The 19th Police Precinct Station House and Stable is a landmark romanesque revival police precinct complex, consisting of a three-story station house and a stable wing to the east, connected by a one-story passageway. Developed by North Brooklyn Development Corporation (NBDC), and funded by HPD with additional funds from councilwoman Diana Reyna and Borough President Marty Markowitz, this building has been converted to 14 affordable condominium units varying from 1 to 3 bedrooms. The Station House building accommodates four apartments per floor, twelve units in total. Two ground floor units are duplex apartments with recreation rooms in the cellar. The carriage house contains two apartments and is accessed via the link between the two structures.

As a Landmark and SHPO (State office of Parks and Historic Preservation) project, every exterior detail and some of the interior details have been preserved and carefully replicated. The ironwork about the entry was salvaged and those parts of it that had deteriorated were replicated. Landmarked wood windows were replaced and in order to meet sound attenuation regulations, a second set of aluminum windows were installed. Interior work that was replicated includes pressed tin ceilings, oak panel entry doors to the apartments, the central wood stair, and the wainscoting at the corridors. The structural column was preserved and framed around so that the vestige of the old structure could be seen alongside the new construction.
