The first phase of sales in the Brewster Carriage House, a six-story, 19th century building in Nolita, began Wednesday night.

Five of the nine units in the building, at the corner of Broome and Mott streets, have hit the market. The available condominiums range from a 1,969-square-foot, one-bedroom, two and a half-bathroom second floor unit that is asking $2.85 million, to a 3,553-square-foot, two-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse that is listed for $8 million, according to the website of exclusive marketers Prudential Douglas Elliman. Four more units, including a duplex with a private roof space, are being held back, the condo’s website shows.

The Brewster Carriage House was once home to carriage manufacturer Brewster & Co. and later a canvas manufacturer, according to previously published media reports. In 2005, developer Ross Morgan purchased the 26,000-square-foot building for $9 million under an LLC named Little Red House and began a condominium conversion. Now, five of the nine units in the building have hit the market with John Gomes and Fredrik Eklund of Prudential Douglas Elliman. 

Morgan, Eklund and Gomes all declined to comment through a spokesperson.

The Corcoran Group was initially chosen to market the units, agent Larry Carty confirmed, before Morgan settled on the Elliman team. Carty said he and Irene Lo, both agents in the Corcoran Soho office, brought the buyer who is currently in contract to purchase the penthouse.
