Dumbo Condos Linger on the Market, Battle in the Deathcage

New, 11 comments

Imagine you have around $2,650,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 30 Main Street #8F/ 100 Jay Street #30D
Price: $2,599,000 $2,638,000
Monthly Costs: $1,705 $1,344
Square Footage: 2,209 1,772
Beds, Baths: 3, 2.5 3, 2.5

? In the Sweeney Building at 30 Main Street, this corner loft has been on the market since April with two pricechops. It totals 2,200 square feet, with bedrooms at opposite ends of the living room and a home office tucked privately behind the laundry room.

? And in the J Condominium at 100 Jay Street, this smaller, pricier pad has only been on the market since June, with one pricechop. The big difference here is outdoor space—while 30 Main has a share roofdeck, 100 Jay has an enormous private terrace totally 1,200 square feet. Is it worth giving up over 400 square feet of interior space for?
