INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Although Brooklyn has been booming for years, few understood the value of South Brooklyn, quite like Muss. When an old Verizon site became available for purchase in Sheepshead Bay, Muss immediately understood the value of the nearly 2.5 acre property which was just steps from the B,Q subway. After seeing tremendous success in Brighton Beach, after their sellout of over 924 condominiums over 16 buildings at Oceana, Muss knew that high end condominiums in South Brooklyn were in high demand. 

Muss purchased a 101,789 sf vacant lot in the heart of Sheepshead Bay which allowed them to partner with Avalon Bay to build 30 stories of residential units with unparalleled ocean to city views.  By dividing the project into a rental and condominium development, Muss was able to develop 56 condo units on the top 11 floors, while Avalon Bay developed rental units below. With a shared amenity package and lobby, Muss was able to leverage the partnership to keep costs and risks low.  This also enabled the 56 units to share a large amenity package which includes an outdoor pool, outdoor loggia, fitness center, children’s playroom, pet spa, and pet run.
