Looking for Magic in Greenpoint

By Lisa Abramowicz | June 11, 2008 10:59AM

From the June issue: Basketball icon Earvin “Magic” Johnson Jr.’s development at 110 Green Street in Brooklyn is preparing to open its doors to potential buyers this summer, but brokers don’t know what to expect in terms of sales success for the much buzzed-about building. The six-story Greenpoint condo, recently dubbed the Viridian, was conceived more than a year ago in a bull market. It is also something of a pioneer: It’s the first amenity-laden luxury building to sprout up in this quiet, fringe neighborhood of low-rise residential and industrial buildings. But while the building will offer an indoor pool, putting green, 67 on-site parking spots and a fitness center, it is connected to the city’s subway grid by only the G train, which doesn’t go into Manhattan and is known for its spotty service.
