  HIP SQUARE

Combining classical grace with cutting-edge, Roebling Square is a much-anticipated newcomer to Williamsburg. The four-story, 36-condo building has five separate entrances, creating a sense of contemporary townhome-style living. Most of the homes have gardens, terraces or balconies. “While architectural tradition plays beautifully in this brick-facade building with its crown of dormer windows, the overall design is clean and elegant, and the interiors are sleek and stylish,” says Hal Henenson, executive director of Prudential Douglas Elliman Development Marketing Group. Top-floor units feature mezzanines and double-height ceilings, with 4-inch wide Brazilian oak flooring and expansive windows. The artful kitchens have Sapelli wood cabinets, Nero Impala black granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances.

Achieving the best of all worlds, Roebling Square sits on a quiet residential street near the green expanse of McCarren Park, and nearer still to Williamsburg’s vibrant art and restaurant scene and the Bedford “L” train (one stop to Manhattan). From $575,000.

VICTORIA’S SECRET?

The lavish nine-story Kent, a new 103-unit condo in historic Clinton Hill, used to be the seven-story Kaiser Underwear Factory (built in 1915)—how times change. The Developers Group, exclusive sales and marketing agent, has just released nine sun-drenched duplex penthouses with incredible Manhattan views, spacious terraces and exquisite interior finishes. Designed by developer/architect Elissa Winzelberg, these deluxe 2BR homes feature maple floors, 15ft ceilings, huge windows and loads of space—1,212 to 1,379 sf. Knockout kitchens have cherry cabinets and Absolute Black granite counters; bathrooms have limestone floors and wall-mounted sinks.

More that’s good about the Kent: a 24-hour attended lobby, private storage spaces, a health and fitness club, and a landscaped courtyard with running track. Available summer 2006. Penthouse prices start at $760,000.

“Buyers in the middle market have leverage right now,” says Chris Thomas, executive vice-president of Brown Harris Stevens. “A year ago, there was no time for due diligence—you had to jump in and make an offer. Though the high end is still hot, prices in the middle have stabilized, so now you can be more deliberate, and look into four or five listings at a time.”
