Almost exactly a year ago, Halstead Property bought Cobble Heights Realty at 206 Court Street in Cobble Hill as well as Heights Berkeley Realty at 76 7th Avenue in Park Slope.
Though Halstead already has an office on Court Street, just blocks away at 162 Court Street, it kept both locations open for a year. However, it has just closed the office at 206 Court Street and is directing everyone to its existing location at the corner of Amity Street.
A real estate source informed me that "the deal was originally made just so Douglas Elliman could get the corner location in Park Slope formerly occupied by Heights Berkeley Realty."
What's more interesting for Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens residents is that the tipster also informed PMFA that a high end houseware store is coming to the Court Street location.
That's great news. We sure could use one.
