So far, units at Brooklyn hot topic Toren have been closing at or slightly above full asking price, with the exception of a 15-percent-off 1BR and, more recently, a 1BR sold at 4.9 percent off. The building's average recorded sales price so far is $723/square foot. Not a bad performance for the SOM-designed Downtown Brooklyn tower. Which means it's time for...the PriceChopper? Apparently, as the building's StreetEasy page reveals choppage on a handful of the apartments still on the market. Maybe the six units recently visited by the Chopper are just the least desirable of the bunch, because their prices are now 6 to 22 percent less than they were yesterday. The biggest cuts came on apartments #601 and #604, which are now asking $895,000 and $480,000, respectively. Want to check the choppage on the rest?
