The Chocolate Factory Lofts, located in Brooklyn’s leafy Clinton Hill neighborhood, offer charm and convenience in equal measure. When Fairstead acquired this landmark property — a former manufacturing plant for Tootsie Rolls — in 2019, the company invested $75M in in-unit and common-area renovations. The work ensured that residents can continue to appreciate all the original architectural details — exposed brick walls, reclaimed wood beams and 12-foot ceilings — as they enjoy the many luxury finishes and modern updates added throughout. Some of those updates — LED lighting upgrades, low-flow kitchen and bathroom fixtures — will mean The Chocolate Factory Lofts will continue to represent eco-conscious Brooklyn living.
The comprehensive revitalization plan for this unique, market-rate residence also includes improvements to the lobby, hallways, roof deck, courtyard and on-site gym. And the property is also being fitted with a co-working space, a timely addition installed to support work-from-home residents. It’s one more bonus of Fairstead’s ongoing commitment to elevate the living experience wherever it puts down roots.
