175 Kent Fully Leased

The Real Deal reports that 175 Kent Avenue – a 112-unit building at the corner of North 3rd Street – is now full leased.

What really caught my eye, though, was some of the broker babble:

The 112-unit rental conversion at 175 Kent Avenue…

Conversion from what? This is a new building. Never lived in. Doesn’t a building have to have some sort of prior use to be a conversion?

…the Williamsburg waterfront property…

The waterfront is a block away. Now either side of Kent Avenue is “waterfront”.
