Project Description

A ten-story landmark in the heart of the
Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the former
Franklin Trust building at 166 Montague
Street has undergone a conversion from
an office property into upscale residential
condominiums. The goal of the $10 million
project was to retain the distinctive character
of the Romanesque-style structure, built in
1891 and described as a “gem” in the AIA
Guide to New York City.
George L. Morse, who designed the
50,000 SF building, used rusticated granite
for the base, Indiana limestone for the
two-story arches, light brick and terra cotta
for the body, and capped the building with
a dormered, mansard roof of Spanish tile.
The architects have kept the architecturally
significant elements intact and used them as
inspiration for the entire renovation.
The project encompasses a gut renovation,
the creation of a rooftop terrace, the
addition of a sky-lit health club, new west-facing
balconies and windows, and a one-story
glass addition on Clinton Street to house a
new entrance for the offices of United Management.
