The Times Bldg Condominium at 852 Cypress Ave. is a collection of nineteen loft style apartments located on the border of Ridgewood and Bushwick. Built in 1920, this architecturally striking Renaissance style building (and former home to the historic Ridgewood Times newspaper), was painstakingly converted in 2008 to preserve both the feel of the original project as well as the neighborhood as a whole.
Totaling 1,039 sq.ft. with 373 sq.ft. of private outdoor space, #3B is currently set up as a large one bedroom, two bath (1BR/2BTH) duplex with two large terraces showcased through a wall of floor to ceiling windows that let in an abundance of natural light via western views overlooking the city. The unit can also be easily re-configured into a one and a half bedroom (1.5BR) by creating a home office on the lower level (see alternate layout).
This home has been lovingly updated with sophisticated, design-forward details such as: Wall2Floor seamless system in a honed concrete mortar finish, spiral staircase leading to the remodeled master suite with custom built in dressing area made of solid oak shelves & steel framing, Revel baseboards, and an updated kitchen featuring maple cabinets, Richlite counters with Kraus sink, Kohler faucet and Bertazzoni gas cooktop alongside a Whirlpool refrigerator & dishwasher.
Additional features include 10' high beamed ceilings, dual zoned ductless Fujitsu a/c units, select lighting by School House Electric, ceiling fans by Modern Fan Company, plus sleek modern baths with luxury finishes by Groen and Kohler; including radiant heated flooring, towel warmer and skylight, and Bosch stackable washer/dryer in unit! The building comes with a common roof deck, bicycle and storage rooms (available for rent), plus a J51 tax abatement in place until 2026.
The neighborhood offers a cornucopia of diverse retail options that are constantly being added on to. Nearby favorites include beverage & music venues Trans Pecos, Nowadays, Sundown Bar; eateries Cantina 33, L'Imprimerie, While in Kathmandu, Morscher's Pork Store, Norma's, Houdini Kitchen Laboratory, Onderdonk & Sons; with cafes such as Milk & Pull, Rudy's Bakery, and Porcelain. Transportation options include the Myrtle/Wyckoff Ave L/M subway located 3 blocks away for an easy commute into Manhattan in 20-minutes.
