The four-unit condo building on Wilson Avenue in Bushwick that we covered in November has sold out. Granted, we are only talking about four units here, but they sure went fast. According to Elliman Broker Jessica Peters, one of those representing the building, offers on all four apartments were accpeted within 24 hours of the building going on the market (contracts could not be signed right away due to amendments that were being made to the offering plan). Two of the four units sold over the asking price — the top unit by about $20,000 over. Every sale was an all-cash deal. The two bedroom units were priced between $475,000 and $599,000. In November commenters were skeptical about the apartments and the location, a bit of a walk from the Morgan Ave L. Said one commenter, “the two bedroom has such a tiny kitchen, with no counter space. The AC unit looks like its sloppily coming out of the upper wall. A private roof deck is nice, but for this hood and a good walk to the train, tough to drop over 500k.” Well, apparently not too tough.

Makeshift’s Brooklyn spot occupies 4,000 square feet across both floors and offers 17-foot ceilings, open seating and dedicated studio desks. It will also have a creative tool lending library […]
Here the developers have gutted a small one-family and turned it into three small open-plan apartments, each with two bedrooms. (The listing says there’s an owner’s duplex, but going by the floor plan, it seems to be referring to the cellar.) Some charm still remains in the form of beautiful fireplaces and the exterior, which has […]
This two-bedroom, two-bath triplex in a Park Slope conversion has an airy feel with two terraces and a roof deck and an interesting mezzanine space. There’s also plenty of room for a home office or two and walk-in closets for both bedrooms. We’re a little puzzled by the floor plan, however, which seems to chop […]
This three-bedroom, two-bath duplex in a Prospect Lefferts Gardens house looks large and well-cared for. The 1,500-square-foot pad has an updated eat-in kitchen with a dishwasher, and both bathrooms appear to be in good shape although not renovated recently. The house also has a screened-in porch, shared backyard, and parking for an additional fee. It’s […]
Work has started at the long-empty double corner lot prominently situated across from Saratoga Park at 840-838 Halsey Street. At one time it was slated to become a community garden, but now plans call for two-three family, three-story buildings. There are no renderings on the fence, but we won’t be surprised if they are Fedders. […]
