The views from this new listing on the 18th floor at 1 Northside Piers in Williamsburg are pretty darn impressive. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad also sports a private balcony in addition to all the “luxury” finishes you’d expect. The price of $1,495,000 actually seems perfectly reasonable for a 1,064-square-foot apartment in this location with this view (and by reasonable we mean relative to the current market).
The original details are the main attraction at 29 Tiffany Place in the Columbia Waterfront District. This fifth-floor pad sports beautiful wood columns and ceilings (which are 11 feet high). The kitchen has also been well renovated recently. One drawback of the 862-square-foot unit is the fact that it has only one bathroom. The common charges are fairly low though — and it’s just around the corner from Pok Pok.
The turn of the century apartment house at 582 2nd Street in Park Slope was converted from seven rentals to five extremely luxurious condos last year, and now the building is sold out, according to reps from Town Residential. Construction began last year at the development, which is named the Bennett House after the building’s architect, Thomas Bennett. The fifth and final unit, a 1,503-square-foot two-bedroom duplex priced at $1,695,000, went into contract last week. In total, the building will bring in more than $8,000,000 in condo sales, according to Town.
The family-sized apartments have two to four bedrooms each and occupy whole floors or more, ranging in size from 1,396 to more than 1,600 square feet. The windows are large and the ceilings high. Finishes include Vermont Ash hardwood floors and Calacatta marble countertops. Ramon Maislen from Phasa Development developed the four-story building, an ornate limestone Renaissance Revival constructed in 1909.
It’s painful to shell out a million bucks and only get a single floor of a townhouse, but such is life in several Brooklyn neighborhoods these days. At least in the case of this top-floor place (which is asking $1,025,000) you get a nice-looking product. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad has been very tastefully and thoroughly renovated. Being on the top floor also has its benefits: The skylight really enhances the kitchen and natural light in general seems ample.
Stribling has launched sales for eight new condos at 173 Amity Street in Cobble Hill, a limestone multi-family built in the late 19th century. Developer Lonicera Partners is gut renovating the nine existing apartments into eight two- and three-bedrooms, with two units occupying each floor of the four-story building. Four listings are up so far, with three two-bedrooms priced from $1,725,000 and a three-bedroom priced at $2,245,000.
Designed by PKSB Architects, units feature Bosch appliances, walnut and white lacquer cabinets, white ash hardwood floors, bay windows and marble bathrooms. One of the top floor apartments features a roof deck, and each unit has private storage, central A/C and a washer/dryer. A three-bedroom is already in contract, and closings are expected to start in late 2014.
The entire building last sold in 2012 for $4,525,000. Click through for interior renderings.
If you’re looking for a building in Park Slope with a strong modern pedigree, the Enrique Norten-designed development at 580 Carroll isn’t a bad place to start. In addition to clean lines and slick finishes, it has a large common yard and this unit comes with a private balcony. One potential drawback depending on your lifestyle: The kitchen is really just a kitchenette set into the wall of the living area. The asking price for the 1,270-square-foot apartment is $1,397,000.
The condo apartments in the old seminary building at the corner of Washington and Atlantic avenues have plenty of architectural details to recommend them but can present challenges when it comes to subdividing into living quarters. This three-level ground-floor pad has a showstopper of an archway leading out to the private yard as well as 14-foot vaulted ceilings. A portion of the apartment is mezzanined, with the kitchen tucked in underneath a sleeping area. The 1,094-square-foot unit is asking $795,000.
Another day, another $1,000-a-foot listing. This 16th-floor pad at the Forte in Fort Greene has a couple of bedrooms and bathrooms as well as great views of Manhattan. It’s also full of right angles, unlike many units in the building. The asking price for the 1,007-square-foot condo is $1,050,000.
You gotta love the wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows that define this new listing at 609 Myrtle Avenue in Bed Stuy. (Sorry, border stretchers, this is east of Classon.) The two-bedroom pad is in a newish building (built during the previous boom) and has a nice layout. It’s open plan with decent-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. Asking price for the 1,073-square-foot apartment is $759,000.
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.
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.
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.
