The penthouse at 85 Adams Street has just become available for the asking price of $2,600,000. There are three bedrooms — two of them big — and two bathrooms.
The real draw, however, is the large living and dining area that opens onto a 550-square-foot private terrace with killer views of pretty much everything. The interior square footage is only 1,785 so it’ll be interesting to see if they get their price.
Wow, the camera sure loves this freshly renovated condo at 225 Eastern Parkway. The 2,028-square-foot apartment has three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a breakfast nook. The main living/dining space is also unusually large and there’s lots of light despite being on the second floor. Asking price is $1,750,000. That’s more than $850 a foot in Crown Heights. Impressive if they can get it.
Ten of the 12 Williamsburg Townhomes at 131-153 North 3rd Street are in contract, broker MNS told us. Closings should begin shortly, as soon as the attorney general approves the condo offering plan. The two units left, 139 and 141, are both asking $2,380,000.
Since the single-family row houses went on the market in July 2013, a handful of other new single-family townhouse developments have popped up in North Brooklyn. Although the Williamsburg Townhouses are only 14 feet wide, the living rooms run the full width of the house in the back and overlook the gardens. The townhomes were designed by a former dean of Princeton University School of Architecture.
They are centrally located between Bedford and Berry streets.
This classic six at 255 Eastern Parkway just hit the market with an asking price of $1,095,000. That comes out to almost $800 a foot, a pretty serious ask for Crown Heights. Personally we’d like to see a sexier kitchen for that price but otherwise this place is a prewar gem located just a stone’s throw from the Brooklyn Museum. Given that neighbor 5A just closed for $1,930,000, or $965 a square foot, this should be a slam dunk.
The apartments in the old Board of Ed building at 110 Livingston Street are generally very well-proportioned and this two-bedroom is no exception. Weighing in at 1,100 square feet, the 11th-floor condo has high ceilings, big windows and two real bedrooms. The standard Two Trees kitchens that come with the place are also very nice. The price tag is $1,200,000, well north of the $1,000-a-foot barrier, and the monthly expenses come to $716 for now.
Sales have started and interior renderings are now available for 14 condos at the former 84th precinct police station at 72 Poplar Street in Brooklyn Heights, as Curbed was the first to report. The two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments range in size from 1,424 to 3,368 square feet and are asking from $1,600,000 to around $6,000,000. Designed by Freyer Architects, the building will feature a gym, lounge, bike storage, virtual doorman and parking. Some of the apartments will have outdoor space.
The former garage next door will become a two-story townhouse with a one-story addition, a one-car garage, a private, landscaped rear garden and a roof deck. Construction began during the summer of 2012, after Landmarks approved a two-story addition, and is scheduled to wrap up in the next month or two, according to the developer, the Daten Group. Move-ins will start this summer.
This 1,100-square-foot loft at the Newswalk building in Prospect Heights just hit the market with an asking price of $799,000. It’s a nice open rectangle of a space with a wall of windows and high ceilings. It’s not exactly made for family living but would be a great pad for a single or a childless couple!
Construction is chugging along at 255 Columbia Street, a Passive House boutique condo development with 13 units in the Columbia Street Waterfront neighborhood. Six of the building’s planned seven stories have risen so far, and alteration permits indicate the finished product will be 19,700 square feet.
HPI Development began marketing four of the units in October, and prices will range from $900,000 to $2,000,000. Designed by Loadingdock5, the super-insulated building will feature triple-paned windows and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.
Each condo has its own balcony. High-end details include 4-inch-wide American walnut flooring, honed white Carrara marble mosaic tile floors and Calacatta marble counters in the master baths.
The three copper-detailed buildings at 260-264 Greene Avenue in Clinton Hill are finished. They will be condos, developer Brookland Capital told us. Each building has three units, for a total of nine condos altogether. The buildings are waiting for their certificates of occupancy. Click through to the jump for a closeup. How do you like the way they turned out?
Five-bedroom apartments are pretty hard to come by, so it’s a little surprising that this one at One Brooklyn Bridge Park has sat on the market for over a year. Although only on the second floor, the 5,000-square-foot pad has great views and lotsa light.
Parts of the apartment have 20-foot ceilings and there’s a private terrace overlooking the park. The price has not budged since hitting that market 13 months ago for $4,995,000.
Alloy Development has gotten the ball rolling with new building applications for the vacant waterfront site next to the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo, where Brooklyn Bridge Park asked developers to design a mixed-use condo development. The developer filed a plan exam application Friday for the 12-story build at 1 John Street.
There will be 42 condos spread across 117,648 square feet of residential space, 3000 square feet of commercial space and 2,551 square feet reserved for a Brooklyn Children’s Museum annex. Amenities for the 123,199-square-foot development will include storage and a roof deck. There’s no parking listed on the permits, although the original RFP asked for up to 110 parking spaces.
One John Street has a teaser site up that reveals two-bedrooms will start at $2,000,000, three-bedrooms at $3,000,000 and four-bedrooms at $3,500,000. Alloy is partnering with Monadnock Development on the project, the fourth Dumbo project on which the two companies have teamed up.
They’re also working on 185 Plymouth Street, 192 Water Street and the group of modernist townhouses at Pearl and Water Streets.
