April showers may bring May flowers. But when it comes to real-estate development, it’s actually years of planning and construction that have brought a bevy of new buildings to market this spring.
House hunters on the prowl for new digs now have dozens of condo and rental developments all over town — from Midtown to Sheepshead Bay, from Harlem to the sixth borough of Jersey City.
Whether you’re looking to live in a big tower or a smaller boutique property, gain access to over-the-top amenities or simply cozy up behind a facade designed by a starchitect, we’ve got you covered.
Here, a look at all your options for spring and — if you’re not quite ready to pull the trigger on a new home — a teaser for the properties due to hit the market this summer. Happy (house) hunting!
45 Park Place
This 43-story luxury condo in Tribeca is prepping for its launch. Listings are estimated to debut this month, with prices from $1.9 million. The tower, developed by Sharif El-Gamal’s Soho Properties, will house 50 flats spanning one to four bedrooms, with sizes from 880 square feet. They’ve got white oak flooring in the bedroom and living spaces, while kitchens have Gaggenau appliances. Residents will also have access to amenities including a lounge, an indoor spa pool, a children’s playroom and a gym. Other helping hands include SOMA’s Michael Abboud, who’s the design architect, and Ismael Leyva, who’s serving as the architect of record. Piero Lissoni was charged with the interiors. This development is right next door to formerly controversial address 51 Park Place. The site came under fire in 2010 when El-Gamal proposed building a 15-floor Islamic community center. El-Gamal later went back to the drawing board, acquired the neighboring 45 Park Place site and altered the plans to make this condominium the economic driver for the site’s development. The community center element morphed into a planned Islamic heritage museum, to be designed by starchitect Jean Nouvel.

As work clamors away on mega-developments across the city, these cities-within-cities come to life one building at a time. Such is the case at Brookfield’s 8-acre Manhattan West, whose 62-story Eugene is the mini-nabe’s first new structure to open. Leasing is already ongoing at this 844-apartment rental property, whose facade is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. (SLCE served as the building’s architect, while RW Studios handled interiors.) The Eugene has studios through two-bedrooms, with prices beginning at $3,250 per month. Located at 435 W. 31st St., the mighty building has a generous 50,000 square feet of amenity spaces. Those perks include a La Palestra-managed gym with a rock-climbing wall, a golf simulator, an indoor regulation-sized basketball court and the Hudson Club — a rooftop members-only club, which features a cocktail bar, a private dining room, a piano lounge with a fireplace and a roof terrace that’s 4,600 square feet in size. Manhattan West is a six-building mixed-use development in the Hudson Yards vicinity, and when complete it’ll include office space, retail shops, a public plaza and a hotel.

The nearly 5-acre Waterline Square site on the far West Side, where three condo towers designed by star architects will stand, launches sales this spring. The parcel, formerly known as Riverside Center, includes Richard Meier’s One Waterline Square, Kohn Pedersen Fox’s Two Waterline Square and Rafael Viñoly’s Three Waterline Square. Renderings show three glassy yet architecturally distinct buildings between West 59th and 61st streets along the Hudson River that will house a total of 263 luxury residences between them, with one- through five-bedrooms and prices from approximately $2 million. Here, showstopping features include not only a new park that will connect the three properties but also a whopping 100,000 square feet of amenities with an indoor tennis court, a soccer field, a lap pool, a kids’ pool and play areas for both kids and pets. GID Development Group is the developer.

Prolific architectural firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects lent its touch to the 261 Hudson rental, which launched leasing in April. This 160-unit Hudson Square address, developed by the heavy-hitting Related Companies, has studios to two-bedrooms, with prices from $3,795. The interiors feature open kitchens with gray-stained oak cabinets and integrated refrigerators and dishwashers, while certain homes have private terraces. Outside of the apartments, tenants also get an Equinox-curated gym, both a private interior courtyard and a garden designed by HMWhite, plus access to the developer’s RelatedStyle Services — which offers move-in coordination and in-home package delivery. Don’t have a unit with a terrace? No worries — there’s a shared roof terrace with views of the nabe and the Hudson River. You better act fast. We hear 261 Hudson is over half leased after less than a month on the market.

