This recently renovated late-1800s Williamsburg rowhouse’s future is so bright, you have to wear shades. Asking $2,899,000, natural light floods every room of this house and, best of all, it has an actual swimming pool in the backyard. And, if an owner needs more space, the house comes with unused air rights that could almost double it in size.

Two Trees Management announced today that Domino Park, the long-awaited new waterfront recreational public space at the 11-acre Domino Sugar Factory site, will celebrate its grand opening this Sunday, June 10. In April, 6sqft revealed renderings of the new park and esplanade that will anchor the three-million-square-foot Williamsburg mega-development at the Domino Sugar Factory site, designed by James Corner Field Operations (of the High Line fame). The quarter-mile long public park, located just north of the Williamsburg Bridge, celebrates the history of one of the city’s most iconic industrial waterfront sites with adaptively reused syrup tanks, warehouse columns, and original cranes (now painted the park’s signature turquoise color “untealed”). There will also be a taco kiosk from Danny Meyer, a water feature, bocce courts, and a children’s playground designed by Mark Reigelman as a reinterpretation of the original factory.

321 Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg, Watermark Capital Group

A newly constructed mixed-use building located near the Williamsburg Bridge has launched a lottery for 39 middle-income apartments. Built on the site of a former parking lot and single-story church, the 19-story tower at 321 Wythe Avenue includes 130 rental units, two floors of amenities, and an adjacent healthcare facility. Notably, because developer Watermark Capital Group is leasing the property from Saints Peter and Paul Church, certain activities “not in line with Catholicism” will be prohibited, DNAinfo reported in 2015. This includes a ban on things related to abortion, birth control, euthanasia, pornography, and stem-cell research.

Despite these strange stipulations, the ND Architecture-designed tower does sit in a prime location, just steps from a host of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and the Williamsburg waterfront. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the available 17, $1,999/month one-bedrooms and the 22 $2,399/month two-bedrooms.

Offered by the original owners, this truly one-of-a-kind penthouse atop Williamsburg’s Mill Building has been dubbed the “House on the Roof,” but it could easily be mistaken as a luxurious mountaintop chalet. The red-roofed two-bedroom penthouse is wrapped in glass that opens to a massive rooftop terrace complete with a full kitchen setup. And it’s now asking $2.85 million.
