The Crest, an inspired collection of 68 luxury residences, has added a touch of class and serenity to Park Slope’s throbbing 4th Avenue.

Each has bamboo flooring throughout, washer and dryer; the upper floor residences afford uncluttered views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Topping an impressive list of amenities are an indoor parking garage and spacious fitness center which opens on to a quiet outdoor recreation space. Residents are just steps from a world of art, culture and recreation—namely Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Museum and BAM, along with Park Slope’s chic shops and boutiques, restaurants and night spots. Pricing starts at $355,000. Occupancy Late 2007.

An oasis of calm and elegance has come to happening Greenpoint in the form of a new condo at 267-269 Kingsland Avenue. The upscale building—designed by New York architect Mark Gould and featuring eight one-bedroom homes and eight two-bedroom duplexes—is an ideal target for homebuyers priced out of traditional Manhattan residential markets, according to Adam Mermelstein, a partner with TreeTop Development.

Pricing begins at $425,000. Occupancy will be June 2008.

“Brooklyn can’t keep up with the demand for new living space here, but if it’s a problem, it’s a good problem,” says Bill Ross, Halstead’s executive director of sales for Brooklyn. “Savvy buyers are now familiar with eight, ten, even a dozen neighborhoods, and City Hall has helped greatly by rezoning several of the most vital areas.”
