Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.


If a Brooklyn condo building is filled with apartments that have completely nonsensical, useless layouts, there is a good chance that it was designed by one Robert Scarano. And for this Williamsburg one-bedroom, the bizarre, two-level, kind of C-shaped floorplan was a dead giveaway. It's located at 134-136 Powers Street, one of the many buildings Scarano plagued Brooklyn with before he was banned from building in 2010 (but he's back now, and he brought worms). If the weird layout wasn't bad enough, the main living space painted an unflattering turquoise. The unit has sold three times since the building opened, and the price is up to a whopping $850,000—up $50,000 from when it listed temporarily in February. At $1,192 per square foot, it seems wildly overpriced for a Scarano creation.
