BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK'S NEW LOOK
Want to get a jump start on upcoming deals? Meet the major New York City players at one of our upcoming events!
|Toll Brothers City Living president David Von Spreckelsen (left, with his colleague Fred Cooper) tells us his firm is still playing around with exact unit sizes for condos it's developing along with a hotel in a JV with Starwood Capital at Brooklyn Bridge Park. It will break ground this spring. All units (one- to four-bedrooms, plus some penthouse in a 10-story and a five-story building) will face the waterfront. He tells us it's a brand-new concept of duplex townhouses like those in Brooklyn Heights but in a multifamily (meaning vertical) format. Units will probably come out around 2,000 SF, and while residents will be able to access hotel amenities like the spa and perhaps food delivery for a fee, each building will have its own gym, outdoor space, and children's playrooms. That last one is something Toll Brothers City Living includes in most of its properties.|
|The developer's 81 condo units at 160 E 22nd St at Third Ave in Manhattan (we snapped the site yesterday) will deliver within two years and 99 condos at 400 Park Ave South at 28th St within two and a half. Further uptown, demolition on a condo project on Park between 89th and 90th will begin in the next few weeks. It's a busy time for David, though he's making time to speak at Bisnow's Future of Brooklyn event, Nov. 2 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. Sign up here to hear from him and 14 other speakers, including City Council speaker Christine Quinn. Bonus: the chance to schmooze with Brooklyn movers and shakers.|
