A brighter look at the Washington Condos

Brownstoner has given much face time to the debacle that is Scarano and the Washington Condos, with good reason. Cementing itself as one of the more talked-about condominium projects in a while, the building received its' TCO on November 9. The DOB caught wind of the Scarantics and dealt a severe blow to everyone involved - Scarano, developer, sponsor, broker and buyers. As of today, the DOB has listed a plethora of objections that must be fixed before a new CO is issued.

In light of the plateau-ing market in Brooklyn and apparent glut of condominiums, it is quite clear that the Brooklyn of December 2006 is no longer the say-hey days of as recently as 2004 and 2005 where every developer and his mother was hiring Scarano Architects to pump and dump designs which according to some, have ruined the Brooklyn skyline legacy for years to come. While this is debatable, one thing is for sure - the Scarano aura has certainly taken a few body shots, but can the irascible 'Brooklyn baron' rise above his doubters and continue his erections?

N.B. The mystery continues - where did that picture above come from? It definitely is not a rendering, as has been suggested on brownstoner.com. But the people in it do suspiciously look like they've been photoshopped in. Can anyone shed light?

The Washington is a beautiful building that is the beachhead for resurrecting the entire neighborhood in Prospect Heights.

i agree with the first comment. once , all is squared away, it will be a great building and visually a plus for the neighborhood.

I think it looks like a good building as well. I honestly don't care how the mezzanine thing plays out, unless you are the developer or own one of those units, the building is the same, the interior details matter little to others.

I don't think the picture was photoshoped, esp. because if it was why would they leave the white stuff coming out of the front wall? This is an accurate depiction of the property.

On another note, I noticed that the St. Mark's condos around the corner that were posted recently have a couple of units in contract. One in the $530 psf range the other in the $560 range. So while the market may have cooled a bit, it's certainly not dead.

no i agree completely. the condo market in prospect heights, clinton hill and fort greene is in general very solid right now. see 320 washington avenue, 500 grand ave, 735 dean st, etc.

the objections listed all seem pretty basic. Many of them simply state that the plans need to be amended to reflect what was built. The others are simply finishing work that was not complete at the time of the inspection such as the bathroom in the gym or the underside of the terraces.

This work will all be done pretty quickly which will lead to a final CofO.

since the last post seems to written by the developer, well , when is the work going to be finished and the c of o obtained?

I posted the comment about the objections, I have no interest in the building but am happy to see it going up and look forward to people moving in. I do own other property in the area.

New TCO was issued yesterday, it looks like all of the objections have been satisfied.

Hey! Don't you think that guy wears jordan shoes walking with the girl which dresses in Silver Jewelry (Tiffany brand) and take a pair of ugg boots looks like couple? Well, I understand that watching people and talking them on street wasn't so policy genty. But I cant stop doing such thing, I’m searching a pair of jordan shoes and a pair of tiffany. And I don't know which kind of jordan shoes I should take. Too many kinds of air jordans to make the decision. Also, I’m the fan of Air Jordan interest in many ed hardy. Unfortunetly, I don't have enough money to take every air jordans. That’s why u see me here today. I just wanna get a pair of nike shoes, can you help me?
