It’s been years since we’ve visited 168-172 Meserole Street, a Scarano-designed building in East Williamsburg that first filed for permits back in 2003. Since we last peeked in 2008, there’s been quite a lot of progress on the exterior of the building. Back then we didn’t like what appeared to be a pointed roof, but now that we can see the whole design, we think this building has more panache than the usual developer special. A lis pendens was filed against the building for $6 million in 2009; in January, it sold from one LLC to another for $5,750,000. Not much visible work seems to have taken place since at least March, judging by the photos on PropertyShark. Permits were taken over and renewed a few weeks ago by engineering consultants Schneider Associates of Watchtung, N.J. It appears the interior and the facade on the bottom floor still remain to be finished.

This three-story-plus-basement brownstone at 101 Macon Street has lots of pretty details and is currently set up as a triplex over a garden-floor rental. There’s a whimsical screen, stained glass, eight very nice late 19th-century mantels, and what looks like two original windows. Most buyers will probably want to update, although the bathrooms and kitchens […]
This loft at 50 Bridge Street in Dumbo has been on the market since the summer for $699,000. While the 980-square-foot pad is not as fancy as most apartments in Dumbo these days, it is priced relatively inexpensively and is in move-in condition. So what’s the hold-up? Could be that the low-ceiling mezzanine that rings […]
