It’s long sat derelict and overgrown, and became a haven for illegal dumping and graffiti.

Currently the skeleton of a six-story building, it was once the facilities for Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation, which moved next door several years ago.

Documents filed with the Department of Buildings last week reveal plans for a 273-foot, 24-story building designed by Michael Kang.

YIMBY reports:

The nearly 350,000-square foot building at 2300 Cropsey will contain 170 apartments – we’re guessing condos – divided over 200,000 square of net residential space, for a roomy but modest unit size of almost 1,200 square feet. There will be 60,000 square feet of community facility space, likely marketed towards doctors, with 337 garage parking spaces and a surface lot that will hold 32 stalls.

It’s not clear when work will begin, but it should have better luck than previous plans on the property. Developer Alexander Gurevich proposed to build a similar blend of housing, office space and parking, but ended up defaulting on his $17 million loan, and the property went to the bank. Gurevich was banned from selling condos or co-op units in 2010.

That same year, 2300 Cropsey Avenue also earned the dubious distinction of holding the most violations from the Department of Buildings in Brooklyn.

Price: $1,200,000
Viewing: September 27, 1:30pm – 3:30pm
Location: 2152 73rd Street

Price: $1,099,000
Viewing: September 28, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 2467 West Street

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach

Location: 8778 21st Avenue
Description: This apartment is in a private home and, based on the pictures, it looks spacious. The rooms face the street and they all appear to be saturated in natural light.
Contact: Svetlana Borovskiy, High Class Realty, (718) 333-0700

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,499
Location: 8544 Bay Parkway
Description: This apartment is located in a private and it’s been renovated. The apartment is “shiny” but the realtor doesn’t specify what exactly is shiny. And, if you ask me, a shiny apartment is a bit tedious. Just think of the eye damage.
Contact: Denny, Leonidas Realty, (718) 833-4184

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,400
Location: Bay Ridge Parkway and 21st Avenue
Description: Dogs aren’t allowed here but there is a used mattress, according to the pictures, so it all works out in the end. Heat and hot water are included in the rent and there are laundry machines in the building.

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,000
Location: 77th Street and 19th Avenue
Description: This apartment occupies that ambiguous world between being a studio and a one bedroom. Since the toilet isn’t in the middle of the living room, we can call it a one bedroom. But it’s small. The realtor writes that it is only for a couple or a single person but you have to wonder why he felt the need to put that in the listing.

Viewing: September 14, 12:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 1982 West 5th Street
Description: This house is on the small side but with French doors and a backyard, it looks like a good investment. Take it from me, the 24-year-old that has never owned a house and still makes fart jokes.
Contact: Julia Trusheva, MXM Realty, (917) 512-8265

Price: $268,888
Viewing: September 13, 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Viewing: September 14, 1:00pm – 3:00pm

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,395
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: This apartment looks like it gets a lot of sunlight and it’s rooms tend to not trigger claustrophobia. Pets are allowed and the apartment is described as being “quiet,” which is good because your dog will really be able to get some mileage out of his midnight barks.
Contact: Frank Desdunes, Oxford Property Group, (347) 683-017

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,150
Location: 56 Bay 43rd Street
Description: While this apartment has a large kitchen, I wouldn’t go so far as the realtor does and say that this place is unbeatable. The realtor also writes that the apartment will be off the market soon, so hurry up already and call.
Contact: Vadim, Rapid Realty, (516) 427-4490

Two Bedrooms near 86th Street 
Price: $1,500
Location: Bay 35th Street, off of 86th Street
Description: The realtor writes that this apartment has easy access to the train. Which is an understatement because if you wanted, you could probably use a wooden plank as a bridge between the private patio and the train station.
Contact: Dmitry Yakhnis, Citi Habitats,  (917) 968-2314

Two Bedrooms and a Purple Room in Bath Beach
Price: $1,600
Location: 120 27th Avenue

Two Family “Frame” Home in Bensonhurst
Price: $988,000
Viewing: All weekend, 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Location: 1840 85th Street
Description: It’s not exactly clear what is meant by a frame home. There’s A-Frame homes and timber frame homes, neither of which look like this place. So, using context clues, I hereby declare that the term frame home refers to creepy looking houses that are, if not haunted, definitely home to one-eyed feral cats.

