Things are heating up in New York City as one luxury condominium sells out and another development, an environmentally friendly two-unit townhouse, launches sales.

The 505 IN HELL’S KITCHEN, designed by architect Thomas O’Hara, being 95 percent sold out has two remaining penthouses left, fully wired for a hot tub and barbeque. Situated in two buildings, with108 residences, it surrounds a garden courtyard that makes up half an acre of land.

The 505 condominium features a furnished massive two-tiered rooftop terrace, private gardens, and balconies.  It flaunts a dazzling Times Square skyline, making it the perfect outdoor living and dining oasis.

On the flip side in Boerum, Brooklyn, 93 NEVINS and 453 PACIFIC STREET, a two-unit converted townhouse, announced the opening of sales. Co-developed by R & E Brooklyn Inc. and Green Depot, as an eco-friendly and energy-efficient, it features rooftop solar panels, recycled electricity and green roof and planted terraces, providing better air quality and alternate electricity.

The town houses at 453 Pacific, 3,059 square feet, and 93 Nevins, 3079 square feet, include three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and private garages. Priced at $2,595,000 each, the surrounding neighborhood of tree-lined streets and bluestone sidewalks make an eclectic mix of old and new that you won’t want to miss out on.

“From the outset, the vision… was ambitious, innovative and inspiring,” said Sarah Beatty, President of co-developer Green Depot. “These homes are an example of how we can creatively reinvent our city buildings and neighborhoods for the better.”
