163 Washington Ave.
Clinton Hill’s tallest residential condominium, at 163 Washington Avenue between Myrtle and Park avenues, is set to launch sales this Sunday. At 16 stories high, the glass tower is “a one-of-a-kind development, but priced for today’s market,” said Richard Esposito, director of construction for the GLC Group, the developer. The 49-unit condo was designed by Karl Fischer with interiors by Anne Jalbert and Gold Group Designs. Units range from 440-square-foot studios to 1,156-square-foot two-bedrooms, almost all of which have terraces or balconies featuring floor-to-ceiling window views of Manhattan. Prices start at $250,000 and occupancy is slated for January 2011. The building is approved by the Federal Housing Administration, which allows buyers to put down as little as 3.5 percent, and is also approved for a 421-a tax abatement. The Developer’s Group, New Development Division of the Real Estate Group NY, is handling marketing and sales for the project. Condo amenities include outdoor barbecues, a media room, a common rooftop terrace, a gym, a yoga garden and parking. TRD
