Inspired by the historic, Brooklyn-based Schermerhorn family, whose name dates back to the 1600's, The Symon is set to rise at the edge of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. At 12-storeys, the Eugene Colberg-designed condo building will be replace the turn-of-the-century Brooklyn Health Center, thereby bringing new life to one of the oldest cities in America.

Developed by Lonicera Partners, Orange Management Inc., and The Davies Companies, the 59-unit condo project will soon be home to upwards of 75 residents. Centrally located, and close to transit, shops, restaurants, and bars, the Brooklyn Heights adjacent project will be a prime address for Brooklynites of all stripes.

Available in a mix of configurations and sizes - from 1- to 4-bedrooms - suites at The Symon will fit most every budget from luxury to ultra-luxury, and everywhere in-between. Scheduled for completion sometime next year, The Symon will make for a fine addition to central Brooklyn.
