Referred to as “the last great deal in New York City” and “Brooklyn’s best kept secret,” Concord Village was a Brooklyn pioneer when it converted from rental units to private cooperative ownership more than 30 years ago. The seven-acre complex comprises 1,023 apartments in seven 17-story buildings surrounded by landscaped grounds. Financially stable and amenity-rich, Concord Village offers an exceptional quality of life. Residents can participate in groups and activities geared to their interests and lifestyle.
Parallel to the Brooklyn Bridge entrance, and bordered to the west by the Brooklyn Heights historical district, to the north by DUMBO, and to the east and south by a revitalized Downtown Brooklyn, Concord Village is superbly situated.
In addition to the beautifully landscaped grounds, public parks abound. Cadman Plaza Park, Columbus Park and McLaughlin Park are steps away. Brooklyn Bridge Park, characterized by its exquisite view of the East River bridges and Manhattan skyline, is also a short walk from Concord Village.
Access to transportation is unmatched. One subway station (A/C) is virtually on site and others (2/3, 4/5, F, N, and R) are within a few blocks, as are many bus lines. The lower Manhattan Financial District is one subway stop away, although many residents who work in that area walk or bike across the Brooklyn Bridge. Midtown Manhattan is approximately a 20 minute subway trip.
Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights were centers of commerce and government historically. Currently, the areas surrounding Concord Village, particularly Downtown Brooklyn and DUMBO, are undergoing revival. As they are modernized for today’s economy, whether through new construction or the repurposing of pre-existing structures, employment opportunities and incentives for entrepreneurship are expanding exponentially.
Service, Safety and Security
The full-service co-op has a staff of over 60 employees, including full-time doormen, porters, handymen, and two maintenance supervisors living on-site.
Security guards patrol the complex seven days a week from 2 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Surveillance cameras are installed on the grounds and in each building’s lobby.
Concord Village’s superior fire-resistant construction comprises concrete‐encased steel frames and concrete floors. All original interior partitions are plaster on terracotta walls.
Concord Village’s higher elevation provides greater protection in storm surges, such as those experienced during Hurricane Sandy, than some neighboring communities.
Management and Governance
The property is managed by Akam Management, which has a four‐person full‐time staff on site at 215 Adams Street. A seven‐person elected Board of Directors sets operational and budgetary policies and standards.
