This new listing at One Brooklyn Bridge Park might be the nicest apartment we’ve seen in the waterfront building. (We’re not forgetting about the $32,000,000 penthouse but that’s sui generis and not really comparable.) This place has it all: four bedrooms, five bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, amazing views. This kind of place doesn’t come cheap though: Asking price is $7,950,000. Get out those checkbooks!
The high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows are the big selling points at this one-bedroom condo at 189 Schermerhorn Street (aka be@schermerhorn). The 15th-floor pad weighs in at only 662 square feet, though, making the asking price of $739,000 aggressive — especially when you consider that it traded for $425,000 in 2010. On the other hand, a 75 percent rise in value in four years isn’t out of line with a lot of other properties in the area. And those views sure are nice.
The Brooklyn building boom has finally unleashed a slew of new-development condos: The total number of new-development sponsor sales throughout Brooklyn shot up a whopping 84.5 percent in the second quarter vs. the first. Median sales prices for new-development condos increased 19 percent, while the median per square foot jumped 24 percent in the period, according to a report out Friday from real estate firm MNS.
No neighborhood is hotter than Williamsburg, where the median sales price for new developments shot up 52 percent, from $821 per square foot to $1,244 per square foot in the second quarter vs. the quarter before, as DNAinfo was the first to report. The median sale price for a new-development condo in Williamsburg is now $1,770,000. (more…)
This two-bedroom at 560 State Street, aka Jay-Z’s former building, just hit the market with an asking price of $799,000. The building has some historic charm but the apartment itself has been stripped of anything even referencing its 19th-century roots. All that’s left is a generic white box of an apartment, albeit one located right next to the biggest transportation hub in Brooklyn (and the Barclays Center).The listing recognizes that the finishes are a little less than compelling but that therein lies the buying opportunity. Do you agree?
Personally we prefer our townhouses to feel a little older, but the newer look of this triplex at 584 Pacific Street is bound to appeal to someone’s sense of cleanliness and order. The 2,050-square-foot condo has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in addition to four terraces. The proximity to the Barclays Center might be a deterrent to some though, especially at the asking price of $2,200,000.
We stumbled across some interior renderings for these nearly complete condos across the street from Green-Wood Cemetery. The five-story development at 233 34th Street will have 18 units spread across 15,021 square feet, according to new building permits. Amenities include nine off-street parking spaces, nine bike storage spots and a roof deck. A sign on the door calls them the “233 Greenwood Condominiums” and says they’ll be finished this summer.

A condo at 308 Waverly Avenue closed for $2,150,000, or $1,101.99 a square foot, in June — likely a record for a condo in Clinton Hill. The unit is hardly a typical condo, though: It’s actually an entire carriage house set on a larger property at 315 Clinton Avenue. (more…)
This new listing at 145 Prospect Park West is pretty basic as far as the apartment goes — no historic detail to speak of and middle-of-the-road finishes — but being on the park is definitely worth something as is the common roofdeck. Asking price on the two-bedroom, one-bathroom pad is $729,000 and the monthly common charges (including taxes) come to $619.
This new condo listing at 94 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights is a real looker. The two-level pad has lots of original detail and benefits greatly from having windows along the entire eastern side of the building. The 1,417-square-foot apartment has a separate dining room in addition to the living room at the front of the parlor floor; it’s also got a master suite on the second floor at the rear of the apartment. The asking price is $1,750,000 and it’s also available for rent for $7,500 a month.
As this listing shows, your real estate dollars will go a little further in Bay Ridge than in north or Brownstone Brooklyn. This 993-square-foot condo at 10002 4th Avenue is asking $675,000 — not bad for a new place with great light and views. There’s an open house this Sunday from 11:30 to 1.
We suspect there will be lots of demand for this three-bedroom condo at 133 Sterling Place in Park Slope. At 1,792 square feet, it’s sized for a family and the location and condition are going to be in a lot of shoppers’ sweet spots. The asking price of $2,500,000 is double what it went for at the bottom of the market in 2009 but actually sounds about right in this market.
The eco-friendly and pricey condo building at 255 Columbia Street seemed just about finished when we stopped by earlier this week. And unlike some new construction, it looks exactly like the rendering! The six-story, 13-unit Passive House building even features plant-filled window boxes on the balconies.
Designed by Loadingdock5 and developed by HPI Development, the energy-efficient development has triple-paned windows and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery. Amenities include a landscaped common garden, a bike room and private storage for each unit.
Sales launched in September with prices ranging from $900,000 to $2,000,000, and only one is left — a two-bedroom, two-bath asking $995,000. The other 12 are in contract, according to brokers from Stribling. How do you like the look?
