102 Gold Street

The 102 Gold Street building, (aka Ironwood) will start showing in early February, according to Corcoran, the realtors who are marketing the condos. The architect is Anthony Morena and the developer is The REDD Group, the same team that developed the green, energy efficient townhouse next door, 100 Gold Street. From the new Ironwood website:

“Ten distinct residents in the heart of historic Vinegar Hill. Fusing modernist ideals with sustainable building practices, Ironwood ushers in a new standard of green living to one of Brooklyn’s most storied and iconic neighborhoods. Creative re-use of recovered materials from the building site, married to locally sourced and re-claimed building products, mark a building where responsible building practices and attention to craft create distinct, livable, beautiful residences. Inside, a carefully selected range of units including one bedrooms (some with home offices), a garden duplex, a triplex with parking, and a floor-thru three bedroom, provide potential residents choice in determining how a home at Ironwood can be tailored to their unique lifestyle.”

102 Gold Street was an old 3 story townhouse, sold in 2006 with 100 Gold Street. 100 Gold Street was demolished and redevelopment was completed by March 2009.

Prices for 102 Gold Street are not yet published but for comparison, 100 Gold Street condos were asking $675 to $867 per square feet. Do you think 102 Gold will sell as well as it’s neighbor building 100 Gold?

104 Gold Street

In May 2012, Brownstoner posted about 104 Gold Street building being reopened as a shelter.

Last month, NY Times published an article about Community First Services, the non-profit organization that was awarded a $29 million contract to run halfway houses in Brooklyn. They say that they had consulted closely with leading community organizations about setting up the federal halfway house in Brooklyn. One of these halfway houses is in Vinegar Hill at 104 Gold Street (pictured above).

Per the NY Times article:

In September, Community First moved the 161-bed halfway house to a new location, on Gold Street in the Dumbo section of Brooklyn. Several prominent neighborhood groups first learned about it a month later, when called by The Times.

“Didn’t know a thing about it,” said Robert Perris, the district manager of Community Board 2. “I love it when I find out about stealth social service agencies from the media.”

The lengthy federal contract requires Community First to take numerous steps to help inmates find jobs. They are to be assisted with “portfolio development, résumé writing, proper dress and interview techniques training.” The halfway house must provide “individual and group counseling, case management and post-release follow-up.”

But current and former inmates said that in reality, the halfway house provided little more than three meals and a bed.

“They don’t set you up with any interviews,” a current inmate said. “They put a poster on the wall. They just send you to a job fair. They don’t give you any tools.”
