This one-bedroom condo is one of several units up for sale at 18th Ward, a new condo development at the outer edge of Bushwick, near the Ridgewood border, at 303-309 Cooper Street. (Slogan: “On the cusp of Bushwick hip and Ridgewood cool.”)
Constructed by Boaz Gilad’s Brookland Capital, the four-building development will have 27 units split among four buildings when it’s finished.
This one is $399,000 — somewhere in the low to mid range for the complex. Prices of units on the market in the complex range from $329,000 for a studio to a two-bedroom penthouse with a terrace for $625,000.
The design is clean and sleek, with some “pieces of flair,” to quote Office Space. These include the gray penny tile backsplash in the kitchen, the wallpapered accent wall in the bedroom, and some framed wallpaper in the living room of the model unit.
The kitchen is small but attractive, with white lacquered cabinets and white quartz stone countertops.
At 10 feet wide, neither the bedroom nor the living room is huge, but they’re livable, especially for the young singles or couples likely to be interested in these. Floor to ceiling windows are a plus, and there’s a washer/dryer hookup — no machines though; it’s a BYO deal.
While a roster of amenities and common spaces is the trend among recent building launches, none are mentioned here. (No roof deck, Boaz? No gaming lounge?) Common charges for this unit are $329, taxes $269.
Sales launched on four units in August, and all are still available. The location at the far end of Bushwick — near the graveyards and a massive Superfund site just over the Queens border — may well be a factor.
Nonetheless, new spots like the Houdini Pizza Kitchen Laboratory and the beer garden Nowadays are popping up in the vicinity. And the Halsey L stop is within a reasonable distance.
Think these will move? What do you think of the location, the unit and the ask?
