Condo Conversion:


The condo conversion of the cast iron building at Broadway and Franklin Street is exactly the type of project preservationists love. Developer Knightsbridge Properties painstakingly restored some 4,000 ornamental pieces on the facade, and they brought in architect Shigeru Ban to create a modern addition that pleased the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Inside, there are 11 now-duplex condos plus two penthouse units, ranging from a 2,850-square-foot 3BR to a 4,890-square-foot 5BR.

A former police station in Brooklyn Heights has been converted into 14 condos by the Daten Group and Freyer Architects. Three new stories were built atop the 100-year-old structure, and sales could start any day now.

There will be 10 half-floor units, one townhouse with a private backyard, and one duplex penthouse with a large terrace. The penthouse is expected to ask more than $25 million.

A 33-unit rental building designed by the Brooklyn-based firm MDIM is nearing completion in Williamsburg. The units will be one- and two-bedrooms, some of which will have private outdoor space. Rents will range from $2,400 to $4,800.

Reps from Sterling Equities tell us the four-story development planned for the Regency Carts site in Gowanus will become condos. And the new building will have 35 apartments, instead of the 32 we reported when the developers filed plans in October. Scaffolding was erected last week, as GYFO noted, and it looks like work could begin soon.


Made of 56 prefabricated containers shipped in from Pennsylvania, The Stack in Inwood is one of the pioneers in modular construction in the city. We've tracked the project from renderings to a time-lapse video of of the capsules getting, well, stacked. And now, after a few months of delay, its 28 units will hit the rental market this spring.


Nolita's 199 Mott is green developer Alfa’s fourth LEED Gold-striving project. Located between Spring and Delancey, the ground-up eight-story structure has a handsome red brick, steel and limestone facade designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects. It will house 11 two- and three-bedroom residences, ranging from 1,2225 to over 3,000 square feet.

A whole bunch of renders and details were recently unveiled as Xinyuan very publicly marketed the project to Chinese buyers. Here's what's included in the development: 216 condos, ranging from one to six bedrooms. Of those, 15 are private townhomes, each with its own garage. There are also four penthouses that also come with private garages, accessible via elevator. (The townhouses and penthouses all have jacuzzis, btw.) Residents have access to amenities including an indoor lap pool, gym, steam and sauna rooms, children's playroom, and a rooftop with a reflection pool. A 10,000-square-foot space intended for a nonprofit art gallery is on site. While WASA is the architect of record, the interiors should be special. The project's name—Oosten—is Dutch, and that's because the interior designer for the whole place is Piet Boon, who is making his NYC debut with luxe Park Avenue South project Huys. Construction is finally underway, sales are scheduled to launch in early May and occupancy is expected in the last quarter of 2015.

The long-stalled conversion of the Caledonian Hospital beside Prospect Park is finally becoming a reality. The Chetrit Group-developed, Karl Fischer-designed condo will come to market this spring with 120 rental apartments. It will have studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms, plus 128 attending parking spaces in the cellar level, and 67 bike parking spaces.


Once upon a time, notorious architect Karl Fischer had plans for 316 Bergen Street in Boerum Hill, but thankfully those plans died. The building is now designed by ODA Architecture, and developers the Naftali Group and AEW Capital Management are planning an 85-unit rental with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include an attended lobby, fitness center, two lounges, a landscaped roof deck, an interior courtyard, and "unlimited access to noted concierge, Abigail Michaels."

The 114 condos across sister buildings at 540 West 49th Street are rolling out in two waves. One batch launched sales in late October, and there are currently 35 condos in contract and 13 available listings. Meanwhile, the north tower (note the big red arrows indicating which one it is) will launch sales of its 60 apartments this month. Just to give a sense of the pricing, the apartments on the market right now for the south tower range from a studio for $705,000 to a 2BR/2BA penthouse for $2.7M.
