Brooklyn’s Top 10 Best-Selling Buildings in 2015

Where are the buildings Brooklyn buyers love most?

While property prices may be substantially lower compared to the most popular buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn’s trendy rebirth has certainly driven a substantial amount of real estate activity in the last year.

Dive into Property Shark’s countdown of the most in-demand buildings in Brooklyn based on the number of units sold!

10. Trump Village, Coney Island

Units Sold: 21
Median Price: $310,000


While significantly less glamorous in design and amenities than The Donald’s glitzy SoHo apartments, Fred Trump’s 60’s construction is still in high demand. Just moments from Brighton Beach and trending NYC neighborhood Manhattan Beach, Trump Village offers location and affordability.

9. 143 Classon, Bedford-Stuyvesant

Units Sold: 22
Median Price: $678,000

Completed by a NJ developer who obtained the property in a short sale, this prime Bed-Stuy project was quickly snapped up by eager buyers.

8. MeadowWood East at New York, Spring Creek

Units Sold: 26
Median Price: $276,000


Credited with becoming “the next Williamsburg,” East New York may be NYC’s next hottest neighborhood. Yet, rather than banishing current residents with unaffordable prices, the Daily News credits MeadowWood with becoming a national model for home ownership.

7. One Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn Heights

Units Sold: 27
Median Price: $1,300,000

With its prime spot on this list Brighton Beach’s Oceana is a firm reminder of just how popular this part of NYC is becoming with buyers. It is about as close as New Yorkers can hope to get to the Caribbean without being disconnected from Wall St.

1. 388 Bridge, Downtown Brooklyn

Units Sold: 88
Median Price: $1,326,000

The premium price tag of units at 388 Bridge clearly did not hamper sales over the last 12 months, and it became the best-selling building in Brooklyn! As one of 3 places on this year’s list for Downtown Brooklyn, property prices here could soar even higher in the months ahead as the neighborhood heats up. 388 is Brooklyn’s tallest tower, offering spectacular Manhattan views, with both rentals and condos boasting design features rivaling the very best in NYC.
