WILLIAMSBURG RISING

Industrial charm meets contemporary attitude in the sleek five-story Dunham, the newest luxury condo on Williamsburg’s fashionable Southside. “The building’s boutique design will captivate you at first sight,” says Highlyann Krasnow of The Developers Group, noting the dramatic glass and metal paneled façade. “In addition to creating elegant streamlined interiors, the builders took a lot of time with the public areas,” she adds, citing the curved hallways and the sanctuary-like common terrace. Gorgeous penthouses boast open-riser staircases and generous outdoor spaces. All homes feature open kitchens appointed with glass, stainless steel and wood; bathrooms are finished in ultramodern limestone.

The Southside is loaded with enough restaurants, galleries and shops to keep you in the mix. And since this chic corner building on South 6th Street provides parking, you can also enjoy the luxury of zipping back and forth to the city, the country or the beach without a second thought. From $490,000 to $1.295 million.

BROOKLYN BY THE SEA

The Mediterranean resort lifestyle has come to Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay with the arrival of La Mer Villas at the marina, a picturesque gated complex of 19 individual-access townhouses. Set on a vast triangular piazza, adjacent to a collection of moored yachts, La Mer Villas is the first development of its kind in the area. “It’s very high-end European in design,” says Corcoran’s Cheryl Nielsen-Saaf, who heads up sales for the project. “We see it as the perfect getaway for New Yorkers who don’t want the Hamptons. And we’re also getting a lot of European interest.”

In addition to the award-winning architecture, including finely detailed interiors with high ceilings and hardwood floors, townhouse owners will also enjoy private terraces or roof decks and sweeping water views - not to mention a fantastic choice of restaurants, cafés, clubs and shops right next-door. From $750,000 to $2.3 million.

    LEAFY AND LUXE

The Simone, an ultrasophisticated 38-condo residence, is about take root in the verdant environs of Windsor Terrace, the coveted neighborhood near Park Slope. The striking five-story building was developed by the Brooklyn-based Basile Builders Group and designed by Adam Naim and Sebastian Giuliano of Brooklyn’s Bricolage Design. “The urban/suburban setting gave us an opportunity to blend gardens, terraces and balconies with floor-to-ceiling glass and dramatic open spaces in each apartment,” says Rocco Basile, project manager for Basile Builders.

These 1, 2 and 3BR loft apartments offer luxury interiors with splendid open kitchens and top-of-the-line appliances. Much attention has been given to colors and textures of building finishes such as dark bamboo-strand flooring and smooth toweled concrete. The Simone even has a concierge and indoor parking. Windsor Terrace, only nine blocks wide, is part of a flourishing neighborhood lined with exotic cafés and restaurants. Sales begin early this spring. From the $500,000s.

“We’re very bullish on Brooklyn, which has more construction on a unit basis than any other borough,” says Hal Henenson, executive director of Prudential Douglas Elliman Development Marketing Group. “As people get priced out of Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope and Dumbo, they’re finding bargains in the less gentrified areas. We did a loft conversion in Bushwick we’d never have thought of doing a few years ago, and had a waiting list of over 600.”
