Online PR News – 29-January-2012 – – Brooklyn, NY, January 27, 2012 /PressReleasePing/ -- Jade 8 (www.jade8condos.com), an exclusive collection of just eight “Green” condominiums in Brooklyn’s fashionable Gowanus neighborhood, has opened its doors to the public with one contract already signed.
Interestingly, the initial sale at Jade 8 was for one of the most expensive homes in the cutting-edge, four-story building: a 1,475 square-foot Penthouse duplex, according to Warren Lewis Realty, the exclusive marketing and sales agent for the upscale offering of eco-chic residences which is located just steps from the subway and the hip restaurants, stores and artist studios that define this neighborhood.
The two-story penthouse residence features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spectacular upper-level master suite and 365 square feet of private outdoor space thanks to a huge deck off the master bedroom and separate terrace off the living and dining room.
The distinctive mix of homes at Jade 8 includes generous two-bedroom simplexes with private balconies, oversized one-bedroom garden duplexes, and another three-bedroom Penthouse duplex with balcony and expansive private deck. Residences range in size from 905 to 1,475 square feet at prices ranging from $725,000 to $1,150,000
“Selling one of our highest priced homes just as we’re officially launching the building demonstrates the appeal of Jade 8 and the level of confidence buyers are already expressing in this unique new residential building,” notes Aroza Sanjana, President of the locally-based Warren Lewis Realty. “The combination of dramatic living spaces, upscale finishes and appointments, advanced energy-efficient systems and materials, and a limited offering which translates to a more intimate lifestyle and a quicker sell-out, is already proving to be a winning formula.”
Located at 186 8th Street, Jade 8 is being developed by an experienced builder with two LEED-certified Brooklyn developments to his credit. Jade 8 was designed with an environmentally-sensitive approach to new construction. State-of-the-art Green construction techniques will allow residences to provide greater comfort and lower energy bills and include energy-saving features that make them significantly more efficient than conventional condominium homes.
Included in the healthier and more efficient lifestyle awaiting homeowners at Jade 8 are fresh air filtration systems via heat recovery ventilation (“HRV”), Low VOC paint, LED lighting, energy-efficient Loewen windows and recycled materials such as sound insulation for the floors and Caesar stone kitchen countertops.
The building’s rain screen façade insulates, ventilates and deflects moisture, while a “Green” roof further promotes drainage and cooling. Each residence also has high-efficiency heat pumps and A/C units, providing homeowners the option to purchase Green energy resulting in a zero carbon footprint. Kitchens are equipped with magnetic induction cook tops and convection ovens resulting in a cooler, more efficient cooking environment.
Designed by Sears-Tambasco Architects, Jade 8 features a striking exterior notable for its smooth orange and light grey façade with contemporary windows and upscale accents and details -- a modern interpretation of traditional Brooklyn architecture. The common Green roof is currently being planted and will provide residents additional shared outdoor space.
“Residents of Jade 8 will enjoy all of Brooklyn’s unique and exciting appeal, including a vibrant selection of galleries and restaurants and the classic urban feel of a factory-filled neighborhood reclaimed by entrepreneurs and artists.” says Virginia Hunter, VP, Associate Broker at Warren Lewis Realty.
