Development Notebook: So, This Thing is Called “Green on Dean”

February 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

We featured this baby back in early December because it struck us as a perfect example of out-of-context architecture: a tall, modern building towering over a row of beautiful low-rise wood frame houses on a block of Dean Street that has a lot of them. It’s 357 Dean Street and this weekend we were overjoyed that it’s not a fugly blight on the neighborhood, it’s actually an environmentally sensitive development that’s on the market as Green on Dean. Boy, are we relieved. It’s not an ugly looking hunk of architectural dookie. It’s state of the art green construction. It’s “true eco-luxury” with more amenities than you can count on fifteen hands. So, all is forgiven. There are six units on sale for $759K and they’ve already gotten BuzzCuts of $21,000 each, per Streeteasy. We’re thinking the haircut isn’t over before this eco-luxury finds some buyers. What do you think?
