Williamsburg shows no sign of losing its status as one of Brooklyn's most interesting neighborhoods, and the latest entrant is 510 Driggs Avenue between North 8th and 9th Streets. Construction commenced at the beginning of 2019, and as the six-story structure approaches completion, sales have begun off-market on its studio to three-bedroom resdences.

The design by Woods Bagot promised to be a dynamic addition to the neighborhood, sporting a gray brick facade and variously-sized terraces and balconies. According to the sales team, led by Nest Seekers International, a number of buyers have signed contracts off of floor plans alone. Two penthouses are already accounted for, says a spokesperson for the team, and buyers have been drawn by the building's larger than average layouts and its work-from-home-centric amenities.

An offering plan with a $104.21 million sellout was accepted in June 2021. Asking prices start at $700K for studios, $965K for one-bedrooms, $1.5 million for two-bedrooms, $2.5 million for three-bedrooms, and $3.5 million for a four-bedroom. This is roughly in line with the median prices of similar caliber condos in Williamsburg (per CityRealty listings).
Of the 44 units, 39 have private outdoor space, whether an enclosed balcony, private terrace, or both. All interiors feature open-concept layouts, floor-to-ceiling curtain wall windows, European white oak floors, and in-unit washer/dryers. The kitchens come equipped with honed Grigio pearl marble countertops, custom cabinetry, eat-in peninsulas or islands, and a full suite of Miele appliances. Baths are outfitted with custom vanities, marble floors, and Toto toilets.

510 Driggs Avenue’s indoor-outdoor living mindset extends to the amenities: A lushly planted courtyard has a children’s play area, and the rooftop terrace has private cabanas and a grilling station. Indoor offerings include a lobby with a reflecting pool and cold storage, a fitness center with high-end equipment, and a lounge with a coworking space and coffee bar. Private parking and storage are available for purchase.
510 Driggs Avenue’s address one block from the Bedford Avenue L stop allows for an easy commute, but there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. The building is four blocks from McCarren Park, with its dog run, pool, sports courts, and greenmarket, and two blocks from Berry Street, which is part of New York’s Open Streets program. Additionally, the building is fairly surrounded by local restaurants, cafes, and boutiques.

The full block-front venture went up on the former site of a Wonder Foods warehouse and a redevelopment of the site has been in the works since the early 2010s. A previous design by ODA Architecture was likened to a stack of boxes and reminiscent of the firm's designs for 98 Front Street in DUMBO and The Rheingold in Bushwick.