Viewing: August 31, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Price: $160,000
Viewing: August 30, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: 2606 Cropsey Avenue
Description: This Co-Op has an “oversized” one bedroom. So it’s not quote using the Standard T-Shirt Measurement but the description suggests a shirt that isn’t particularly large but it’s comfortable after years of wear.

Two Bedrooms on Bay Ridge Avenue
Price: $1,850
Location: Bay Ridge Avenue
Description:  Holy cow, what is that in the photo? I want that. Sign me up for a half dozen. Wait, two months security required? Is one month for the apartment, and the other for that AMAZING thing in the breeding room?
Contact: Svetlana Aksman, DSA Realty, (718) 629-8722.

There’s Nothing Creepy About The Name Gravesend
Price: $1,500
Location: West 3rd Street
Description: Sure, when you tell Brooklyn transplants you’ve got a one bedroom in Gravesend, they may think that’s some sort of colloquialism for a funeral plot. But really you could be speaking abut this place, which has high ceilings and tons of light and no known corpses.
Contact: Chris Shiamilis, Ardor New York, (212) 588-3000.

One Bedroom Near the N Train
Price: $1,395
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: It’s very pleasant, and there’s a park across the street. It’s also modern, so you won’t have to go outside to use the bathroom. Though, I suppose you could if you wanted. Just make sure to bag it when you’re done and, you know, throw it under a car or something like everybody else ’round here does.

Single Family Home in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,375,000
Viewing: August 17, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 1145 Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: Now when they say a single family, they don’t mean a family unit made up of one sad and lonely man who eats breakfast in his tattered underwear. But if you fit the bill, go ahead and treat yourself to this six bedroom, three bathroom brick house.

Location: 197 Bay 14th Street

Two Family Home in Bensonhurst

Viewing: August 17, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 2150 67th Street
Description: There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this house. The realtor notes that there is “great potential” but besides for living out the American Dream, I don’t see any other potential. Unless of course you need a hide-out.
Contact: Minh Duong, Weichert Realtors, (800) 375-2613

Price: $387,000
Viewing: All weekend, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Location: 526 Avenue Z
Description: Do you wish to own property but are too attached to living extremely close to strangers and walking up several flights of stairs?

French Doors, Cool Curtains on 20th Avenue
Price: $1,250
Location: 6503 20th Avenue
Description: Look, I just like artsy looking real estate photographs, so these guys get the top slot this week. Also, big fan of the agent’s honesty. In her video tour of the apartment, she points out that the floors are not real wood – they’re laminate. Ain’t no one trying to trick you here.

Two Bedrooms at Bay Parkway 
Price: $1,850
Location: Bay Parkway
Description: Decent size, well-lit by sunlight, a surprising number of closets and very white kitchen and bathroom. Not at all a terrible deal.

Two Bedroom Attic of a Private Home
Price: $1,750
Location: 2124 81st Street
Description: As someone who grew up living in an attic, the arched ceilings in the photo gave it away. Looking up the address on Google Street View revealed a house that appears to have been converted into three apartments. Despite the walk-up and low ceiling, it looks like a pretty nice spot for a vertically challenged family.

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750

Description: What do you call an exposed brick wall with white paint on it? Maybe just that. Anyway, that’s what this apartment has, along with an aluminum ladder in the bathtub.

Contact: Eduardo Artica, Coldwell Banker,  (718) 844-6824

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,200
Location: 85th Street and 21st Avenue
Description: The pictures in this listing have almost no sunlight and are mostly filled with shadows instead of the usual couch. The realtor is either not very good at hiding the lack of sunlight or he just finished watching a film noir.
Contact:Mike Friedman, Realty, (347) 408-5622

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,500
Location: 21st Avenue and Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: This apartment is on the small side, with an eat-in kitchen and a basic living room. The hardwood floors are oak, but how do we know that? Who regulates these things and is oak really the best kind of wood? Is there a demand for rare wood found in the Amazon? We have no idea.
