Sales are launching July 11th at 850 Metropolitan Avenue’s Milk Factory, the former Borden condensed milk distribution plant that was transformed into a loft building that offers 32 residences in trendy East Williamsburg. REAL New York is handling sales and marketing.


ROART, the highly creative and established interdisciplinary architecture firm, designed the 40,000 square foot, four-story building. It is topped with a striking cantilevered steel light box addition offering a dramatic counterpoint to the original brick property.

Homes inside 850 Metropolitan Avenue’s Milk Factory will range from studios to two-bedrooms. The current release includes a one-bedroom/one-bath offered at $787,000 and a two-bedroom/two-bath penthouse with a private outdoor terrace for $1.287 millionSome of the many special features of the units include 5″ white oak hardwood flooring, recessed designer light fixtures, Italian cabinetry, and fine porcelain floor tiles and more. Kitchen appliances feature Bosch or Sub-zero integrated refrigerators, Wolf gas ranges, Bosch integrated dishwashers, as well as washer/dryers in all apartments. 18 of the 32 units come with private outdoor space, some with sweeping panoramas across the East River to Manhattan.

Residents will enjoy access to such amenities as a fitness room, bike storage, and a lobby lounge complete with a gas fireplace and textured concrete walls.

Previously an industrial area, East Williamsburg is a thriving creative quarter filled with street art, historic buildings, tech enterprises, hot restaurants, and trendy new shops. By contrast to its more developed neighbor Central Williamsburg, East Williamsburg still marches to its own beat, resisting relentless development while retaining its historic, community-minded character.
