533 Leonard Street via Compass 533 Leonard Street via Compass
Across the river from where downtown Manhattan’s industrial buildings have seen new life as luxury condos, Williamsburg has experienced a similar renaissance. These factories-turned-residences and the new construction they continue to inspire are rich in waterfront views, double-height rooms, generous outdoor space, and rustic finishes that can’t be found in the cookie-cutter condos taking shape elsewhere in New York.

Artists were long since priced out of Williamsburg, but apartments prices are a fraction of their Manhattan counterparts: CityRealty data reports that the median condo price is $1.299 million and the median co-op price is $391K. The much-dreaded L train shutdown is the likely cause of a slight price dip in the past year, but things are picking up again to remind developers and investors alike that it’s only temporary. The thriving neighborhood, exciting history, and creative architecture are forever, as the following listings demonstrate.
