This new listing at 154 Broadway, a four-story loft building that was converted to residential back in 2007, has a ton of space (2,600 square feet) and other amenities you’d hope for in a loft (high ceilings, big windows). This place also has a lower level as well as a backyard and a deck. The only real negative is the fact that it’s on the ground floor with the front facing the street. Asking price is $2,500,000.

Asking prices are soaring at Brooklyn’s (arguably) sexiest building, the Richard Meier-designed On Prospect Park. Take this recent listing, a 1,952-square-foot on the sixth floor.

The sixth-floor pad,which sports views over the park, is asking $2,849,000. That’s $1,460 a foot, for those of you keeping score at home!

Developer Brookland Capital gut renovated a castle-like multifamily building with turrets at 875 St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights, and transformed it into six condos that hit the market yesterday, according to Curbed. Inside, most of the house’s original detail is gone, but the condos have a bit of old-fashioned charm in restored stained glass windows, exposed brick, bay window dining nooks and new herringbone floors.

Asking prices start at $449,000 for a 560-square-foot one-bedroom and go as high as $659,000 for a 1,327-square-foot one-bedroom, two-bath duplex. Three of the units also have terraces.

Brookland bought the seven-unit apartment house last February for $1,400,000. Designed by Langston & Dahlander, the 3,872-square-foot building was constructed in 1891.

This pretty three-bedroom, three-bath duplex in Park Slope nicely combines new renovations with some older details. While the ornate woodwork in the dining room is lovely, the exposed brick throughout the condo might not suit everyone’s tastes. The 2,700-square-foot pad also comes with a private roof deck, private garden and laundry on the lower floor. Do you think it will go for ask at $2,100,000?

This new listing at The Edge in Williamsburg is a nice one to be sure — river views, modern appliances and great common amenities — but it’s still a one-bedroom apartment that’s asking $995,000. That’s about $1,200 a foot for those keeping score at home. A lot of dough, to be sure, but that’s pretty much the going rate for this location. In fact, some larger units have gone for higher valuations than that recently.

This 10th-floor one-bedroom is probably the slickest looking pad we’ve seen at Downtown Brooklyn’s Oro. The 1,176-square-foot apartment was “custom designed” by an architect, according to the listing, and it shows. In addition to the custom floors and built-ins, there’s a wall of windows and an eating nook too. Asking price is $1,150,000.

This newly listed one-bedroom at 359 16th Street in the South Slope made its debut at an open house Sunday. Other than the modest balcony, the condo has a very basic but sensible layout, though we suspect the artful photographs make it look bigger than it actually is.

The asking price is $545,000. Did anyone see it yesterday?

The antidote to sky-high electrical bills in new construction condos may be architect Robert Scarano’s green condo project at 67 Brighton 1 Lane in Brighton Beach. The building will sell energy back to the grid, and residents should have very low or no utility bills, as we wrote in November. There will also be composting toilets and a hot tub, said a story today in The New York Daily News.

In November, we wrote that marketing had started for the building, with six units priced from $295,000 for a studio to $795,000 for a two-bedroom loft with outdoor space. The New York Daily News says sales will start in April, with prices slightly higher than they were in November. Prices will start at $325,000 for a studio and go up to $850,000 for a two-bedroom with two baths. The building does not yet have its certificate of occupancy and no listings have gone up yet.

The development cost about $600 per square foot to build, or about two times the average in New York City, according to the Daily News.

Want to know how fast and far the Williamsburg condo market has moved in the past couple of years? Take a look at the price history on this top-floor unit at 55 Berry Street. After selling for $1,100,000 in 2012, the 1,245-square-foot pad was put on the market for $1,750,000 in May of 2013. After a couple months, the listing was pulled and just re-emerged again last week with a price tag of $1,695,000. It’s a nice place, to be sure, with high ceilings, modern kitchen and a private 1,000-square-foot roof deck. Can’t wait to see what it goes for.

This third-floor condo at 104 Saint Marks Place in Park Slope just hit the market last week with an asking price of $899,000. We love the look of the building from the outside and the living room has three exposures and hence nice light and air; there’s a cool wall of windows in the strangely proportioned master bedroom too.

The apartment layout is suboptimal, though, with the single bathroom nowhere near either of the bedrooms. We can also spot some Home Depot doors on the closets, always a turn-off but easily remedied.
