Bridge View Tower Condos in DUMBO
The Bridgeview Tower Condominiums are now officially selling. Halstead is manning the onsite sales office along with the Chinese daughter of the developer. As you walk through the building, which is still very much under construction, you wind through the courtyard to the sales trailer, which they have designed to look like a sales model.
The kitchens have black granite countertops and feature a Subzero fridge, Viking range, wine cooler, microwave and dishwasher. Each unit has one of those built-in type air conditioners.
Halstead has only released a few units, including a $505K 696 square foot studio, $581K 732 sq ft 1 bed, 1 bath and $822K 1144 square foot 2 bed, 2 bath. All common charges include 24 hour concierge, indoor parking, use of a common garden, fitness center, and a free shuttle bus to public transportation.
The prices are averaging about $700-800psf. It's tough to say how these are going to sell. The neighborhood is not exactly filled with amenities nor nice tree-lined streets, although around the corner, there are some cute houses.
For those who have seen the building either coming off or going on the Manhattan Bridge, the block on which the condos are on does contain some quaint features, like the red (clapboard?) house pictured here. Also check out the view of downtown Brooklyn from the 11th floor.
The building has a very Asian feel to it, especially with the pink-colored exterior. The financing is also arranged by Cathay Bank. On the makeshift elevator up to the floors, there were signs in English and Chinese imploring workers to : "Please do not urinate here."
