Real Estate Showcase - Brooklyn



The architectural master Richard Meier is bringing his genius to On Prospect Park, a powerful, glass–walled luxury condo tower on the historic Grand Army Plaza. Meier’s first Brooklyn design project overlooks the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Arch, bringing even more vitality to the Park Slope and Prospect Heights neighborhoods. The 114 residences feature floor–to–ceiling glass and most have sweeping views across Prospect Park or all the way to the Chrysler and Empire State buildings. Meier’s fingerprints are on all design features—the flexibly planned Lobby Lounge, open kitchens with white minimalist counters and his picks of topnotch appliances (Gaggenau, Miele), bathrooms with Jet Mist stone floors and master baths with white Thassos heated marble floors. Seven super–glam penthouses crown this 15–story glory. Prices range from $790,000 to $6 million.

There is nothing cookie–cutter conventional about Aria, a 4–story development in East Williamsburg with old–world aesthetics and super–modern conveniences. The 20 condos come in 15 different layouts, with 17–foot ceilings and terraces in select units, and the building is the first in Brooklyn to have fingerprint access at the front entrance. All is light and bright, what with white–lacquer kitchens and curtain glass–wall windows. Aria is the work of a sterling triumvirate: development by The Tamir Group, interiors by Andres Escobar & Associates, the lobby project by Novo Arts. The penthouse sports a rare glass atrium in the living room, and a ground–floor garden condo has three distinct walk–down levels. The units, starting at $389,000, range in size from 601 to 1,430SF, and are 1 and 2BRs, garden duplexes and European style flats.

Bridgeview, a 31–condo building just off the East River, looks like a million bucks with its glass and aluminum–paneled façade, but it’s the amenities that place it above the competition. Feature this: a south–facing second–floor gym with towering views onto the river; indoor and outdoor parking garages, landscaped, communal roof garden and terrace; and a community wine cellar and tasting room. The location at 26 Broadway is ideal: a wide, peaceful street with an open sky, but very close to some of NYC’s best eateries. The nuts and bolts: Condo sizes include 1 and 2BRs, penthouses and duplexes, stylish interiors come with high–end finishes such as stone bathrooms and sycamore kitchen cabinets. Prices go from the mid–$400s to $1.35 million for the penthouses.

H. Luchnick, executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman, sees vindication for her native Brooklyn, no longer “a step down” for New Yorkers. “Just look at DUMBO and the Williamsburg waterfront where development has spread up the coastline through Greenpoint to Long Island City, also Park Slope and downtown Brooklyn. And the growth potential is not yet fully realized.”
