Construction Wraps Up On 98 Front Street In DUMBO, Brooklyn

Exterior work is wrapping up on 98 Front Street, a ten-story residential building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by ODA, the reinforced concrete structure features the firm’s signature irregular cubic massing and will contain condominiums with 100 distinct layouts. Hope Street Capital is in charge of sales for the units, which range from studios to four-bedroom homes and start at $670,000.

New photographs from street level show the state of work at the site, which is bound by Adams Street to the east, York Street to the south, and Fleet Alley to the west. The exterior stands complete, with only minor touches outstanding along the ground floor and sidewalk, where some scaffolding and fences remain. The architecturally-finished concrete façade and large square windows make for a striking contrast to the traditional brick masonry and stone-enveloped structures characteristic of DUMBO.

The New DUMBO

DUMBO: now home to 98 Front’s LEED-certified luxury condos. Today, this neighborhood is seen as one of the best in the city for investing in real estate. But that wasn’t always the case. According to The Brooklyn Ink, in the 1970s, you could buy a square foot of land in DUMBO for under six dollars. Property values began to rise in the 1980s and really got going in the 90s with tech booms, as savvy buyers fully realized that DUMBO possessed a unique character – as well as a special proximity to downtown Manhattan. In 2020, DUMBO is the place to buy an apartment, settle down, and even start a business.

Health & Fitness Resolutions — Locally Sourced

The new year is well underway, and the holidays are just distant memories. But what about your New Year’s resolutions? Are they just memories, too?

While many of us make New Year’s resolutions, studies show that only 8 percent of us stick to them all year long. Vows to improve health and fitness are usually at the top of the list. But the crowds packing gyms in January tend to thin out by February or March. There are many reasons why fitness resolutions fall by the wayside, but a primary factor is convenience. If the gym or juice bar isn’t nearby, it’s so easy not to go. Well, there is good news: In terms of health and fitness options, it doesn’t get any more convenient than the Dumbo condominiums at 98 Front.
