Building Description

The Clermont Armory is a new residential development built on the site of one of the oldest armories in New York City. Opened for occupancy in August of 2000, this 110 unit rental building is located at 171 Clermont Avenue in Fort Greene, one of the trendiest brownstone neighborhoods near downtown Brooklyn. Built in two wings behind the facade of the original armory, the apartments face an elevated courtyard. Three of the wrought iron trusses that spanned the original drill hall (built in 1873), were retained in the courtyard, exposed to the sky, in an attempt to capture some of the character of the original Clermont Armory.

The apartments, ranging in size from studios to three bedrooms, are equipped with dishwashers, state of the art intercom system, hardwood floors, and many have breathtaking views. Ten of the apartments on the Clermont Avenue side have spacious balconies facing a front atrium created behind the original facade. The building amenities include a 24 hour doorman/concierge, elevators, a landscaped courtyard, a laundry room, video surveillance and an integrated access control system. On site attended parking is also available (at an additional cost).
