Bedding down, thanks to MySpace

Madison is a young, single Brooklynite who just graduated from Harvard Business School. She reads the New York Times, listens to hip-hop and jazz and is bisexual, all of which she talks about on her MySpace page.

Her friend Dakota is a “swinger” and a “freaking sex machine” who wants to meet “people who want more out of life.” She’s not picky.

“I like couples and/or singles. Hell, I’d even dig the idea of families joining in,” she writes on her own MySpace page. “I want all the hipsters that are too hip for Williamsburg. I want all the East Villagers to have more space to create in.”

Want to meet these hot babes? Alas, you’ll have to wait until they’re built.

For Madison and Dakota are not potential mates, but merely two of six condo towers that will soon rise on Pacific Street, near Washington Avenue, in rapidly gentrifying Prospect Heights.

Each building has its own mySpace page. The real-estate blog, onehansonplace.com, first reported the story and credited the local real-estate firm of Aguayo and Huebener with the clever — or, frankly, not so clever — sales pitch.

“It looks like [they] hired a marketing mind never really seen before in real estate,” the blog said.

Other buildings are a little less kinky: “Hudson” is a married 27-year-old with kids; Sydney is a smoker, a drinker and straight; Austin likes watch TV with friends (he has 800 channels); and Montana likes XM Radio and counts her mom as one of her heroes.

And though they market themselves as easy, they’re not cheap: Studio apartments at Madison and her friends start at $324,000.

Peggy Aguayo of the Park Slope–based company didn’t want to comment on the MySpace marketing until the company is ready to reveal the details later this month.

“The pages are up and some word got leaked, but I don’t want to say anything more,” Aguayo told The Brooklyn Paper.

The buildings are already going up. Can spam emails be far behind?
