    Talk about gentrification. Home prices in some of the city’s neighborhoods have not just climbed over the last decade, they’ve blasted off, landed on Mars and found water. [more]

    Construction workers at the Hecla Iron Works site will have to fight the temptation to grab a beer at the Brooklyn Brewery.

    Sam Lefkowitz’s North 11 Associates filed plans to combine and convert two of the five warehouses at the landmarked Williamsburg complex across the street from the brewery. It is unclear which of the five industrial properties at 100-118 North 11th Street would be combined, and then converted.

    185 South 4th Street

    When was the last time you saw a doorman in a rental building in Williamsburg? Probably never. But that is changing. What is likely to be the first rental in Williamsburg to have a doorman is scheduled to open in September. In addition to being attended, the new development at 185 South 4th Street is a 49-unit building replete with a gym, storage, laundry room, roof terrace and lounge. Read the full story from the August 2008 issue here.

    From the September issue: At a time when residential development in Williamsburg is surging, some developers are working to usher in a new wave of commercial growth. Toby Moskovits is one of them.

    But as the 38-year-old founder of the development firm Heritage Equity Partners takes on an ambitious slate of office buildings and hotels in a neighborhood not known for them, she is also leaving a growing list of former business partners in her wake. 

    Moskovits is currently embroiled in five lawsuits — four of which she filed in the first three months of this year. [more]

    From the August issue: Three hulking, deconstructed and robotic monsters — I mean that in a good way — will soon rise over the Williamsburg waterfront. And if the renderings are to be believed, they look as though they might be able to lay waste to Lower Manhattan.

    The renderings are of developments, each of them 24 stories tall, at 416-420 Kent Avenue that will represent former Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s maiden journey on the road to New York City real estate developer. The architect of the project, Eran Chen, of ODA Architects, describes the design (more gently than I have) as a “molded iceberg, sculpted to create the maximum number of views and outdoor spaces.” Spitzerville will include a park and an esplanade along the river.

    UPDATED, 4:35 p.m., June 24 (Correction appended): All’s fair in love, war and New York City real estate. Even, it seems, a sham lawsuit to try to get some more air rights out of your neighbor.

    On Friday, real estate investor Chaim Miller — fresh off a legal battle with Silverstein Properties — filed suit against his partner Howard Wasserman to try and take full control of the Modern, a condominium development at 205 North 7th Street in Williamsburg. On Tuesday, however, Miller — through his associate Sam Sprei — told The Real Deal that the suit was nothing but a technicality to cajole a neighbor into selling extra air rights.   [more]
