101 BEDFORD keeps rocking out the amenities.
Co-developer Yoel Sabel just announced that a fully equipped recording studio and photography studio, complete with backdrops and lighting, have just opened in the Williamsburg building.
The 1,000 s/f state-of-the-art digital recording studio has a separate engineering space with recording programs and a contiguous soundproof room.
“The two studios are amenities that many people requested here and we hope become attractions for new residents, as well,” said Sabel. “Our building has become a hub of creativity in the same way certain residences in Soho and Greenwich Village were years ago.”
Since opening, the building’s business center has emerged as a destination for writers, entrepreneurs and freelancers.
Last winter, a comedian who lives in the building premiered new acts to a standing room-only audience in the club room, with plans for future shows.
And, as the weather warms, the 17,000 s/f roof deck should attract artistic residents eager to capture the building’s views of McCarren Park and the Manhattan skyline, while enjoying barbeques or relaxing on the “mini beach.”
Among its many other amenities, 101 Bedford has a PGA-certified golf simulator, wine room and canine cleaning station.

Byfleet Manor in Surrey, England, home to Maggie Smith’s character Lady Violet Crawley in Downton Abbey, has come to the market through Savills with a $6.2 million guide price.
The eight bedroom historic home, complete with four reception rooms and around 19 acres, has assumed the role of Lady Violet’s Dower House since 2010.
Byfleet Manor’s starring role followed on from initial appearances in period dramas, Poirot and Cranford and was Cinderella’s home in the Oscar nominated Into the Woods.
The brokers are expecting interest from around the world. The home is just over 20 miles from the centre of London and 15 miles from Heathrow Airport,
