Now this is a real loft. The 2,000-square-foot space on the third floor of 119 North 11th Street in Williamsburg is nothing if not authentic. Big wood beams, tons of windows, open layout. Given what a high rent district North Williamsburg has become it’s safe to assume that whoever buys this place will at the very least want to upgrade the kitchen, but that’s why it’s priced at $1,750,000 — well below what neighboring “luxury” apartments would go for.
This lofty duplex at 174 Pacific Street isn’t as cool as the one in Williamsburg we highlighted yesterday but the former schoolhouse has a nice vibe to it for sure. The size of the windows is the biggest selling point for us followed by ceiling heights and great original floorboards. We’re not really feeling the cabinetry — in both the kitchen and the living room — but that’s easily remedied. Asking price is $1,500,000.
This is one of the coolest apartments we’ve seen for sale in a long time. The fourth-floor apartment at 330 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg is a rare breed — a condo conversion that actually managed to maintain an authentic artist’s loft feel. The 30-foot-high ceilings and huge windows certainly help. Potential buyers will have to be okay with the idea of hiking up into the mezzanine bedroom. They will also need an impressive art collection to fill those walls! Asking price is $1,600,000 and the super-low common charges of $125 a month won’t increase until 2018. Love it!
If a full brownstone in Park Slope is out of your budget, perhaps half a brownstone will do? That’s the pitch with this new lower-duplex listing at 838 President Street. The four-bedroom apartment has been recently renovated in an upscale manner — though we’re not loving all those dropped ceilings with recessed lighting. It’s in great shape though and the location — less than two blocks from the park and Grand Army Plaza — is hard to beat. Asking price for the 1,840-square-foot pad? $2,250,000.
There’s no lack of charm to this one-bedroom co-op at 39 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights. The top-floor apartment has tons of original woodwork and inlaid floors. Both the living room and bedroom are generously proportioned as well. Kitchen’s on the small side but has been recently renovated. With a modest monthly maintenance of $909 and an asking price of $699,000, we think this’ll go pretty fast.
$1,450,000 is a lot of money for a single floor of a townhouse, but maybe not when that single floor spills out onto a private terrace overlooking the Promenade and New York Harbor. The apartment has been completely renovated in a slightly schizophrenic mix of traditional and modern. There’s a master bedroom plus a pretty small second bedroom. We’re guessing there’s about 1,100 square feet of indoor space and the listing puts the outdoor space at about 1,000 square feet. Waddya think?
Here’s a nice-looking resale at one of the Hello Living buildings on the western edge of Crown Heights — 935 Pacific Street, to be specific. This three-bedroom duplex has 1,155 square feet of indoor space as well as two terraces. The apartment sold originally for $830,000 back in 2008 and is now asking $939,500, not a crazy increase by any stretch. In fact, we suspect it’ll be well received at this price.
It’s been about a year and a half since we teamed up with BFC Partners and Goldman Sachs’ Urban Investment Group to buy the old Studebaker Service Station at 1000 Dean Street in Crown Heights and convert it into office and studio space. Construction’s been under way since May 2012. We began preleasing office space at the end of the summer and already have a number of leases, mostly for spaces in the 1,000- to 4,000-square-foot range, signed and in the works.
The renovation is almost done and we are targeting a January occupancy so we thought it would be a fun time to show some updated photos of the project. (We’ve also included a couple of photos on the jump of the Brooklyn Flea beer hall under construction on the Bergen Street side of the property.)
If you are in the market for Brooklyn office space, there are still plenty of smaller units available on the second and third floors (like this listing and this listing) and up to 35,000 per floor on the ground floor and fourth floor.

Though technically a one-bedroom, two-bath, this ground-floor duplex condo in the Cathedral Condominiums in Clinton Hill has bonus space on the lower level. The rear of the living area is easy on the eyes, with some interesting arches, round windows and high ceilings. What do you think of it for $849,000?
If you like your prewar served with a side of modern this new listing at 9 Prospect Park West in Park Slope might be the perfect dish. While plenty of original details remain, the 2008 renovation of this classic seven injected plenty of modern touches in the form of a sleek kitchen and bathroom, recessed lighting and dark-stained floors. The apartment is on the corner of the building and has 19 windows looking out over the park and a wide expanse of Brooklyn. The living/dining area alone is almost 50 feet long. Pretty sweet. Asking price is $3,900,000.
We bet this new listing at 103 Prospect Park West will go fast. It’s a duplex on the front half of a townhouse facing the park between 5th and 6th streets in Park Slope. It’s not huge but the layout actually works a lot better than a typical floor-through plan. And it’s in nice shape and well styled. Asking price is $670,000 with a monthly maintenance of $1,025.
It’s hard to believe there was a time when it was a stretch for an apartment at 189 Schermerhorn (aka be@schermerhorn) to fetch $500 a square foot, especially when you consider the asking price of $540,000 for this new 510-square-foot listing. While it’s not a lot of square footage, it is still a real one-bedroom, and one on a high floor, with lots of windows and views, as well as modern finishes. It’ll be interesting to see if they can break the $1,000-a-square-foot mark in this building.
