130 jackson street east williamsburg 92014

This listing at 130 Jackson Street is a good reminder they don’t make ‘em like they used to. The Civil War-era foundry sports some of the most impressive wood columns and beams we’ve ever seen and the ceilings on the ground floor of this apartment are a generous 13 feet high. There’s technically only one bedroom but the lower level space, dubbed the “spa room” in the listing, is clearly usable as a sleeping chamber. Finishes look high-quality and modern. Asking price? $1,536,000. There happens to be an open house Tuesday from 5:45 to 7:15 pm.

1329 east 17th street midwood 42014

Five months after launching sales, contracts have been signed for every unit at the Gray Stone Condos in Midwood, a spokesperson for Aptsandlofts.com told us. The six-story, 10-unit property at 1329 East 17th Street has one-bedrooms with home offices priced from $395,000 to $435,000. They also have central air, washer/dryer hookups and private outdoor space.

At about 815 square feet each, the prices work out to less than $533 a square foot — considerably more affordable than some parts of Brooklyn but potentially more expensive than an older apartment in Midwood. We won’t know what buyers paid until the sales close and hit public records.

201 north 11th street williamsburg 92014

The scaffolding has come down from the boutique condo development at 201 North 11th Street near McCarren Park in Williamsburg we’ve been following. And it looks like the side wall is not rusted steel, as commenters had speculated, but rust-colored brick or tile. And the front facade does look like it is wrapped in wood.

The six-story, four-unit development has three duplexes and a penthouse, as well as a small garage for one or two cars on the ground floor, as previously reported. Atelier New York Architecture designed the building. Build 360 is developing the project, and Corcoran will market the condos once construction finishes.

Check out a few more shots and a closeup of the exterior finishes after the jump. What do you think of the look so far?

392 3rd street park slope 92014

The original detail that still exists in the parlor floor of this princely duplex at 392 3rd Street is lovely. We’re not wild about some the renovation decisions however. In particular the surfeit of recessed lighting and exposed brick clashes with the moldings, fireplaces and wood architectural features. Sure, it earns its luxury badge honestly but it doesn’t work as a whole in our view. And for $2,495,000 we’d hope for a more unified design.

18 dikeman street red hook 92014

This new-construction condo looks a little McMansion-y, but it comes with the Red Hook discount. The three-bedroom, two-bath condo clocks in at 1,296 square feet and also has a reasonable amount of outdoor space, including a narrow side garden and a front patio. The living, dining and kitchen are one big space, but it doesn’t look crowded. Since this is Red Hook, it’s a mile from the closest subway stop at Smith and 9th streets. Asking price is $849,000, or $655 a square foot, along with $288 in monthly maintenance.

440 atlantic avneue 1

Contracts have been signed at seven of the eight condos at 440 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, which are still under construction after hitting the market five months ago. Developer and architect Alex Barrett, of Barrett Design and Development, sent us these photos of Unit 3A, a two-bedroom, two-bath asking $1,300,000 and the only apartment still left on the market. A business has also signed a contract for the ground floor commercial space, but we don’t know who it is yet. Construction began last year on the six-story building, which replaced two decaying townhouses, and is expected to finish by the end of the year.

The modern and industrial condos are made out of cast-in-place concrete over steel deck, and feature wide plank white oak floors, powder-coated steel cabinetry and private basement storage. Click through to see more construction shots.

429 kent avenue 1

The Dutch-designed, Chinese-developed Oosten condos debuted at 429 Kent Avenue in south Williamsburg this week, with one-bedrooms starting at $710,000. Halstead has 26 listings live for the block-long complex at South 8th and Kent , including four that were listed earlier this month and have already entered contract.

One-bedrooms range in price from $710,000 to $1,050,000; two-bedroom, two-bath units start at $1,185,000; and two three-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplexes are asking $2,660,000 and $2,770,000. There are also two large floor-through lofts with three bedrooms and 3.5 baths each priced at $3,470,000 and $3,620,000, and three four-bedroom, 3.5-bath townhouses priced from $3,375,000 to $3,635,000.

Designed by Piet Boon and WASA Studio, the development offers the full gamut of luxury amenities, including a children’s playroom, a rooftop reflecting pool and roof deck, swimming pool and parking. XIN Development Group, the American branch of Chinese developer Xinyuan Real Estate Company, is behind the 216-unit project.

These look miles better than the average Williamsburg development to us. What do you think of the design and pricing? More interior renderings after the jump!

540 vanderbilt avenue prospect heights

Forest City Ratner has filed new building applications for a third, conventionally built building at 540 Vanderbilt Avenue. The development comes hot on the heels of filings for a second new building, 535 Carlton Avenue, the state’s plans to seize seven Atlantic Yards properties under eminent domain, and lawsuits over the first tower, B2.

The complex between Pacific and Dean Streets will rise 17 stories and house 282 units. Designed by Cook+Fox, the project will include 326,047 square feet of residential space and 4,731 square feet of ground floor retail. (more…)

broken angel exterior 4-6 downing street

The Broken Angel condo development now has a teaser site and is prepping to launch sales next month, because the state’s attorney general recently approved its offering plan, according to developer and architect Alex Barrett. The former tenement at 4-8 Downing Street in Clinton Hill, once one of Brooklyn’s most unusual landmarks, now bears little trace of former owner and artist Arthur Wood’s fantastical creation — other than a drawing of an angel, a reference to the building’s past, in a new mural on the construction fence.

At 4 Downing, partitions are framed, and workers are installing windows, basic plumbing, electrical and sprinklers. Eventually, the four-story building will house eight condos, according to alteration permits. Next door at 8 Downing, they’re about to start pouring the concrete foundation for a four-story, two-unit building.

Barrett bought the property for $4,100,000 in January. Click through to see photos of the construction progress so far.

420 12th street park slope 92014

This new listing at the Ansonia in the South Slope looks very appealing. The duplex has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms with nice original details like brick walls and wood ceilings throughout. There’s also a gigantic kitchen. The monthly maintenance is $1,377 and the asking price is $1,795,000. There’s no precise square footage given but we suspect the asking multiple comes out north of $1,000 a foot.

337 grand avenue clinton hill 92014

With brownstones on Grand Avenue now priced well over $2,000,000, the half a brownstone at No. 337 might at first glance seem to be attractive at its asking price of $995,000. Potential buyers should keep in mind however that, despite efforts to add some traditional detailing, the 1,010-square-foot duplex is located in a townhouse built in 1989 and whose footprint is quite a bit smaller than many of its older neighbors. The result is a price per square foot just shy of $1,000. That seems a bit aggressive to us given the product. What do you think?

345 carroll street 1

Although the Regency Carts building isn’t completely demolished, listings with new renderings have gone up for the luxury condo development that will replace it at 345 Carroll Street. Curbed spotted the first five listings for the apartments, designed by Gluck+. They range in price from $1,645,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bath to $2,950,000 for a four-bedroom, three-bath. The 32-unit building will have seven penthouses, six garden duplexes and 18 apartments with outdoor space.

Amenities include a landscaped courtyard with bocce courts, vegetable plots and cabanas for purchase, as well as a dog washing station and fitness center. Back in June, PR reps for the development told us sales had launched, not long after a sales office opened at 396 Court Street. The developer is Sterling Equities, which paid $12,500,000 for the Regency Carts site last year.

Click through to see more interior renderings. We’re not sure if the building is in Flood Zone A, but the units look extremely luxurious. The building will be clad in bluestone and the developers are also planning a “wildflower meadow,” with plantings a la the Highline, as well as cabanas that will be available for purchase, among other amenities.

What do you think of the spaces and prices?