For those looking to move on up to the East Side, the 21-story, 48-unit Vitre condo at 302 E. 96th St. will bring listings to the market this spring. (And yes, it’s where house hunters can also get that deluxe apartment in the sky.) Fischer + Makooi Architects PLLC (yes, that includes Karl Fischer) designed this address, said to be the first to launch sales along the Second Avenue Subway since that new transit line debuted in January. It will have one- to three-bedrooms, including a penthouse collection of half- and full-floor dwellings. Interiors will come with floor-to-ceiling windows, kitchens with custom Italian cabinetry and spa-like bathrooms. Certain homes will also have libraries and private outdoor space. Pricing is expected to start around $915,000 and will run to $4.2 million.

While many tall towers dominate the season’s new offerings in Manhattan, certain house hunters value smaller buildings and fewer neighbors for greater privacy. In Greenwich Village, the Morris Adjmi-designed 116 University, on the corner of East 13th Street and University Place, has just five condos, starting at roughly $7 million. Six stories high, the building’s full-floor residences feature oversize windows, Miele appliance-clad kitchens by Smallbone of Devizes and lofty ceilings. Elsewhere inside the property, there’s a gym, an attended lobby, storage and — on the tippy top — a roof terrace. Ranger Properties and KD Sagamore Capital developed this building.

Manhattan’s white-hot far West Side continues to heat up with new buildings rising along the Hudson — a number of which are in this roundup. Another, Henry Hall at 515 W. 38th St., brings 225 rentals to the area. The handsome pads span studios to two-bedrooms. Think hardwood flooring throughout, oversize windows, and chef’s kitchens with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. Another huge perk is that each home has a Bosch washer/dryer. Some spreads even have terraces. Leasing began in April, with pricing from $3,200 monthly. The 33-story property also has a stocked amenity package: Musicians can gather in the jam room and health buffs can stay fit in the training center. There’s also a roof deck. BKSK handled architecture here, while Ken Fulk was charged with interior design. Imperial Companies is the developer.

There’s yet another two-tower development new to Midtown West: 525W52, a 392-unit rental aptly located at 525 W. 52nd St. in Hell’s Kitchen. (Seventy-nine apartments are reserved for affordable housing.) Handel Architects was charged with the building’s design, whose standout shape resembles an ascending staircase. Inside, condo-style finishes include spiffy kitchens with high-end appliances — as well as Caeserstone and wood decorative elements — and windows that look out to both the Hudson River and the city skyline. Prospective market-rate tenants can expect prices from $2,970 for a studio (the biggest homes have two bedrooms) — as well as a sweet amenity offering. There’s a library, a screening room, golf simulators, a gym, a pet spa, a roof terrace and an outdoor courtyard with grills and bocce courts. Listings kick off in May. Taconic Investment Partners and Mitsui Fudosan America are the developers.

225 W. 17th St.
In Chelsea, the boutique 14-unit 225 W. 17th St. will list its condominium pads on May 10 with a price range of $2.95 million to $8.5 million. Those prices buy homes with two to four bedrooms — four of them penthouses with outdoor spaces — and square-footage measurements from 1,500 to 3,000. The architecture of the building, by Rogers Partners Architects, is reminiscent of a Jenga tower, with the topmost stories resembling staggered blocks. Neal Beckstedt Studio’s light-filled interiors show chef’s kitchens with tons of storage, wide-plank oak floors and marbled full bathrooms with Porcelanosa fittings. Developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises, 225 W. 17th St. also offers residents storage and a part-time doorman.

272 W. 86th St.
C.P.H. Gilbert was an architect known for designing tony townhouses and mansions around town. Now three of his adjacent historic brick-and-limestone mansions, which date to 1895, are getting a new life as a seven-unit condo. In what’s now known as 272 W. 86th St., Gilbert’s original facades remain intact, while the oversize homes boast modern flair. They range from three to six bedrooms and layouts vary greatly. For instance, there’s a 4,300-square-foot duplex penthouse with an additional 2,500 square feet of terrace space. There are also two townhouse-style units that have gardens. Inside, open-plan kitchens have high-end appliances, and master bathrooms contain deep soaking tubs and polished chrome fixtures. For when the weather gets sticky, there’s central air. East River Partners, alongside architect Barry Rice, worked on this conversion. Want in? Units start at $4.49 million.

