This two-and-a-half-bedroom condo is renovated from top to bottom, and at 915 square feet it's got a price tag of $436 a square foot. Which is notably low for Brooklyn, though not necessarily for the exact locale — which is Hull Street in Ocean Hill, not far from the Broadway Junction train stop.
This two-bedroom condo sits on the 19th floor of the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank at 1 Hanson Place, whose clock tower has long dominated the now-morphing Brooklyn skyline. It’s got some killer views as a result, with a nice pair of arched windows in the living room that take in New York Harbor and the lower Manhattan skyline.
If you pay taxes on a condo or co-op in this city, you may feel like you’re getting screwed. NYC has a bafflingly complicated property tax structure that’s inherently unfair to co-op and condo owners. And the city knows it.
Which is why they created the co-op and condo tax abatement. Taking advantage of this break can shave hundreds to thousands of dollars a year off of a condo owner or co-op shareholder’s tax bills. Here’s how.
The wait is almost over: Phase 1 of the townhouses at Navy Green are within weeks of occupancy. By the time the snow from this blizzard melts, you could be settling into one of these airy three- or four-bedroom homes, each featuring over 3,000 square feet of space.
We recently went on a tour of one of the homes, and when we weren’t too busy daydreaming of living here ourselves, we took plenty of pictures of the interiors for you to check out. Come on inside!
Finally, a little relief for the long-suffering condo owners at troubled building 85 Adams Street in Dumbo. After years of litigation, two once-prolific luxury developers accused of fraud have reached an agreement with the state to repair and relinquish control of the building and two others in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, one of the developers, Shaya Boymelgreen, remains under investigation for fraud at the building and others elsewhere in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
This 1,809-square-foot unit is the first resale at Sackett Union, the Carroll Gardens condo building that opened its doors at 291 Union Street in 2013. It’s got three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a daunting price tag: $2,750,000, or just above $1,500 a square foot.
The place is enormous, bigger even than an old-school co-op, but with a modern layout. Among other things, that means an open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen, measuring 30 feet wide, with a wall of windows.
Brooklyn condos don’t get much more regal than this 10-room showstopper in Park Slope’s Montauk Club. Grand, richly detailed and in flawless condition, it’s a sight to behold, from the banks of stained glass windows and the coffered ceilings to the columns and the fireplace mantels.
The palatial unit takes up an entire floor of the 19th-century building, spreading 4,200 square feet. There are five bedrooms, four bathrooms (two half and two full), giant living and dining rooms, and an outdoor terrace overlooking Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza.
If you’re in the market for a multi-million-dollar condo, you could do a lot worse than this three-bedroom at 360 Furman Street, aka One Brooklyn Bridge Park. It offers a vista that’s hard to top, with massive banks of windows that look out on Brooklyn Bridge Park and the harbor.
You might think it’s impossible, but decent two-bedrooms priced under $650,000 do indeed exist in our fair borough. Sure, the four we’re highlighting here are slightly far afield — in Bed Stuy, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and Crown Heights — but the quartet is modern, clean, and move-in ready.
Which would you choose?
