While we can't predict the future, in the near term New York apartment-seekers are desiring larger homes, private outdoor space, home offices, and access to greenery and sunlight. While these desires seem fundamental to many outside of the city, living in a highly pressurized, expensive urban environment can cause one to overlook some of the mainstays as a trade-off for a shorter commute or great deal. With more New Yorkers spending more time at home and reprioritizing their living situations, developers and sellers are quickly adapting, highlighting many of those aforementioned characteristics in their listings.
Over in South Slope/Greenwood Heights, an easy-paced Brooklyn neighborhood known for its low scale and humble charm, a beautiful new condominium has taken shape by the hand of Marin Architects. Named 305 Twenty Third for its address between 6th and 7th Avenues, all eleven of its residences present buyers with private outdoor space and gracious layouts infused with sunlight. Furthermore, the building offers an invigorating amenity suite that comprises a leafy roof deck and a flexible resident lounge that opens onto a landscaped garden.
305 Twenty Third
305 Twenty Third's exterior design is among the best we've seen. While filling out its zoning allowance, the building's scale remains sensitive to adjacent multifamily homes and the historic Green-Wood Cemetery across the street. Deep balconies tastefully recess at its corners, and a stately brick facade is punctuated by large rectangular windows fronted by flower boxes. Set on a tree-lined residential street, the ground floor is buffered with greenery, and entries highlighted with wood accents. Tucked behind a black-corniced parapet, a shared roof deck is elegantly crowned with a trellis for vegetation to grow.
With the flexibility of no more than two apartments per floor, interiors are thoughtful and intelligently configured. The open kitchens have plenty of storage by way of dual-tone custom cabinetry. A Trambiserra honed marble countertop anchors the space and state-of-the-art appliances by Liebherr, Bosch, and LG are seamlessly concealed.

The building overlooks Green-Wood Cemetery, which is often considered Brooklyn's first public park, opened in 1837 decades before the opening of Prospect Park. Its 478 acres of winding paths and 600 trees is the final resting place of great New York luminaries such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, F.A.O Schwarz, Samuel Morse, Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Horace Greeley. Truly celebrity real estate.
