This new listing at Toren in Downtown Brooklyn is pretty striking. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad has a corner living room with expansive views of Flatbush Avenue and the Manhattan Bridge. High ceilings, a swanky master suite and sleek kitchen round out the offering. The asking price is $1,110,000, seemingly in line with the recent sale of a similarly sized two-bedroom on the 21st floor for $1,215,000.
While the furniture isn’t helping the sales cause, this new listing at 30 Main Street in Dumbo should have plenty of suitors. The big one-bedroom (plus windowless home office) has nearly 1,500 square feet of space and sports a generous master suite in addition to the large living/dining/kitchen area. The apartment doesn’t seem to have any views of Manhattan but the combination of high floor and southern exposure means there’s lots o’ light. Asking price: $1,649,000.
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.
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.
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.
We love the vibe of the apartments at the Ping Pong Factory at 110 Clifton Place. In particular, we dig the round concrete columns and big windows. There’s a second-floor two-bedroom that had been asking $900,000 currently in contract and this fourth-floor unit just hit the market with a price tag of $925,000. How do you think it stacks up against yesterday’s Grand Avenue listing we featured?
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?
