Turning A One Story Garage Into A 4 Story, One Family Home On President Street

A one story brick garage building at 181 President Street, between Henry and Clinton Streets, is making way for a four story, one family home.  Just a few weeks ago, a construction fence went up and   demolition on the existing structure began.
According to the NYC Department Of Buildings' web site, the new 3,254 sq.ft. home was designed by Ramy Issac of Issac and Stern Architects, PC.
The work is expected to be completed by winter 2015

I bet the lucky family that is building this house will be very interested in $35 emu eggs at Whole Foods.

For sure.

I'm just happy to see a ONE family house going there instead of another 4,5, or 6 family building.

Yeah, hate to have 4, 5, or 6 rich families moving to the neighborhood. One mega-rich couple is much better.

Yuck. I miss low-rise buildings and a sense of sky.

Four stories IS low rise.

Was recently looking for industrial rental space for a landscaping business. Impossible to find anything decently priced! There are plenty of untapped areas all over Brooklyn full of beautiful homes. Sick of seeing every last bit of industrial space rezoned for homes/condos. This will only add to the cost of living increase for everyone else. If I have to spend 20-40 minutes driving into park slope to do a job, I will have to charge more. Brooklyn isn't only pushing out the poor, we're pushing out businesses we need.

Just noticed this construction on my walk to the subway this morning. They have a banner outside the building with a 181 logo, an listing a website (http;//181president.com). If you enter your email address on the website, you get subscribed to an email list from Halstead Property Development Marketing. So looks it wasn't purchased for a family. Their website doesn't say anything if it is going to be a single-family or multiple units.

I saw it almost completed a few days ago myself. Will stop by to take some photos. Thanks for reaching out.
