One of Brooklyn’s long-stalled development sites is finally moving forward. Sales launch today for 50 Greenpoint Avenue, with nine of its 44 condos officially hitting the market.

The development has been in the works for just about a decade: a group of investors bought the site it’s sitting on in 2006 for $4.3 million, but work on the site stalled in 2009. It was recently resurrected, though, and is making strides toward occupancy in early spring of this year.

It’s one of prolific architect Karl Fischer’s many contributions to the city’s built environment, and the building in its current form will rise seven stories next to the Greenpoint waterfront. And while it is a Hot Karl joint (he’s not exactly known for his distinctive designs), there’ll be some unique touches: developer Evenhar Development Corporation is working with Hellbent, a Brooklyn street artist, to bring site-specific art to the building’s facade.

Bushwick design firm Cl-oth was in charge of the interiors, which will feature the usual high-end gloss (statuary marble slabs, swanky appliances, white-oak flooring, huge windows, you get the idea).

The developers are also touting the building’s amenities, which include many of the usual suspects—a children’s playroom, landscaped roof deck (which you can see in the renderings above), a fitness center—along with some that are only now becoming more expected, like co-working spaces and a pet spa. Though these perks are de rigueur in most Manhattan condo buildings, they’re not quite as commonly found in Greenpoint.

The pricing breakdown will be as follows: one-bedrooms will go from $699,999; two-bedrooms, from $1.15 million; and three-bedrooms, from $1.55 million. The available units range from a 710-square-foot one-bedroom asking $795,000, to a 1,246-square-foot three-bedroom, asking $1.55 million.
