Residential Development site purchases shifted focus at the end of the decade from large parcels to smaller projects. Although dollar volume is down, 54% of the transactions were under $2M dollars which shows that developers are moving toward building assets of a smaller scale. Despite a decline in both dollar volume (-13%) and transactions (-44%), price per buildable foot is actually up 26% in regions like North Brooklyn.

10 Nevins Street Case Study

Ofer Cohen and Melissa Warren, along with their team were the sole brokers in the sale of the development site located at 10 Nevins Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

With over 14,000 residential units in Downtown Brooklyn’s development pipeline at the time of the sale, Team Cohen/Warren had to make sure this nearly shovel-ready site stood out in a congested market.

In a market dominated by rental units, 10 Nevins is positioned to be one of the largest condo projects in Downtown Brooklyn.
