● DOUGLASTON DEVELOPMENT
75 Greene makes its debut
Douglaston Development has launched sales at its landmarked condominium conversion project, 75 Greene Avenue, with over 20 percent of the units already in contract.
The project, which was financed with equity partner G4 Capital Partners, is a 22-unit building that will offer a mix of one, two and three-bedroom homes, with select units featuring private outdoor space.
Units range from $845,000 to $2.6 million and are anticipated to be move-in ready in Q2 2019. Sales are being handled by MNS.
“We saw a huge opportunity to preserve and convert a historic Fort Greene landmark and add to the neighborhood fabric – a storied, family-oriented area of Brooklyn that’s mainly a brownstone community,” said Benjamin Levine, Executive Vice President of Finance and Acquisitions, of Douglaston Development.
“Although we don’t typically take on projects of this scale, to be able to maintain that aesthetic and pay tribute to the history of 75 Greene Avenue while creating brand new homes is truly special and something we’re really proud of.”
Units have open layouts, contemporary finishes and chef quality kitchens.
Amenities and conveniences include a landscaped courtyard, fitness center, video doorman and valet, package room, private storage and bicycle room.
Additionally, the project will feature four, 20 ft. wide townhouses located at 71 Greene Ave and 370, 372 and 374 Clermont Avenue.
● IRONSTATE/ PANEPINTO PROPERTIES
Final piece in Columbus Collection
90 Columbus has entered the downtown Jersey City residential scene with 539 rental residences and a full suite of amenities.
Leasing is underway at the new 51-story tower, which was developed by Ironstate Development Company and Panepinto Properties at the entrance to the Grove Street PATH Station.
“90 Columbus reflects the evolution of Jersey City and our commitment to delivering a lifestyle experience that meaningfully connects with today’s urban renter,” said Michael Barry, President of Ironstate Development Company.
The tower is the fourth and final phase of The Columbus Collection, a mixed-use offering jointly developed by Ironstate and Panepinto Properties that comprises 1,484 rental residences, a 152-suite Residence Inn by Marriot® hotel, an approximate 1,000-space enclosed parking garage, and street-level retail space housing Base Gym and Grove Market Place.
For 90 Columbus, the partnership tapped Parisian interior architect Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance and landscape designer Bas Smets to create “an oasis of calm set apart from the bustle of the city.”
The lobby, attended by a 24-hour doorman and full-time porters, features a two-story communal lounge with a winter garden and communal workspaces.
There is a 60,000 s/f outdoor landscaped roof deck with a pool, BBQ grilling stations, sport court, dog run, and children’s play area.
Studios, one- and two-bedroom residences start at $2,695, with immediate occupancy available.

“While the building is quickly being nicknamed the new Flatiron, we are most proud of the connection and energy it will bring to the neighborhood. There is a sense of community there unlike any other place in New York,” said Jonathan Marvel, Founding Principal, Marvel Architects.
“Brooklyn Heights is perhaps the most extraordinary neighborhood to raise a family in, and it’s where I was lucky enough to raise mine.”
The residential interiors are designed by Studio DB.
Offerings at One Clinton will range from one- to five-bedroom units. Pricing starts at $1,088,000 for one bedroom residences, $1,985,000 for two bedrooms, $3,195,000 for three bedrooms and $5,258,000 for four bedrooms residences.
