SWEET SIXTEEN

No design flourish has been spared in the construction of Eight By Eight, a dramatic 16-condo addition to the stylish Park Slope neighborhood. “Duplex penthouses have huge private terraces, large walls of windows, and double-height vaulted ceilings with peaked windows just beneath the roof - a classic architectural touch,” says Highlyann Krasnow, executive vice-president of The Developers Group. “Many of the units have tremendous rear views of the New York City skyline, which is unusual for Park Slope.”

Eight By Eight consists of two adjacent eight-family buildings on Eighth Street near Fifth Avenue. Every apartment has generous outdoor space; first and second floor units have private yards and terraces. Rich ash floors are offset by sleek porcelain tiling. Kitchens feature custom cabinetry, white quartz countertops, the latest appliances from Bosch and, most fabulous of all, versatile movable islands. All units have washer/dryer hookups. 25-year tax abatement. From $625,000.

OLD CHARM, NEW LUXURY

Classic brownstone charm meshes with today’s condo luxury at 71 Carroll Street, a 13-unit newcomer to the red-hot Columbia Street waterfront district, a block from Carroll Gardens. Says Rocco Basile, project manager of the Brooklyn-based Basile Group, developers of the graceful five-story building, “We designed it in the old manner but with a modern twist.” He points out the brownstone-style exterior with its arched windows, glass balconies and ornamental cornices, as well as the 1940s glamour of the lobby and corridors. Home interiors, however, are very 21st century, featuring the most state-of-the-art appliances and comfortable amenities.

There will be a sprawling LOMA Spa on the ground level. 71 Carroll Street is a short stroll to the cafes, boutiques and antique shops of Carroll Gardens. NY Water Taxi also offers convenient ferry service to Midtown and Wall Street, as well as Brooklyn Heights. From $475,000 to $1.8 million.

    FROM WAREHOUSE TO PENTHOUSE

Williamsburg’s trendy Northside is about to get its first true condominium loft building, 55 Berry Street. This converted six-story, brick and concrete former warehouse is on a historic block dotted with carriage houses, in a neighborhood rich with restaurants, boutiques, galleries and bars.

Andy Gerringer, managing director of Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Development Marketing Group, says the 35 spacious loft condos are certain to impress with 12.5ft ceilings and columns. New windows allow for East River and Manhattan views. Its seven penthouses have sweeping private terraces with spectacular vistas. All residents share an exclusive second-floor roof garden.

Noted interior designer Andres Escobar has dressed these spacious lofts in comfort and style, with wide-plank maple flooring throughout, spectacular open kitchens with floating center islands, custom cherry cabinetry and high-end appliances, plus two baths per unit fitted with porcelain tiling and stone countertops. From $710,000 to $1,390,000.

“With the Brooklyn Bridge Park Plan about to be approved, and the pending arrival of Fairway and Whole Foods, Brooklyn continues to be a tremendous residential destination,” says David Kramer, principal of The Hudson Companies. “Home-buyers have an amazing spectrum of choices, from co-ops to brownstones to full-service high-rise condos.”
