    Bridgefront, a luxury loft condominium, is located in the heart of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). This historic waterfront community has spectacular views of lower Manhattan, the East River and both the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. It is a rapidly changing and vibrant neighborhood and boasts new and hip restaurants, shopping and living conveniences. Bridgefront is accessible by subway on the A and C train stopping at High Street, the F train to York Street or the 2 and 3 trains at Clark Street. There is also the New York Water Taxi that stops at Fulton Landing and travels across the East River into Manhattan. DUMBO is within walking distance to Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn.

    This new state of the art construction luxury condominium building boasts 24-hour full service concierge, a fully equipped health club with a sauna and party room, private terraces and balconies, common roof terrace and an art gallery lobby showcasing DUMBO artists. All the units have 11’ ceiling heights, solid mahogany window sills, double glazed oversized out swinging windows, generous closets and high speed internet. The bathrooms are equipped with deep multi-jet Jacuzzi tub, custom sink and vanity and marble flooring. Kitchens include Sub Zero refrigerators, Wolf Range stainless steel ovens, Asko dishwashers, custom cherry wood cabinets and Pietra Serna countertops.

    POSTINGS: Bridgefront in Brooklyn; Condos Selling In Dumbo

    Published: September 21, 2003, Sunday

    Construction is still under way on Bridgefront, a 10-story condominium at 42 Main Street in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn, but 18 of its 21 loft-style apartments have been sold in the two months since sales began.

    The residences, including three penthouses, are offered with six different interior layouts and have 1,010 to 1,700 square feet of space, as well as private terraces. Sales prices range from $600,000 to $1.15 million, according to Boymelgreen Developers of Brooklyn, the developer of the $10.5 million project.

    Haysha Deitsch, the project manager, said he attributed the rapid pace of sales to the building's design and the neighborhood, whose name is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. ''Dumbo,'' he said, ''is Dumbo.''

    Bridgefront is clad in glass and a stuccolike material and has a facade with a rounded corner at Main and Front Streets. The architect is Elena Kalman of Stamford, Conn.

    In two weeks residents will begin moving into the building, which will have such amenities as a health club, meditation garden and roof deck. Completion is expected next month.

    Bridgefront marks Boymelgreen's entry into Dumbo, but the company already has started a second residential project in the neighborhood and has plans for two more, as well as a commerical development. ''This is the first and a taste of what is to come,'' Mr. Deitsch said.

    Although generally not a fan of post-modernism I do lavish in some of its details and classical throw-backs, this is a good building that fits right into its context.

    The Bridges

    79 Bridge St Brooklyn, NY 11201
    The Bridges Condominiums are the first luxury loft condo project to come to Vinegar Hill Brooklyn, a neighboring community to stylish Dumbo. This charming neighborhood features delightful restaurants, cobblestone streets and quaint brownstones. The Bridges has some of the most original architecture in all of Brooklyn, with its majestic open-air courtyards and breathtaking views of lower to mid-town Manhattan from its large roof-deck. Come see this beautiful loft condo building today.

    Open-air interior courtyard
    Individual balconies
    Wrought-iron railings
    Hardwood floors
    Stainless steel appliances
    Marble counter tops
    Marble baths
    Maple kitchen cabinets
    Exposed brick
    Insulated windows
    Roof Deck

    This converted factory building houses 37 loft-style-apartments, commercial gallery spaces, and enclosed parking on six floors. These features are contained within 40.000 square feet, making this a diverse and truly mixed-use development.

    By stretching the conceptual boundaries of the up and coming DUMBO Community three blocks east, this two story addition of a creation of this vacant factory building provided a platform for buyers to obtain loft-style living at a modest prices. Dubbed the “poor man’s lofts”, this building sold out all units in four weeks.

    The juxtaposition of new and old marks a crossroads in development in the area. The addition to the building marries old and new; new interior and exterior bearing walls, supported by the existing brick walls made the project economically feasible.

    This alteration constructed in strict conformance with the New York City Quality Housing Program. Afforded the residents many amenities not found in other buildings.

    A distinctive development, which provides both environmental sensitivity through adaptive reuse and energy conservation through creative insulation and ventilation systems, makes this project a success to everyone associated with it.

