Thanks to an ongoing conversion by DDG and Westbrook Properties, the historic Standish Arms Hotel will soon debut 31 new condominium residences. Situated at 171 Columbia Heights, the 12-story building was originally constructed in 1903 and designed by F. S. Lowe. Now dubbed The Standish, the building features a brick, terracotta, and limestone façade with high-arch windows at the base and wide bay windows above.

Upon expected completion in 2018, the interiors will feature beautiful homes ranging from one-bedroom residences to gorgeous penthouses. BuzzBuzzHome recently uncovered a “Residences” page on the building’s website, featuring beautiful interior renderings of the soon-to-come homes. Each has been designed to reflect classic turn-of-the-century design and the Beaux-Arts aesthetic.

Inside, elevated ceilings and wide windows will make for generous living spaces and panoramic city vistas. Homes will be naturally finished in Cararra marble, wide plank Austrian white oak flooring, and specially crafted wood accents. Custom-designed kitchens will host Shaker-style cabinetry, premium Bertazzoni-Italia and Bosch appliances, and natural brass Fantini fixtures. Bathrooms will feature rain showers, travertine and mosaic accents, Fantini fixtures, undermount sinks, and freestanding tubs. Select residences will offer private rooftop terraces, and all will offer ample storage space.


Situated among Brooklyn Heights’ gorgeous brick and brownstone townhouses, the Standish will offer residences located just off the Promenade and in close proximity to highly acclaimed restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries. Prices for the currently available residences range from $1.3 to $4.5 million. There are currently 63 condos for sale in Brooklyn Heights with an average price of $2.235 million, or $1,492 per square foot. The average price per square foot for a condo in the neighborhood was $1,444 as of September 1st, significantly higher than a price per square foot of $1,190 last September.
