Earlier this year, the data website PropertyShark.com compiled a list of the 10 top-selling developments of 2011. The outer boroughs dominated, with condo buildings in Brooklyn and Queens taking the first four spots.
In Manhattan, properties in two booming neighborhoods – the Financial District and Midtown West – made the list. ”Two years ago Manhattan was dominating this list, in 2011, six out of the Top 10 Buildings with Most Units Sold were located in Brooklyn,” according to Property Shark’s blog.
Here, Brokers Weekly provides an overview of each development, along with Property Shark’s sales data.
99 John Art Deco Lofts
95 units sold at this 442-unit condo building in the Financial District last year, for a median price of $672,500.
The 27-story condo conversion, which is being marketed by Nest Seekers, was designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, the architects responsible for the Empire State Building, and offers studio-to-two bedroom lofts and three-to-four bedroom duplexes.
In 2010, Nest Seekers helped generate buzz for the building with a model unit design contest. After visitors voted for their favorite unit on Facebook, an artist with a studio in the Financial district was announced the winner.
