A new Toll Brothers development in Dumbo has a waiting list of 1,100,
the Brooklyn Eagle reported. The property, at 205 Water Street, is still
under construction, and is estimated to be ready for sales and
marketing in September
, with closings commencing in spring 2012.
The design, by architecture firm GreenbergFarrow, had the aim of reflecting the project’s
loft-like industrial neighbors. “We have a list of about 1,100 names
of people interested in this project,” Todd Dumaresq, marketing
manager at Toll Brothers City Living, told the Eagle on a tour of 205
Water Street, between Bridge Street and Jay Street, last week. “And sales should go very quickly. According to
David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president, “Dumbo is a very desirable neighborhood. It’s a
small neighborhood but there’s a lot of pent-up demand.”

Sustainable
elements are also an important part of the project, which incorporates Coney
Island Boardwalk planks and other reclaimed woods repurposed as
architectural accents and furniture. More than 50 percent of the total
value of materials used to construct the building was harvested,
recovered or manufactured within 500 miles of Dumbo, including
concrete, doors, windows frames and drywall. Von Spreckelsen said the
firm has achieved LEED certification on all of its buildings in
Brooklyn. “This one will attain the highest yet: LEED-Gold,” he said.