    I don't see how anyone can view #7 as anything but a wall. I'm guessing we all enjoy the height, as it will add to the skyline. However, it is just too much mass. I'd prefer two taller, slender towers rising from that base. I think this is just incredibly bad planning and a form of structure that imposes itself on a neighborhood, rather than integrating itself. Horrible.

    The Gair family developed many of the adjacent properties and these buildings lend their aesthetic qualities to the new structure. And while some of the new developments ignore this richly diverse community by placing Manhattan-style buildings next to these neighboring icons, this new building blends old with new, allowing both to be recognized and appreciated for what they are.

    Exterior surfaces reveal the varied nature of the interior layouts by using glass window wall systems on the upper level units, most of which have double height ceilings. Turning the mass on a 45 degree angle to the street grid allowed for unique and varied vistas for many units. Triple glazing and acoustically super-insulated exterior walls mask the din of noise emanating from the adjacent Manhattan bridge roadway and transit lines.

    With commercial spaces at the 1st floor and parking in the cellar, the residential portion on the floors above responds to the New York City Quality Housing Program, mandated by the local residential district.

    Large units of 1000 square feet for a two bedroom apartment represent a trend that the buyers now demand. Modern amenities include deluxe five piece fixtures in the master bathroom, his and her walk in closets and state of the art kitchen appliances with European cabinetry.

    Residential Tower To Rise in Dumbo
    By Barbara Jarvie
    Last updated: Tuesday, September 21, 2004 04:07pm

    BROOKLYN, NY-To add more residences to the “hot” Dumbo section of this borough, Scarano & Associates Architects completed the design of 133 Water St., a 12-story mixed-use condominium tower. It will be the first new building to be constructed in 100 years at the base of the Manhattan Bridge.

    Over the past few years, Dumbo has become one of New York City's most sought after residential neighborhoods. This initiative started when the Clock Tower Building was converted into luxury apartments in 1998.
    Plans for 133 Water St. include underground parking, first-floor commercial spaces and 52 residential units consisting primarily of one- and two-bedroom apartments, with some studios and three-bedroom units. Developed as a full-service luxury building, the condominium will feature such amenities as a fitness room, roof deck with recreational space and washer-dryer hook-ups. Units above the second floor will have balconies or terraces. The project also calls for triple-glazed glass curtain walls, as well as high-grade acoustically insulated exterior walls to mask street noises. Development costs were not available.
    Designed by Scarano’s Charles Diehl, the street frontage of the building will be composed of concrete. The glass portion of the site, primarily comprising the top eight floors, turns the mass of the structure at an angle to match the bridge.
    “We paid close attention to the architectural styles of the area,” points out Robert Scarano, the firm’s founder and principal. “We didn’t believe Manhattan-style modernism would be appropriate here, but rather a design that could celebrate the historic qualities of the neighborhood, while taking advantage of potentially remarkable vistas.”
    Construction developed by the Guttman family is just under way with completion scheduled for early 2006. The interiors are being designed by Andres Escobar and the marketing will be through the Developers Group.
    Two blocks away from the Water Street project in Vinegar Hill, Scarano & Associates recently completed the design of a second residential project. The architects proposed a four-story glass and steel addition, two separate entry lobbies, center courtyard and 83-space below ground parking lot. The Scarano architects responsible for the design are Richard T. Honovic and Robyn Squires.
    Founded in 1985 by Robert Scarano Jr., the firm is responsible for an average of 200 projects annually. Although the firm focuses much of its work in Brooklyn and Manhattan, the firm designed a convention center in Medellin, Columbia.
    The company is also converting two interconnecting, 1920's commercial buildings at 57 Front Street to 33 one- and two-bedroom rental apartments.

    10 Jay Street

    16 stories (7 story addition)

    10 Jay Street
    Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects

    Location: Brooklyn, New York
    This building's new design is proposed to become an integral part of redeveloping a waterfront loft district as well as Brooklyn’s new waterfront park. At the moment, the building detracts from its current urban setting and will, if it remains, be an obstacle (visual and functional) to the wonderful plans underway for the Brooklyn waterfront park. Here is one of those rare opportunities where private redevelopment can be directed to enhance ongoing public policy and current public construction projects, and to do so within a very short timetable.

    A thread on the building is here:
