The well-publicized Downtown Brooklyn condo glut is about to get tested even more, because Myrtle Minutes points out that the Oro Condos on Gold Street and Flatbush Avenue are now for sale through Elliman. Architect Ismael Leyva knows a thing or two about buildings that tower over their surroundings (see 785 Eigth Avenue), and this 40-story full-service behemoth definitely belongs in that group. So what's the damage? Thirteen units are currently listed, and two are already in contract. You can still get in on the low-end, with a $366,000 484-square-foot studio. If your tastes are more refined, the $995,000 two-bedroom that's floorplan'd above should do the trick. Of its 1,334 square feet, our favorite few has to be the back-to-back toilets. Hopefully the wall is thin enough that you can have a nice chat with your loved one after a night of Taco Bell.
