Real Estate Showcase - Brooklyn Properties



Already awakened from a long snooze, the humming Williamsburg waterfront—once dominated by the Domino Sugar plant—is sprouting its first luxury tower: the plush 29-story Northside Piers. Seen as an anchor to the revitalized neighborhood, the 180-unit building is the first phase of Northside Piers, a cutting-edge, mixed-use development with condos, retail, waterfront esplanade, and 400-foot pier. Northside Piers, developed by Toll Brothers City Living in partnership with RD Management LLC and L&M Equity Participants, Ltd., sits on five acres with rooftop terraces and a novel “backyard” with shoreline paths and gardens spreading across 60,000 square feet. The location is sugar-sweet, between North 4th and 5th Streets, near the L subway line, and close to the neighborhood buzz raised by musicians, artists, and young professionals. Prices range from the low $500,000s to more than $2 million. OCCUPANCY DECEMBER 2007.

Park Slope, for years a highly desirable address, has taken on new cachet with the coming of NOVO, a superb collection of 113 condos that will redefine Fourth Avenue as one of the city’s hottest residential corridors. The airy units (studios to three-bedroom residences, plus nine penthouses) in the 12-story development are designed by the estimable Andres Escobar, who’s noted for his use of natural materials and his exquisite finishes. NOVO stands beside a spectacular public park with children’s playground, handball, and basketball courts, and a dog run. And close by are Prospect Park’s multifarious charms, the world-class performances and exhibitions of the Brooklyn Academy of Music Cultural District, and a neighborhood chockablock with historic brownstones. The residences range from 416 to 1,595 square feet, with prices starting at $310,000. OCCUPANCY FALL 2007.

Ikon, the newest condo arrival on spruced-up McCarren Park, will boast all the extras and then some when it opens early next year.

Designer Andres Escobar’s one- and two-bedroom apartments, ranging from 650 to 2,500 square feet, will feature a blend of wood, tile, and glass; floor-to-ceiling windows looking past the park to the New York skyline; bathrooms with limestone floors and showers; and the option to upgrade to automated lighting, climate, and home media controls. Lucky residents can lounge and sun on the observation deck, and there are special in-house rates for FreshDirect and Zipcars. Pricing starts at $480,000. OCCUPANCY JANUARY 2008.
