A GLASS ACT  

A buzz is growing in Brooklyn around The GlassHouse on Green Street, a sleek 10-unit condominium poised to become the most exclusive address in booming Greenpoint. It stands on a quiet street one block from the newly approved East River Esplanade, and offers some of the most refined and comfortable living in the borough. “Along with its elegant contemporary design, high-end finishes, and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, you get very good value and incredible convenience,” says Hal Henenson, executive director of Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Development Marketing Group. “You’re two blocks from the subway, fifteen minutes from Union Square, five minutes from the tunnel.”

All ten airy, clean-lined 2BRs, including a penthouse and a garden duplex, have double-height living room ceilings and mezzanines. The open-style kitchens are designed for cooking convenience and effortless entertaining, while roomy, spa-like baths with Philippe Starck Duravit waterclosets and Zuma rectangle tubs are havens for pampering. Prices start at $549,000.

IT'S A JOY

J Condominium is a new 33-story luxury tower that will soar above DUMBO, Brooklyn’s hot waterfront neighborhood. Just steps from the river, this dramatic newcomer rivals its neighbors with sweeping views, sprawling spaces and unparalleled extras.

“We offer a level of finishes and amenities with a distinctive profile never before seen in Brooklyn,” says Kim Nash, J Condo’s project manager. “J Condo will be a landmark on the Brooklyn skyline for years to come.”

Designed by award-winning architecture firm Gruzen Samton, LLP, J Condo features large, curved glass walls recalling the great sailing-ship era in New York Harbor. From windows, balconies and set-back terraces, you’ll take in the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, the Manhattan skyline and downtown Brooklyn. Interior finishes, selected by designer Andres Escobar, include hardwood floors, marble baths and Grohe fixtures. There are 267 apartments (studios to 3BRs), priced from the low $300,000s to over $2 million.

  HOT BOCCA

A 50-condo beauty called The Smith is coming soon to the heart of Brooklyn, where three hip, flourishing neighborhoods meet. This handsome, high-end brickfront development by Leviev Boymelgreen offers 1, 2 and 3BR residences on nine floors, atop a 93-room hotel with ground-floor retail spaces.

“It’s in an ideal spot,” says Boymelgreen’s senior development manager Danny Kim, referring to BOCOCA (an anagram for the cross-section that encompasses Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens). “You have the great restaurants of Smith Street, Atlantic Avenue with its antique shops and décor stores, BAM is nearby, and with all the transportation lines so close, all of Manhattan is within easy reach.”

The celebrated interior designer Nick Dine has created chic contemporary spaces defined by 10ft ceilings and oversized windows. The Smith also boasts attended underground parking. Condos will go on sale soon at $500,000 and up.

“There’s no question Brooklyn is the next frontier in development,” says Kenneth Horn, president of Alchemy Properties Inc. “One sign is that we’re seeing a New York mentality in the finishes people expect. We’re using high-end Poggenpohl cabinets, Viking appliances, lots of stone and wood… Also, between Brooklyn and Manhattan it’s a remarkably easy commute!”
