Chocolate Factory Lofts

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 of 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.


Pelham Hall

Pelham Hall — just outside Boston proper — is a regal example of 1920’s grandeur. Soon, it will boast the latest in high-end modern conveniences as well. When Fairstead acquired this market-rate property in the heart of Brookline’s Coolidge Corner, the company started a renovation that would maintain all of its Art Deco details — decorative moldings, crystal doorknobs, brass fixtures, and hardwood floors — while refreshing the floor plans and common areas. The work called for breaking down walls to reconfigure the living spaces that would better accommodate today’s families. The ambitious program introduced open-concept kitchens, with quartz countertops, Shaker-style cabinets, champagne-bronze finishes, modern matte-black hardware, transitional lighting, and top-of-the-line, energy-efficient appliances. Both the kitchen and the bathrooms were fitted with low-flow fixtures, reflecting the brand standards of Fairstead’s Design & Construction team. At ground level, the retail spaces are also in the process of being reimagined, in order to house boutiques and shops that will, in turn, elevate the vibrancy of the neighborhood.
