Today, developer Hopestreet has announced the sales launch for 165 condominiums at 98 Front Street, nestled between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges in DUMBO. The eye-catching, Cubist design comes courtesy of avant-garde architecture firm ODA New York. Units range from studios to four bedrooms, span 400 to over 2,000 square feet, and start at $670,000, with buyers able to put just five percent down and another five percent six months later. (This means the down payment for a studio would be just over $30,000.) The 11-story, amenity-laden property is expected to open doors in spring 2020.

 

The days of DUMBO as a development frontier are long gone, and undeveloped lots grow scarce in the densely-built neighborhood. 98 Front Street rises upon one of the largest undeveloped sites in the waterfront district, replacing a single-story warehouse. The building’s Brutalist facade (derived from French “beton brut,” meaning “raw concrete”) references the concrete frames of nearby “daylight factories” from early twentieth century, many of which have since been converted into some of the city’s most sought-after lofts.

The amenity list features a 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager, smart access keyless locks and intercom, saltwater pool, steam room, spa, and a fitness center. Bike storage, on-site parking and resident storage units are available for an additional fee. Take a closer look at these and other perks at the official building website.

The units come packaged with high-end finishes and appliances, such as large, soundproofed windows, 8-foot-tall solid core doors, white oak flooring in the living rooms, matching white oak cabinetry and Corian countertops in the kitchens, and marble floors in the bathrooms.

 

The dynamic facade lends the building not only visual delight, but also generates staggering flexibility in interior arrangements, with over 100 unique apartment layouts. The gesture follows in the driving concepts of Eran Chen, the architecture firm’s principal. "At ODA we believe that the expansion of a building’s envelope allows us to discover new architectural dimensions,” says Chen. "At 98 Front, we have been able to apply this concept that ultimately expand­s the threshold of a building—one that functions as a living envelope for its residents."

While niches and decks that emerge through the design make for cozy private terraces, the expansive rooftop, which opens onto the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines, serves as a 7,000-square-foot common yard in the sky, with an open-air screening area, a bocce ball court, several outdoor kitchens, and barbecue stations.

 

ODA’s signature boxy architecture is also on view at many of their other NYC projects, particularly the similarly-massed rental at 22-22 Jackson Avenue, another collaboration between ODA and Hopestreet in Long Island City’s booming Court Square district.
