Luxury Property Jardin to be Reintroduced in a Condo-Hungry Brooklyn Neighborhood
- Sep 13, 2011
Brooklyn, N.Y.—Jardin, an upscale 44-unit condominium property that reached completion in 2007 just as the housing industry collapsed, will return to the market in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn with a coming out party of sorts staged by private real estate brokerage firm aptsandlofts.com.
Sited within a block of a train station providing a short one-stop ride to Manhattan, Jardin originally hit the market as Urban Green over four years ago. The name has changed with its renaissance, but the property’s most distinctive feature has not. As its previous name, as well as its new French name, would indicate, Jardin’s most distinctive feature is its highly coveted green space, which comes in the form of a private landscaped garden sandwiched between the condominium community’s two buildings. It’s an amenity rarely available at multifamily properties in metropolitan New York City. “With this re-launch, the team really focused on upgrading the interior garden, which is a unique offering in this neighborhood, to create a private, green escape for residents,” David Maundrell, founder and president of aptsandlofts.com, tells MHN.
The team at aptsandlofts.com believes that, in addition to the lush green space, Jardin will attract homebuyers with its emphasis on spacious residences, as well as such amenities as a common rooftop gathering area and pervasive high-end finishes. Its location, just a stone’s throw from Williamsburg’s desirable shopping, dining and entertainment destinations is also expected to be a magnet for buyers seeking premier accommodations.
“Buyers are attracted to the amazingly vibrant atmosphere Williamsburg has to offer, and are eager to become a part of this community for the long term,” Maundrell notes. “I remember one recent Sunday this past summer where there was an Italian festival on Havemeyer Street, Bedford was closed to vehicles for a music festival and McCarren Park had an additional crafts fair; the neighborhood was alive with so many different types of people. It felt amazing.”
Particularly given that the nation’s condo market has yet to recover, location is a key element of success. In Brooklyn, the general stability of housing prices and sales activity have resulted in its status as one of the better performing boroughs of New York City for the last two years, according to a second quarter report by real estate services company Prudential Douglas Elliman. In North Brooklyn, home to Williamsburg, year-over-year condo sales skyrocketed 75.7 percent.
“Brooklyn is truly a city within the city, offering some of the best nightlife and restaurants in New York City today,” says Maundrell. “Williamsburg, in particular, is a very special place with some of the most creative young minds living and working in the neighborhood.”
Jardin will make its debut with a preview event on September 15.
