It was, sadly, inevitable. A tipster emails, "358 Grove offers 185 condo units (13-stories) in a kind of blighted area of Bushwick off the Myrtle Avenue L stop. The small mid-section area of Bushwick shows no signs of gentrification yet, but I would expect it shortly. I'd like to hear what others have to say about this—I am a Bushwicker!"
Glory! A glossy new development in Bushwick, with its own annoying Flash website and everything! According to the listings at Halstead, apartments run from $270,000 to "our top of the line 3 bedroom 2 bath Duplex with 16' ceiling, 2 floor to ceiling walls of windows, with breath taking views of Manhattan for $682,233." Buyers, however, might want to beware some of the website's bolder claims.
