“New developments battle brownstones in Boerum Hill”

… Despite the concerns, Boerum Hill will actually get new shops. The Hendrik will have
retail, as will The Nevins — a 73-unit project with interiors by Andres Escobar at 319
Schermerhorn St. that begins sales this spring from $550,000.
The neighborhood’s hip offerings include Clover Club, which is a popular cocktail bar, while
those in need of a bite can go to Shelsky’s — an old-school delicatessen that opened in 2011.
For games and concerts, Barclays Center at the neighborhood’s fringes draws ticketholders from
all over the city. Developers agree there’s more room for retail — which will clearly be needed to serve the area’s new residents. The HUB, a towering 56-story, 750-unit rental property at 333 Schermerhorn
St., where 20 percent of apartments will be affordable, launches leasing in July and will
bring even more people to Boerum Hill when move-ins begin this fall.
“It’s going to be a real 24-hour neighborhood,” says HUB developer Doug Steiner. “And I think
that’s an absolute positive.”
