On the Market

Sackett Union, 291 Union Street, Cobble Hill
Price: $1.85 Million
This long-gestating project has finally made it to market: a 32-unit condo with a mix of two- to four-bedrooms, plus attached townhouses with dedicated parking spots. Sales began in late August, and 22 deals are already signed.
Sample unit: 5A
Details: A 1,823-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath duplex with a washer and dryer, parking space, and terrace.
Brokers: Wendy Triffon and Jill Preschel, Alchemy Properties

5 West, 5 West 127th Street
Price: $525,000
This building’s thirteen units went on the market in July, and twelve have sold, perhaps reflecting condo buyers’ push northward to less expensive territory. The amenity list helps: gym and bike storage, and outdoor space for a lot of apartments.
Sample unit: 1B
Details: An 840-square-foot one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath duplex with a private, 725-square-foot planted garden.
Brokers: Jeff Krantz and Kristin Krantz, Halstead Property

Chelsea Green, 151 West 21st Street
Price: $2.7 Million
The glassy façade tops an unusual lobby with neo-Baroque window screens, and the kitchens were co-designed by Le Bernardin chef Eric Ripert. Developers of this ecofriendly project—it’s certified LEED gold—have sold most of the 51 units from floor plans, but three remain available.
Sample unit: 11B
Details: A 1,534-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath with a flexible layout and three exposures.

268–270 St. Marks Avenue, Prospect Heights
Price: $1.1 Million
Actually a pair of separate, side-by-side buildings, altogether containing just six units. Layouts are generous, in excess of 1,400 square feet with eleven-foot ceilings. Appliances are Bosch, floors are white oak, and—this being Brooklyn—every apartment gets its own bike-storage space. Sales officially begin next year.
Sample unit: Apt. 2
Details: A 1,400-square-foot three-bedroom plus a home office with two baths and a garden.
Broker: Aguayo Realty Group

345 Meatpacking, 345 West 14th StreetPrice: $1.725 Million
Smack in the middle of its namesake district’s central intersection, 345 distinguished itself this summer with a clever eye-catcher: construction netting designed by the artist Yayoi Kusama. The glassed-in section atop the brick façade is framed in bronze.
Sample unit: 2D
A one-bedroom plus den (or office) with two full baths and a private, 311-square-foot terrace.
Broker: Corcoran Sunshine Marketing

122 Adelphi Street, Fort Greene
Price: $295,000
The developer spent extra time and money on details like snazzy floors, extra-high ceilings, superior kitchen finishes, and special wood-framed soundproof windows. A fifteen-year tax abatement will keep common charges down.
Sample unit: 1A
Details: A 440-square-foot studio with oak floors and Bosch appliances.
Brokers: Ellen Whipple and Patricia Benna, Dwelling Group

200 East 79th Street
Price: $7.35 Million
When it’s finished, this condo will reach nineteen stories and contain 39 large apartments. Details are fairly conservative (cast-stone façade, “contemporary classic” detailing). Prices range from $3.155 million for a three-bedroom to the blockbuster listed below.
Sample unit: 11A
Details: A 4,187-square-foot five-bedroom with five and a half baths.

One Murray Park, 11-25 45th Avenue, Long Island City
Price: $445,000
This building meets the slick new Long Island City standard, with its own gym, underground parking, pet-washing area, and residents library. It was priced conservatively at first—but (after multiple increases) the developer recently rejected an offer of $815 per square foot.
Sample unit: Apt. 2I
Details: A 529-square-foot studio with a 450-square-foot terrace.

Coming in 2013–14

56 Leonard
Price: Not yet determined
Sixty stories in Tribeca, with first-tier architects (Herzog & de Meuron) and a big sculpture by Anish Kapoor out front. It will have 145 units, far more than most new buildings. Spaces from studios to five-bedrooms, plus ten glass penthouses on top, go on sale late this year.

The Charles, 1355 First Avenue
Price: Not yet determined
Construction began for this project at First and 72nd in 2008, then froze. Now the two apartments on each floor have become giant single units (starting at 3,300 square feet), most with three exposures. Prices will range between $5 million and around $15 million.

Baccarat Hotel and Residences, 20 West 53rd Street
Price: Not yet determined
A condo-hotel hybrid in the Time Warner Center mold, right across from MoMA. No word on prices—they’re still pending attorney-general approval—but expect 61 apartments with access to the upscale hotel services.

31 West 15th Street
Price: Not yet determined
Still another slow-to-arrive project, this 355-foot tower on top of Xavier High will house a new-and-improved version of the school; 56 apartments (one- to four-bedrooms) will fill the rest.

… And For Rent

4545 Center Boulevard, Long Island City
Situated on “site number 2” of a big development zone, this building will have 820 units for rent, as well as an extensive suite of amenities. Rents aren’t finalized yet, though the area is drawing about $50 per square foot for this class of building.

816–818 Dean Street, Prospect Heights
Sixteen loftlike apartments, from studios to “two-plus-bedrooms,” with double-height ceilings, will be hitting the market with bike storage and priced from $1,800 to $4,000.

Gotham West, 510–550 West 45th Street
This massive project—it takes up almost an entire city block—will release 1,238 rental units on the market in 2013. About half will be affordable housing; 554 will be market-rate (studios around $3,000, two-bedrooms at $6,200), and there’ll also be condos.

11 Broadway, Williamsburg
Designed by the architecture firm GreenbergFarrow, this 160-unit building was another previously stalled project. Lease signings have just begun; studios are priced at $1,850 a month, one-bedrooms at $2,650, and two-bedrooms at $3,750.
