A three-bedroom unit has just come up for sale at One Prospect Park, the glassy Richard Meier behemoth at Grand Army Plaza. This one has park views from the living room, the terrace and all three bedrooms. The 2,100-square-foot pad also has a home office and a walk-in storage area. Asking price: $2,599,000.
Even though co-ops of this size and pedigree in Brooklyn Heights are few and far between, this eighth-floor pad at 160 Henry Street has been having a hard time finding a buyer. Listed almost a year ago for $2,900,000, the 2,300-square-foot five-bedroom was subsequently reduced to $2,750,000 before settling in at its current ask of $2,550,000 in June.
It’s a big place that was clearly redone recently and couldn’t be any more convenient for those with kids in local private schools. What’s the rub? $1,100 a foot doesn’t seem out of whack in today’s market, but perhaps the 50 percent down payment, the 1 percent flip tax paid by the buyer, or the $3,703 maintenance is a hurdle?
This new top-floor listing in a brownstone at 85 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights is a little disappointing. Given the location and building type, we were hoping for something with a more old-school vibe.
Instead, what you’ve got is a perfectly-fine-but-not-particularly-charming two-bedroom pad with baseboard heating and no crown moldings. The exclusive roof rights are a nice bonus though and certainly take the edge off the asking price of $875,000. And you can’t argue with the location.
We’re just an inspection or two away from being able to open the doors at 1000 Dean, the former Studebaker Service Station in Crown Heights that we bought in 2012 with BFC Partners and Goldman Sachs’ Urban Investment Group and have been renovating ever since. To give potential tenants a better sense of the 150,000-square-foot building’s possibilities, a few weeks ago we hired the Mary Howard Studio and photographers Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton to style and shoot, respectively, scenes from within the spaces.
We’re including a few of the photos here, but you can see more on this blog post over at the new 1000Dean.com. If you’re interested in becoming part of the 1000 Dean community, you can check out listings at aptsandlofts.com or email Chris Havens at CHavens@aptsandlofts.com.
Also in the home stretch is Berg’n, the 9,000-square-foot beer hall we’re building on the ground floor of 1000 Dean that will feature four Smorgasburg favorites — Mighty Quinn’s, RamenBurger, Pizza Moto and Asia Dog — on a seven-day-a-week basis along with a list of beers from around the world curated by Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver and a full coffee and pastry bar. The best way to follow along with the beer hall progress is to “like” the Berg’n Facebook page.
If you missed your chance to get a place at the Peaks Mason Mints conversion in Brooklyn Heights, this resale is your first shot at rectifying the situation. The fourth-floor apartment has tons of charm, with original wood beams and a slew of large, beautiful windows. The 1,312-square-foot two-bedroom is asking $1,650,000 which sounds about right to us in this market.
This new listing at 134 Lincoln Place has the layout you’d expect from a brownstone floor-through apartment — kitchen and living up front with a big bedroom and a small bedroom in the back. This one’s also got a bay window and a working fireplace. We wouldn’t mind seeing some crown moldings but overall the apartment has a traditional feel (though we doubt that fireplace is original). Asking price: $739,000. Maintenance: $952.
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at One Hanson just hit the market with a price tag of $1,260,000. It’s a good layout on a high floor with righteous views so it’ll interesting to see if Fort Greene is ready for $1,200-a-foot pricing! This unit has 1,054 square feet of space and common charges of $1,073. 1 Hanson Place, #14G [Halstead] GMAP
This new listing at 174 Pacific sure is a handsome specimen. The high ceilings of the old school house’s ground floor are the defining feature of the two-bedroom co-op. This accommodates a huge wall of built-in shelving as well as a mezzanine sleeping area. We like how the kitchen was renovated too. Asking price is $1,500,000.
There’s lots to love about this 1,430-square-foot condo at One Brooklyn Bridge Park. The eighth-floor pad has two large bedrooms, a big kitchen and living area and harbor views. The asking price of $2,110,000 feels steep (that’s almost $1,500 a square foot) but the private rooftop cabana does take some of the sting out of that number. It’s amazing what prices in the building have done over the past couple of years!
This new listing at 2 Northside Piers is one of the nicest ones in the building. The 1,376-square-foot pad has two bedrooms (plus home office) in addition to two walls of windows and west-facing balcony. Monthly expenses are only $1,009 but the ticket price on this baby is $1,795,000.
We’re liking the big windows and high ceilings in this listing for 69 Stagg Street in Williamsburg. The 1,388-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a mezzanine that could be whatever you wanted it to be. The major drawback we can see is that the building is five blocks from the G, seven blocks from the J and M and a certified hike from the L. Asking price is $995,000 and monthly charges are just $427.
Dreams of Ditmas but those gingerbread houses are out of reach? Maybe this new co-op listing at 1701 Albemarle Road might fit the bill. The 1,310-square-foot pad has some solid prewar details (though the listing admits it could use some TLC) and a generous layout. The two-bedroom unit has a maintenance of $707 and the asking price is $649,000.
