Owner opts for rentals over condos at 75 Clinton

Jan.January 26, 2012 06:00 PM

Dallas-based investment firm Invesco, the new owner of a planned 74-unit condominium conversion at 75 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, has opted to lease the units instead, Crain’s reported, and will bring them to market in early February.

Invesco, which completed its purchase the building last week, has retained the Marketing Directors as the exclusive marketing firm for the building, in which rents will range from $2,800 a month to $7,000 a month. The condo was never declared effective previously.

Angela Ferrara, vice president of sales for the Marketing Directors, said Invesco had chosen to take advantage of favorable renting conditions in the market.

“The rental market is booming,” she said.

The company isn’t on its own in going for rentals over condos.

The Jardin, a 44-unit condominium at 142 North 6th Street in Williamsburg, is also turning rental, it was reported earlier today. The building will refund the deposits of all buyers in contract. [Crain’s]
