Back in February 2014, PMFA wrote about the conversion and vertical enlargement of an existing one story garage building to a one-family dwelling at 181 President Street, between Henry and Clinton Streets. Designed by Ramy Issac of Issac and Stern Architects, PC, the new four-story building, which includes a cellar and two garages on street level has been rising slowly and seems to be nearly completed.

Reader Joao, who recently walked past the site, reports that 181 President Street is now being marketed and has its own logo as well as a web site http://181President Street.com. Joao reports: "If you enter your email address on the website, you get subscribed to an email list from Halstead Property Development Marketing."

A banner hanging from the new building urges potential buyers to "discover the unrivaled luxury of the most sophisticated new construction townhouse in Carroll Gardens."

No mention of the price tag for this new home. Care to venture a guess?

Yes, I care to guess: Obscenely expensive. How's that for a guess? ;-)

That would have been my guess, too, Joao.

$10 - $15 million, maybe more. Site was purchased for $1.4MM just 3 years ago.

The brick work is nice. And it could be uglier. It looks like an old industrial building with those windows. Anything is better than a glass bomb or quasi terraced fakester. Single family is what kills me. I don't need to guess we'll know soon enough.

I think the fa├žade is lovely- brickwork is a beautiful nod to the past- looks reclaimed. I went by the other day and noticed it for the first time. I'm actually totally shocked it was built as a one family. Seems like a vulgar and careless use of habitable space, even if it is luxury. However- I really like the architecture.

Looks commercial. I think it's one family because property isn't deep. Bklyn is dead.

4:18 NY in general is dead - too expensive. for the rich. I heard yesterday that there is a back log of people trying to get into the projects. Even affordable housing isn't affordable.

You know you've made it when your home has its own logo.

That's very true and funny.

At least it has two separate garage doors so nobody can park in front of your new house.