The Domino sugar factory has long been a fixture of the Brooklyn waterfront. And now, under redevelopment by Two Trees Management, the 11-acre site’s first building debuts its rental listings this spring. Dubbed 325 Kent, this 16-story pioneer on the site has 522 apartments — 105 of which are earmarked for affordable housing. Studios, alcove studios, one-bedrooms, one-bedrooms with home offices and two-bedrooms are all options inside this SHoP Architects-designed edifice. Given the property’s scale, it’s no surprise there are 11,300 square feet of amenities. There’s a 7,000-square-foot roof deck with views of Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Williamsburg Bridge. Both 325 Kent’s health club and residents’ lounge look out to panoramic views. There’s also a 2,000-square-foot fourth-floor courtyard and a chef’s kitchen for catered events. When complete, the entire Domino development will have about 2,300 apartments — more than 700 will be affordable — 500,000 square feet of office space and a 6-acre riverfront park.

Cities-within-cities, concentrated areas with multiple buildings à la Hudson Yards and Manhattan West, continue to crop up around town — and yes, that includes developments in Brooklyn. Fortis Property Group’s River Park — a nearly 1 million-square-foot, seven-building redevelopment of the former Long Island College Hospital site in Cobble Hill — just launched sales for its first phase, which includes the Polhemus Residences and the Polhemus Townhouses. The former, located inside the landmarked Polhemus Building, has 17 condo units. Designed by BKSK Architects, they have windows up to 16 feet high, ceilings reaching 21 feet in height and kitchens with Gaggenau appliances. Those two- to five-bedroom spreads range from 1,591 square feet to 3,693 square feet, with prices from about $2.55 million to more than $6 million. Meanwhile, the eight townhouses, designed by Douglas Romines, are located on Amity Street between Henry and Hicks streets. Two of them measure 20 feet in width, while the remainder stand at 16 feet wide. They’ll have private elevators, two-story great rooms, 20-foot glass walls that look out to gardens and Gaggenau-fitted kitchens. Their sizes run from 3,720 square feet to 5,300 square feet — and if you want in, you need to cough up at least $5.99 million. The Polhemus Residences have amenities like a duplex fitness center, a billiards library and a roof lounge with views of New York Harbor. Townhouse owners can access those perks as part of an annual membership plan. The entire site is expected to be completed in 2022.

1 Brooklyn Bay
Most New Yorkers don’t pay too much attention to new buildings in Sheepshead Bay. But this Brooklyn nabe is earning a place in the spotlight with its 30-story 1 Brooklyn Bay project, which the development team touts as South Brooklyn’s tallest residence. Sales launch this month at the development, at 1524 Sheepshead Bay Road, for those looking for one-bedrooms, four-bedrooms and everything in between. The building, designed by Perkins Eastman, will house 56 condos, as well as an outdoor pool, a bocce court, a dog run and a 2,500-square-foot fitness center — all over 2.5 acres.

Apartment interiors feature custom Italian millwork in the kitchens, ceiling heights over 11 feet and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city skyline, the Sheepshead Bay marina and the Atlantic Ocean — a rare sight within city limits.

2100 Bedford Ave.
Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood has been on house hunters’ radar over the last several years thanks to its lower housing costs. And those looking to buy — in a building designed by prominent architect Karl Fischer, no less — have a new option.

You know what’s good about living in Williamsburg in the years leading up to the 15-month L train shutdown in 2019? Living near the G train. That’s the case at Casetta — another cool building by ODA, located at 630-632 Lorimer St. — that begins listing its 12 condominium homes for sale this month. If you prefer traveling by car, it’s also near the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, but hey, when the L reopens, the Lorimer stop won’t be far either. Beyond nearby transportation options, the building has a rooftop lounge, a virtual concierge and — for an additional cost — private storage units. The dwellings themselves, whose entry-level cost is $695,000 and tops at $1.69 million, measure from 550 square feet.

Not all spring newcomers are new-construction developments. Some, like the Offerman House at 248 Duffield St. in Downtown Brooklyn, are conversions.

Its large roof terrace has a fire pit, two grill areas and a space for movie screenings. Inside, there’s more room for movies with a 10-seat theater, as well as a lounge, a laundry room on each floor and two separate areas for fitness. There are 121 apartments total, from studios to three-bedrooms, which come with white oak flooring, washer/dryers, intercom systems and kitchens with Fisher Paykel and Bosch stainless steel appliances.

