New Residents Move in at Be@Schermerhorn

50 Closings Have Taken Place

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Buyers are beginning to move in to their new homes at Be@Schermerhorn, according to the developers and sales team for the new residential tower in Downtown Brooklyn.

The sales team, from The Corcoran Group Brooklyn, also reports that 60 percent of the complex’s 246 units have sold in the five months since sales were launched.

Said Aaron Lemma, vice president and associate broker, “We have been preparing for and eagerly awaiting residents’ arrival, and now the moment is here.”

More than 50 homeowners will be moving in over the next few weeks, according to Lemma, who notes it’s “an impressive sales figure” in today’s real estate market.

“We’ve really surpassed the expected sales pace — and the overall market sales pace — to the point that we anticipate selling out by next spring,” he said.

As the Eagle has reported, the project is a collaboration between developer SDS Procida and Jamestown Properties, an original investment partner who in September 2009, purchased the remaining mortgage when the project stalled.

Some changes were made once Jamestown became a major owner.

“We have altered the personality of the building somewhat,” Michael Phillips, marketing director for Jamestown, told the Eagle in May. “That means a cleaner, simpler look architecturally.”

Additionally, although the building was originally designed to attract young first-time homebuyers, it is now appealing to a broader scope of Brooklyn buyers, like empty-nesters and young couples with children, both Phillips and Lemma said.

Other changes included opening up a larger portion of the rooftop for communal space and creating a bike room.

What hasn’t changed, according to Lemma, is the original goal of creating a community.

“From the greenhouse to the courtyard to the lounge and pool room, to the gym and media room, there are many different nooks where residents can congregate,” he said.

The complex was designed by the Stephen B. Jacobs Group.
