1138 ocean avenue ditmas park 22015

This big (1,279 square feet) two-bedroom condo at 1138 Ocean Avenue in Ditmas Park just came on the market with a price tag of $899,000. It’s got a nice modern feel to it and appears to be in great shape. Both bedrooms have a decent amount of room and there’s a private balcony off the living room. How does the price strike you for the area?

one john street penthouse 1

Alloy Development yesterday listed a penthouse at One John Street in Brooklyn Bridge Park for $8,800,000, or $2,406 a square foot, making it one of the priciest condo listings in the borough. The still-under-construction development is also 60 percent sold (in contract), PR reps told us, after launching sales in September.

New renderings of the apartment went up with the listing. The four-bedroom, 4.5-bath condo encompasses 3,657 square feet, plus a 693-square-foot private roof terrace. And there is a fireplace! (It’s gas, not wood burning. Perhaps even more remarkable, the unit has its own vented gas clothes dryer.) 

As pricey as this condo is, it’s nowhere near the $32,000,000 an 11,000-square-foot penthouse at 360 Furman Street in One Brooklyn Bridge Park, also in the park, was asking. That unit, repped by the same agents as this one, was taken off the market five days ago, according to StreetEasy.

The Real Deal was the first to write about the $8,800,000 listing. Alloy designed and developed the building, which is expected to wrap up construction in summer 2016. 

Check out more renderings after the jump. Worth it?

360 furman street brooklyn heights 22015

Whoa boy! Check out this monster pad that just became available at One Brooklyn Bridge Park. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom condo weighs in just a hair shy of 4,000 square feet and features 12-foot ceilings and expansive views in three directions. Even if you can’t come close to affording the $7,500,000 price tag, this listing’s worth checking out for voyeuristic reasons alone.

138 broadway williamsburg 22015

$1,149,000 for an 879-square-foot one-bedroom in South Williamsburg sounds like a tall order but this condo in the Smith Gray building has very high ceilings and lots of original lofty details that put it in a different class than your average cookie-cutter condo. Plus, for as long as the J-51 tax abatement is in effect, the monthly expenses are just $525. Still, $1,300-plus a square foot on Broadway? Time will tell.

929 atlantic avenue clinton hill rendering

New York YIMBY published two renderings for the eight-story condo building coming to 929 Atlantic Avenue in Clinton Hill, one of Brookland Capital’s larger developments. Feingold and Gregory Architects are designing the building, which appears to be wedge-shaped and made of concrete. It is split in two by an elevator shaft and topped by a cheery yellow grid. The facade on one side of the building is angled, and juts out over the street below.

There will be 20 condos and 17,000 square feet. Apartments will range from studios to two-bedrooms, according to YIMBY.

Click through for another rendering. We think the design will improve this low-slung industrial stretch of Atlantic, which was rezoned for residential and taller buildings in 2007. What do you think of the look?

210 pacific street 1

Two condos at environmentally friendly new building 210 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill have hit the market, Curbed reported. The brass-clad building will have 10 units built to Passive House standards, as well as energy efficient appliances, a solar hot water system and an electric car charging station.

The two apartments listed right now are a 1,563-square-foot three-bedroom asking $2,495,000, and a 3,133-square-foot four-bedroom asking $5,250,000. Interior renderings show fairly typical upscale condos — big, open layouts, marble countertops, freestanding soaking tubs, white oak kitchen cabinets. Check out more interior renderings and an exterior rendering showing the facade’s irregular windows after the jump.

SBLM Architects designed the building, and Nava Companies is the developer.

The apartments are certainly large, but so are the price tags. What do you think of the finishes and prices?

Construction is expected to wrap this spring and listings will debut soon for the 12 condos being carved out of the upper floor offices of the Brooklyn Trust Company Building at 177 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights. Prices will start at $3,350,000 for a two-bedroom unit and go as high as $4,350,000 for a five-bedroom duplex, The New York Times reported.

The units, carved out of a landmark 1916 building, will be quirky. Perhaps the most unusual feature is that the top-floor units have only skylights and no windows. Click through to the Times to see a couple of shots of the interior under construction.

Barry Rice is the architect. Chase will continue to occupy the ground floor, but the vault will store bikes and strollers — and house a dog spa!

338 berry street rendering 22015

Curbed noticed a rendering and teaser site for the condo conversion at 338 Berry Street in Williamsburg, which will be called “Williamsberry” (yes, really). Other plans for the former noodle factory at the corner of South 5th Street have changed slightly: It will get an eighth story and 54 units, according to alteration permits first filed in 2013.

Paris Forino will design the interiors, and apartments will range from studios to four-bedrooms, as well as penthouse and “Skyhouse offerings,” per the teaser site. Elliman broker and “Million Dollar Listing” star Fredrik Eklund revealed that pricing will range from $575,000 to $3,500,000 and up for the three penthouses.

163-pospect-park-west-020315

A condo owner at 163-165 Prospect Park West in Park Slope says someone at the building’s management company allegedly embezzled the building’s reserve fund. Our tipster sent along this letter from the company, Guardian Property Management of Brooklyn. It reveals that “money may have been misappropriated from certain accounts which it [Guardian] maintains on behalf of its clients.”

Apparently Guardian is looking into the theft, and so is the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, according to our tipster. When we contacted the D.A.’s office, a spokeswoman said she could neither confirm nor deny Guardian was under investigation.

“There are at least eight other buildings under Guardian management in Brooklyn that also had their funds wiped out, I am told — perhaps even more,” the tipster added. He said that roughly $100,000 had been stolen from his building alone.

The building has 25 apartments. Guardian’s attorney did not return our calls for comment. Click through to see the letter from the management company.
