Architect Morris Adjmi’s latest residential project officially topped out in Dumbo last month. A former parking lot, 85 Jay Street is now home to two sleek 21-story towers comprised of residential units and space for retail. Dubbed Front & York, the complex will bring a mix of 728 condo and rental units to a full block in the neighborhood when it opens next year, making it one of the largest developments in Dumbo. Current availability for the condos ranges from a one-bedroom for $965,000 to a four-bedroom penthouse for $7.85 million.

Most New Yorkers have had to get creative with their remote work situations, but if you’re on the #WFH train for the long haul, you may need to consider an upgrade. And if you’ve got $2,750,000 to shell out, consider this incredible Fort Greene carriage house. Built in 1925, the super unique residence was fully renovated in 2014 and now includes a conference room, three offices, and even a recording studio. It’s not technically set up as a private home, but with a full kitchen, rear terrace, and tons of space, it easily could be.

Not many people can say they live in a 19th-century carriage house, but here’s a rare opportunity to rent a large, one-bedroom apartment in one in Cobble Hill. Built in 1830, 173 Pacific Street is comprised of two units, and this one is on the second level. Highlights include beamed ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, and a rear balcony. The home is asking $4,100 a month.

Just north of Green-Wood Cemetery, on the border of Greenwood Heights and Park Slope, this two-bedroom condo is asking $899,000. The apartment is located at 259 21st Street, a 1905 schoolhouse converted into lofts. The transformation left this unit with original oversized arched windows and 12.5-foot-high beamed ceilings, and the owner’s creative touch added a cool wall of built-in bookshelves that frames both of the sleeping areas.

This Bed-Stuy townhouse 671 Hancock Street has a lot going for it. First, it’s got tons of character, including rustic brick walls and exposed ceiling beams. Second, it’s a two-family with an owner’s duplex and a garden rental. And third, the $1,650,000 price makes it a great investment for all that you’re getting.

While new Whole Foods stores in New York City typically open to fanfare from lovers of the grocery chain, a new location in Brooklyn won’t get the same in-person hoopla. The first-ever online-only Whole Foods “store” opened in Brooklyn on Tuesday, dedicated exclusively to fulfilling online grocery orders. The new store, which has been in the works for over a year, will not allow any customers inside.

Take one look at the old-world wine cellar at this Park Slope brownstone, and it’ll make perfect sense that the owners are selling because they’re winemakers relocating to California. And the absolutely gorgeous home, listed for $6 million, also has plenty of places to enjoy a nice glass of vino, including four outdoor spaces. The townhouse was completely renovated, retaining its impeccable historic details, while adding modern conveniences and a wonderful, income-producing apartment on the garden floor.

This townhouse at 179 Midwood Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens was built as a classic limestone residence in 1905, but in 2012, local firm von Dalwig transformed it into a modern, serene family home. By removing interior walls and opening up the rear facade to the garden, the architects were able to “accommodate the open living and views desired within a compact house and lot,” according to their project page. The three-bedroom house is now listed for $2,350,000.

When 6sqft took a tour of model Summer Rayne Oakes‘ apartment in 2016, her home was filled with more than 500 plants. Today, that collection has grown to 1,100 and Summer has written a book on how to “cultivate green space in your home and heart.” Most recently, she took this idea and applied her style to a studio apartment at the new Crown Heights condo 111 Montgomery Sreet (h/t NY Post). Listed for $499,000, the apartment is a cool mix of contemporary finishes, boho decor, and, of course, plants galore.

This townhouse clad in zinc and Brazilian Ipe definitely doesn’t look like the rest in Prospect Heights, and that may be its biggest selling point. The modernist single-family home is like a secret hideaway in the middle of Brooklyn–enter through the gate on Underhill Avenue and find yourself in a landscaped corridor/front yard complete with bamboo, native grasses, and hydrangeas. Pair it with the sleek contemporary interiors, and this home earns its $1,750,000 price tag.
