PIER PRESSURE

Brooklyn buyers should head over to Northside Piers if they’re looking for a country–club lifestyle. Developed by Toll Brothers Inc., this waterfront community along the East River at North Fourth Street and Kent Avenue in Williamsburg is a five–acre beauty with a terrific selection of 1–, 2– and 3BR homes inside three glass wall towers (50 percent of the units have private balconies) plus a generous collection of townhomes. Expect the usual high–end fixtures and finishes in every residence along with a long list of community amenities such as a swimming pool, lush recreation lawns, landscaped courtyards, rooftop terraces, media lounges, fitness centers, saunas, yoga studios and kids’ playrooms. For these buyers, the piéce de resisténce will most likely be the complex’s gorgeous esplanade for biking, strolling and exceptional Manhattan skyline views. There’s also a 700–foot private dock, storage, bike rooms and enclosed parking. From about $350,000. LATE 2007

ON YOUR PARK

Luxury seekers are checking out 45 Park at 37th Street where scrumptious views can be had from both the 9–foot windows and Juliette balconies that embellish just about every room in the house. Inside this Costas Kondylis–designed tower are 1–, 2– and 3BR units (some have terraces in addition to the balconies) with exotic Iroko wood floors throughout. Very roomy kitchens have custom wood/etched glass cabinetry, full–height etched glass backsplashes and granite countertops. Appliances are from Viking and Sub–Zero, and there are full–sized washer/dryers. Cedar marble master baths come with glass–door shower stalls, Kohler soaking tubs, double–sink Anigre wood vanities and multimedia ports for high–speed communications and TVs. A sprawling resident’s lounge sports a big flat–screen plasma TV and catering kitchen—all this but steps from a lushly landscaped terrace. Other amenities: Health club, concierge, refrigerated storage and indoor parking for purchase. From $900,000. FALL 2007
