In the other corner, we have Downtown Brooklyn. After winning the cup in 2011 and making it to the finals in 2012, DoBro failed to make an appearance last year, but the completion of 388 Bridge Street—the tallest tower in Brooklyn—has put the neighborhood back in the running. Many other big residential projects are on the rise, including the next tallest tower, and the mixed-use City Point development hit a few milestones. The ever-popular SHoP Architects also nabbed a commission in the ‘hood, and the neighborhood also saw a push for more green space, though it’s still waiting on more restaurants.

The Oosten is one of the most diverse residential projects I have ever seen. The 7 different residence types are all spacious and light, even the smallest unit. And perhaps more important: I love the fact that it caters for every possible wish and budget. Some even have gardens. The amenities and the level of services offered, is simply mind blowing. The Oosten is one of the most enviable places to live. Williamsburg represents the somewhat romantic image I had in my mind of how America looked like in the past. It very much reminds me of the charm of the Meatpacking District. -Piet Boon

DUMBO is one of the hottest neighborhoods, and according to The New York Post, is expected to be even better in 2015. We’re especially excited for all of the upcoming developments in the area, specifically 51 Jay Street.
If, for instance, the neighborhood vibe surrounding the planned building will be part of its appeal, marketers are best advised to leverage that allure. Take The Adeline, for instance. A new condominium development located at 23 West 116th Street in central Harlem, The Adeline surpassed 50 percent sold within a month of launching sales, says Peter Denby of Halstead Property Development Marketing, who is leading sales at the property.

Two unreleased penthouses in Brooklyn’s tallest tower, 388 Bridge Street, will soon come to market as an optional two-condo combo apartment. If someone choses to purchase the $4.538 million duplex 52F and $5.124 million 53B to make a combination penthouse, it will be the highest triplex apartment in the borough as well as the priciest apartment in the building. That being said, all legwork to combine the apartments will be on the buyer the combination of the two apartments can be handled by the buyer, or may be aided by the sponsor, determined on a case-by-case basis. The most expensive single listing in the building will be the $6 million 53A (PDF!).

Harbor’s Edge, 15 brand-new flats, lofts, and bungalows, each facing the water. Keith Green of Halstead Property (2 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, 771-5317) is charged with selling these units, and he keeps hearing a familiar refrain. “‘We’re downsizing and it’s just too much for us to keep a big house in the Hamptons,’” Green laughs. “So this is a lifestyle decision. Condominium living means that when you arrive for your long-deserved weekend, you have a single responsibility and that is to turn the key.”
