Completed last year, the boutique condo building at 55 Maspeth Ave. in East Williamsburg was designed with the neighborhood's industrial presence in mind. 

This one bedroom, one-and-a-half bath has exposed brick walls, soaring ceilings, and mosaic tile across multiple levels, as well as a rec room. Listed by Douglas Elliman for $899,000, the apartment is a short walk from the L train at Graham Avenue, and the G at Lorimer is a half-mile away, which will come in handy when the L train stops running to Manhattan next year. 

The living and dining area has 20-foot ceilings, and large windows bringing in plenty of light. Cutouts in the wall reveal exposed brick for a bit of welcome roughness amid the room's polish, and the floating stairs to the mezzanine add another stylish accent. 

There's an adjacent space that could be used as an office, den, or guest room.

The kitchen, meanwhile, is equipped with white oak shelving and high-end appliances. 

Upstairs, the bedroom looks cozy, and seems to lack a closet. The bathrooms are spacious and sleek, both with striking tiles. 

The view from above is definitely impressive.

There are no photos of the bottom level, which the floor plan shows containing a rec room, and which could offer some much-needed storage space. Note that this condo has been listed for several months and recently got a $100,000 price chop, so there may be room to negotiate more.
