Corcoran’s Fresh Builds
May 2022


A monthly showcase of new construction real estate
listings across the Corcoran network.

From towering new developments to single-family spec homes, these remarkable properties await their first buyers to call them home. Taking center stage this month: a modern take on an Ohio brick single-family, tranquility on the bay in the Hamptons, and views spanning the borough in Brooklyn.

New York City

What’s Here: Wave to the Statue of Liberty from the comfort of this three-bedroom waterfront residence The Solaire. Floor-to-ceiling living room windows frame the glistening Hudson River, allowing you to stare over a near-endless distance down the waterway. However, the living room doesn’t get all view-centric fun—all three bedrooms also peer over the Hudson. The building boasts a host of wonderful COOKFOX-designed amenities, including a multi-faceted residents’ lounge—kitchen, dining room, reading nooks overlooking Teardrop Park—a top-of-the-line fitness center, and a landscaped rooftop garden above Battery Park City.

What We Love: The Solaire was the country’s first high-rise to earn LEED Gold certification, achieving this with green innovations like planted roofs, rainwater retention and water reclamation systems, and a façade partially made of photovoltaic panels.

List: $3,200,000.

What’s Here: It’s not all a facade at the storied Polhemus building in Cobble Hill. Behind the limestone-brick exterior of this historic French Renaissance-style structure awaits a glorious three-bed penthouse condo that is ready to flaunt the specialness it’s got. The entry foyer points you directly toward a striking open plan living room-kitchen sitting under 11-foot-high ceilings. Stupendous hand-crafted oak windows gaze across brownstone Brooklyn with glimpses of One World Trade Center to boot—vivacious views for whether you’re hosting a dinner party or enjoying a quiet breakfast at the stone center island. Additional perspectives of the outside world are spotted from the primary bedroom, which faces northwest over the harbor and offers nightly sunset vistas.

What We Love: Ascend an oak staircase to this home’s crown jewel: a divine private roof terrace impossible to not fall for and pass hours away with. All the interior’s scenic sights are only enhanced from up there, alongside fabulous features like a fireplace, a barbecue grill, and a television.

East End

What’s Here: An added boost of tranquil modernity to the sumptuous sandy shores of Water Mill. The construction of this two-bed on Mecox Bay’s edge is fantastic news for people who love waterside views. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows provide 360 degrees worth of splendid scenery—of the serene bay and the surrounding landscape. They also allow light to flow across the home’s mahogany floors and accents, creating a home that feels radiant and relaxed in totality. Both bedrooms boast ensuite baths, while rooftop solar panels ensure you can luxuriate in energy efficiency. 

What We Love: Due to the East End’s charmingly irregular landscape, living on the bay doesn’t mean being far from the ocean. In fact, two pristine Atlantic beaches are right around the corner from your front door.

Northwest Florida

What’s Here: A jaunty and delightful four-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath house sits on a corner lot in Seacrest Beach, part of the beautiful 30A Corridor. The front of the house welcomes you with its gas lanterns and custom Mahogany doors and inside, you’ll find a spacious floor plan with an elevated nautical vibe. Shiplap walls throughout give the rooms a maritime flair and one long bedroom has six built-in bunk beds that make it the perfect sleeping cabin for the whole kid crew. With ten-foot ceilings and plenty of windows, the house feels airy and comfortable and is just a shell’s throw away from the tranquil beaches of Florida’s Emerald Coast. 

What We Love: Between the front and back of the house, there are three well-proportioned balconies, the largest of which has a built-in grill, a ceiling fan, and plenty of room for both an outdoor dining and a living area—excellent for meals and relaxing al fresco

Northern California

What’s Here:  Located in the heart of the Mission, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is one of a six-unit development. Paige Ross Development and Winder Gibson Architects designed each of these city residences to reflect modern living in 2022, with an open floor plan for the living, dining, and kitchen area, while creating private zones for each of the bedrooms. The primary suite has a spa-like bathroom with dual sinks and custom cabinets, while the second bedroom has its own balcony, with room for seating. 

What We Love: The refinement of the details and finishes in the apartment set it apart, with wide-plank oak flooring, designer lighting, and a kitchen that boasts custom walnut cabinets, integrated appliances, and marble counters and backsplash.

What’s Here: A chic, contemporary take on a brick house sits on a corner lot in German Village, near Schiller Park. With four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a fireplace in the living room, attached two-car garage, and a finished basement, this residence has the bones of a traditional single-family house, but presented with a modern edge. The kitchen has built-in appliances, a large waterfall kitchen island with room for seating along the side and its own sink, plus a microwave, dishwasher, and storage.

What We Love: There’s quite a lot of outdoor space here for a city dwelling, including a giant rooftop deck and a fenced-in backyard that also runs along the side of the house. There’s room for a grill and seating on both the roof and in the yard—splendid for parties.

North Carolina

What’s Here: A bright and breezy two-level house with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms is neatly carved into public and private zones. On the main level, there’s an open-floor plan that encompasses a great room with a fireplace, as well as a chef’s kitchen with Fisher & Paykel and Bosch appliances (including a wine refrigerator), custom cabinets, a large waterfall island, and dual ovens. There’s also a separate home office on the first floor as well, ideal when silence is needed for Zoom calls and concentration.

What We Love: In addition to the backyard and patio—easily accessed from the great room via large sliding doorsthere’s an expansive covered terrace on the second floor that is connected to a second living room that can be used as a den or play area.
