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 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?

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.

The Toll Brothers has released the full website for Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park, its lavish, 108-condo project, as Buzz Buzz Home was the first to note. The development at 90 Furman Street is also offering two new apartments — a one-bedroom for $2,600,000 and a three-bedroom for $3,350,000.

Floor plans for one- and three-bedrooms are now up on the website. We think we spot a couple of new renderings too. 

The luxury apartments include features like 600-year-old heartwood floors reclaimed from local warehouses, high-efficiency and exterior LED lighting, automatic solar shade systems, 18-foot ceilings in most living rooms, and terraces. The kitchens have Gaggenau appliances, Calacutta Tucci marble countertops, 18-bottle under-counter wine storage and odorless under-counter composting units.

Amenities range from the typical — a fitness center, concierge, lounge — to the more unique — a pet wash and a meditation room. Pricing starts at $1,050,000 for a 999-square-foot one-bedroom.

It has original herringbone floors in a 26-foot living room, according to the listing. Unit 2 is a two-bedroom apartment with a marble bathroom asking $999,999. Unit 3 is a two-bedroom, 1.5-bath apartment with exclusive roof rights, priced at $1,200,000. Douglas Elliman is handling sales.

The current owner, an LLC, bought the building in May for $2,764,000.
