Priced to sell: DUMBO condo development offers starter units in luxury setting

Planned as a sleek, modernistic structure catering to today’s busy city dweller lifestyle, 98 Front Street is DUMBO’s newest luxury condominium development.

The 11-story luxury condominium was designed by ODA New York and will have 165, studio, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences ranging from 400 sf to more than 2,000 sf. Asking prices will start at $595,000, which in the sky high real estate market of New York City, offer a rather affordable option for first-time buyers and professionals looking to buy into the hot market.

98 Front Street condos will have 10-foot ceiling heights, eight-foot solid core doors, five-inch-wide white oak flooring, and oversized insulated sound-attenuated windows. Each unit also will have Latch smart access keyless locks, Butterfly MX smart intercoms, and high-speed wiring. The building will have a 24-7 doorman.

“At 98 Front Street we set out to design an environmentally friendly, wellness-centered, and design-forward building that both stands out and compliments the neighborhood’s historic and industrial aesthetic,” said Sha Dinour, a Partner with the building’s developer, Hopestreet.  

In a market in which a small apartment can easily cost more than six figures even in a converted building, having units that are new, state-of-the-art, and available at well below a seven-figure price tag should bring a rush of buyers to the development.

The building will have an indoor salt water pool, spa, steam room, indoor and outdoor fitness centers, and a lobby with a sculptured reflecting pool. Residents will be able to access a 7,000-sf rooftop featuring barbecue grills, three outdoor kitchens, a bocce ball court, outdoor screening area, and a resident’s lounge and co-working space. Bike storage, on-site parking and resident storage units will also be available for a fee.

The project is expected to open next year.
