160Imlay In Related LBRHFO News ...

Curbed’s got info that 160 Imlay is up for sale. Observers of the Red Hook scene will note that this property’s had problems since its developers started its condo conversion. Red Hook real-estate baron Greg O’Connell’s been opposed to the conversion since the beginning, and the projects been stalled for years.

Mr. O’Connell’s been the prime mover for much of Red Hook’s “renaissance”–depending on whom you ask–and he’s the owner of 480-500 Van Brunt Street, the Fairway building.

We’ll go O’Connell-hunting this afternoon–he’s been spotted at the Fairrway opening–and get his take on this development.