The Brooklyn Zinc
No surprise in building materials here. The Brooklyn Zinc, where rental homes are expected to come online this weekend, has a facade lined with that very metal — a feature you don’t hear about that often. But beyond the fancy sheath, it’s what’s inside this S3 Architecture-designed structure that counts. The property, developed by Industrie Capital Partners and located at 313 St. Marks Ave. in Prospect Heights, has a landscaped roof terrace with chilling and dining space, a lounge with billiards and a kitchenette, a pet spa, a gym, a screening room and on-site parking.

Townhomes at Park Court
Park Slope is known for two things: the high concentration of parents pushing baby strollers down its streets and its high stock of tony townhouses. Now the area is getting three more of them. Later this spring, keep an eye out for the market debut of the Townhomes at Park Court — a three-townhouse development coming to 346 13th St. Kushner Studios, along with Penelope Kim Designs LLC, kitted out these four-bedroom, smart-wired pads with media rooms, backyards and roof terraces. (American Development Group, LLC is the developer.) They each measure 3,333 square feet and have an additional 1,000 square feet outside. This is just the first phase of a larger development; a second phase will bring condominium units later this year.

871 Park Place
We talk about boutique condos — that is, buildings with fewer for-sale apartments for a more quaint feel — but what about boutique rentals for tenants in need of some peace and quiet? Those looking in Crown Heights can count the eight-unit 871 Park Place rental on their side. This renovated brownstone, with two- and three-bedrooms, will ask between $3,500 to $4,500 per month when they come online in mid-May.

Apartments, for which rental prices aren’t yet available, have washer/dryers, stainless steel KitchenAid appliances and oak floors. The building’s double-height lobby, as well as its courtyard, will display works by local artists, but the roughly 26,000 square feet of amenity spaces is of particular note.

Crown Architecture and Consulting handled the redesign.

Jersey City Urby
The Garden State’s tallest residential building — 69-story, 713-foot-tall Jersey City Urby — has already started renting out units. The massive 762-apartment building is a little sister to the also-huge 900-unit Urby Staten Island, which opened in 2016. The Concrete-designed property — noticeable along the Jersey City waterfront for its height and block-like architecture — has a mix of studios, one- and two-bedrooms. Pricing begins at $2,500 monthly. The homes come with oversize windows, washer/dryers and stainless steel appliances. The common spaces, however, are especially cool. One of them, the Urby Creative Lab, is where residents can participate in interior design, floral arrangement and homemade apothecary workshops. The communal kitchen will host cooking classes led by local chefs, tastings and pop-up dinners. Hungry for dessert? Brooklyn’s popular Ample Hills Creamery will have space at the building’s base. Other perks include a gym with classes, a heated outdoor pool and a new outpost of fancy coffee shop and eatery 9 Bar Cafe in the lobby. The developers are Ironstate Development and Roseland Residential Trust.

Park and Shore
Jersey City’s forthcoming Park and Shore is a two-building condominium development that begins listing units this spring. But instead of two similarly sized properties — as is typically the case in these types of projects — one reaches 37 stories high, while the other stands at just eight floors. The larger structure, at 75 Park Lane, fits 358 homes; the other, located at 2 Shore Lane, has 71. At the former, layouts range from studios to three-bedrooms and at the latter, there will be one- and two-bedroom apartments. Interested? The barrier to entry for one-bedrooms is $640,000 (studio pricing, which will be lower, has not yet been released). A purchase here also lets you in on a wide selection of over-the-top amenities. There’s a dining room, an area for wine tasting, an entertainment room with surround sound and retractable screens, a spa with steam rooms and saunas, and a game room with billiards, ping-pong and foosball tables.

Until now, Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood has had a low-slung streetscape. But this Polish immigrant-meets-hipster enclave has a 40-story building on the way called the Greenpoint that will redefine the waterfront. This summer will see the sales launch of its 95-unit condominium portion, which will run from floors 28 to 40. (The Greenpoint will have rentals on the lower floors — 287 of them — while an adjacent five-story property will have 81 residences for lease. Those homes are not yet available.) The condos, located right on the East River, will be studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom dwellings. One-bedrooms will ask around $1.1 million, two-beds will be available from approximately $1.57 million and those three-bedrooms will ask roughly $2.2 million. There are also lots of amenities — chief among them a courtyard with outdoor grills and dining areas. Additional leisure spaces will include an indoor basketball court, a co-working space and lounges that look out to the Manhattan skyline. It’s developed by Mack Real Estate Group, Palin Enterprises and Urban Development Partners.
