Groundbreaking for Brooklyn's tallest

Today marked the official groundbreaking of two new condominium towers at 167 Johnson Street and 306 Gold Street in the Downtown Brooklyn/Metrotech area. The two building are setting lofty goals, with 303 condos and 214 condos, respectively.

How does that measure up to some other projects? Here's an unofficial comparison:

85 Adams aka Beacon Tower - 81 units
The Kent Condos - 104 units
Boerum Heights - 120 units
Gretsch Building - 134 units
Schaefer Landing North - 135 units
70 Washington - 260 units
J Condo - 267 units
One Brooklyn Bridge Park - 605 units

where are all the buyers going to come from? J condo is advertising heavily. doesn't seem an easy sell to live in congested area.

Downtown BK is getting more and more attractive, but I think comparing dumbo to the downtown "business" district are apples and oranges. J condo is close to 80% sold a year before expected completion... the major draw is certainly the neighborhood. These new condo's may have a harder time selling out, but they will probably do well nonetheless.
