Listings for eight apartments at 550 Vanderbilt, the first condo building in the large and controversial Pacific Park/Atlantic Yards complex, have gone up online. The 17-story, 278-unit market-rate building is under construction on the corner of Vanderbilt and Dean Street.

The listings show the first interior renderings we have seen for the apartments. Prices range from $565,000 for a studio to $2,890,000 for a three-bedroom, 3.5 bath apartment. We expect more listings will go up over the next few days.

Sales launched last week at a 19th-century building at 229 Sackett Street in Carroll Gardens that has been converted to condos with unusually luxurious marble bathrooms and kitchens. Two of a total of four units at the four-story brick building are on the market, starting at $1,250,000 for a two-bedroom.

The two-bedroom unit, No. 3, takes up a whole floor. It measures 998 square feet and has two bathrooms and in-unit laundry.

A glitzy 10,000-square-foot town house with parking in a former stable at 177 Pacific in Cobble Hill has set a new record for Brooklyn, closing for $15,500,000, The New York Daily News reported. That works out to about $1,550 per square foot, also very high for the area.

The property seemed an unlikely candidate to beat out the previous record holder, the landmarked Greek Revival mansion at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, where Truman Capote once lived, and which sold for $12,500,000 in 2012.

The building at 177 Pacific went on the market in October of 2013 while it was mid-construction with an ask of $16,000,000. “This property is in the final stage of a custom renovation so no photos yet,” said the listing at the time. Only three stories, it looks ordinary from the outside, although it is 27 feet wide.

Inside, the amenities seem likely to appeal to a celebrity. No information was revealed about the buyer.

An unusual property, a landmarked row of seven apartment buildings on 14th Street, directly across the street from the Park Slope Armory YMCA in South Slope, is up for sale. The buildings at 409-421 14th Street, which have a total of 44 rental units, are being marketed for $16,500,000.

It’s a remarkable row of buildings. The larger apartment building at 409 14th Street has eight two- and three-bedroom units. The six three-story brick buildings look like small row houses and have one-bedroom units.

The buildings are all on one city tax lot and appear to have been designed to have one owner — they are all heated by one massive boiler in the eight-unit building. Combined, the buildings have 150 feet of frontage on 14th street.

The larger building at 409 14th Street was built around 1909 in the Colonial Revival style. The others are all Neo-Grec and were built around 1887 by Conlon & White. Some of the entrances were later altered in the Colonial Revival style.

Over the weekend six listings went up for the condo building at 233 34th Street in Greenwood Heights called 233 Greenwood. The units range from studios to two-bedroom apartments priced from $500,000 to $868,000.

The units have floor to ceiling windows, wood floors and an attractively spare design. A ground floor duplex, Unit 1D, is quite large at 1,688 square feet but the lower portion of that duplex is below grade. The two-bedroom units are between 815 and 905 square feet.

A vacant lot protected by roll-down gates at 1425 Fulton in Bed Stuy is up for sale and could become a 33-unit apartment building with stores on the ground floor.

The seller, who’s offering it through GFI Realty Services Inc., is looking to get a whopping $6,000,000 for the site, located between Marcy and Tompkins. Ambitious, perhaps, though the broker touts development rights allowing for a 22,365 square foot mixed-use building.

That works out to $268 per buildable square foot.

Sales have launched at Brookland Capital’s new condo building at 1094 Madison Street in Bushwick, with three out of eight planned units hitting the market.

The condos, all one-bedrooms, run from $425,000 for a 567-square-foot unit to $479,000 for a 896-square-foot duplex. The finishes and layouts look pretty typical of new-construction luxury rentals, although these are not rentals. They have big windows, open plan layouts, Caesarstone countertops, walnut vanities and custom cabinetry.

With prices under $500,000 and under $1,000 a square foot, they seem like they could appeal to first time buyers.

We think the modern metal exterior looks much nicer than typical new-construction buildings of its size in these parts (which tend to be Fedders three-family rental buildings). We don’t think it’s a bad fit for Bushwick, either, although Bed Stuy residents have objected to modern-style new construction in their mostly brownstone neighborhood just a few blocks from here.
