WASHINGTON CROSSING  

Developed by Two Trees Management (the people who brought you The Sweeney Building and The Clocktower), 70 Washington is, in a word, awesome. Lucky home buyers here in DUMBO’s landmark waterfront district will have the downtown Manhattan skyline as virtually their own front yard. 70 Washington’s 259 oversized lofts offer extra-large windows, high ceilings and bamboo flooring throughout. There are also nine duplexes and 17 penthouses, almost all with huge terraces and home offices. While these homes range in size from nearly 700 sf to 3,441 sf, luxe appointments are standard. Kitchens include stainless-steel appliances from Sub-Zero, Viking and Thermador, as well as Marvel wine coolers. The glass-tiled baths with Dornbracht fixtures are stunning; master baths have Jacuzzis and walk-in rimless glass-door showers. These days it’s pretty much a given that many residential buildings sport rooftop sundecks, but 70 Washington gets extra credit for the 22 cabanas. Prices begin at $615,000.

ROOMS WITH A VIEW

Given that half of the dazzling lofts at 50 Pine Street sold even before the sales office opened in late July, smart buyers seeking a heady downtown vibe will need to be fast on their feet to purchase what’s left. With covetable views down Pine Street to Broadway, this 20-unit residence will grant you palatial living to the nth degree. It includes a duplex and a penthouse, each with substantial outdoor space. Inside the century-old building you’ll find an excellent mix of contemporary design and old-world sensibility - from ceilings well over 10 ft and rich oak floors, to ebonized oak Nabytek windows and LG front-loading stackable washer/dryers. Kitchens have honed black granite countertops, rich walnut custom cabinets, LG French-door titanium refrigerators and stainless-steel appliances from Jenn-Air, Bosch and Panasonic. Master baths have wall-mounted ebonized oak Rifra vanities, oversized walk-in glass-door showers and Metro mosaic white floors. What’s left is priced from $1.1 million to $2.7 million.

“It’s little wonder that people are attracted to the lifestyle that lofts afford,” says Clifford Finn, director of Citi Habitats Marketing Group. “Open spaces, interesting features, state-of-the-art amenities and great finishes offer both buyers and renters an incredible brand of urban living. And while the notion of loft living originated downtown in places like Soho and Tribeca, more office and warehouse conversions, as well as new constructions, are taking place all over the City.”
