A penthouse on the 88th floor of The Brooklyn Tower—the tallest building in Brooklyn—was listed for $6.075 million on Thursday.
The 93-story primarily residential mixed-use building in Downtown Brooklyn was developed by JDS Development Group and designed by SHoP Architects, with interiors by AD100 Gachot Studios.
The building has topped out, reaching its final height of 1,066 feet, but the construction still continues. Some units will be available for residents starting early next year, and this particular penthouse is expected to be fully ready to move in around spring 2023, according to Deborah Alexandre of Douglas Elliman, who is director of sales for The Brooklyn Tower.
Spanning 2,432 square feet, the penthouse features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing panoramic views from every room. The primary bedroom is on the northwest corner, offering views of the New York Harbor, as well as the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan. It has a walk-in closet and a secondary closet in addition to the en-suite bathroom.
The rest of the bedrooms face east, featuring views of the East River and the Williamsburg Bridge.
“The living room and the kitchen, or great room, sits in the triangular portion of the building, so it gives you almost a panoramic feel of the Manhattan skyline,” Ms. Alexandre told Mansion Global. “You can see where the water meets the land, the island of Manhattan and you can literally see the outline of the island, which is something that you can only really see on TV or pictures.”
The custom-designed kitchen is equipped with granite countertops and a fully-integrated suite of Miele appliances, according to the listing.
The building offers over 120,000 square feet of amenities scattered throughout different floors. On the sixth and seventh floors, there is the Athletic Club that includes a fitness center, a 75-foot indoor pool and a 75-foot outdoor pool, cocktail bars, a children’s playroom, coworking spaces, a library lounge with a conference room, and a cinema with a wet bar. Residents can also enjoy shuffleboard and billiards.
On the 66th floor, referred to as the Sky Deck, there is a basketball court, a dog run and a children’s playground. The Sky Lounge located on the 85th floor offers lounges, bars and outdoor fire pits.
The building is one stop away from Manhattan and in close proximity to parks including Prospect Park, Fort Greene Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park, according to Ms. Alexandre.
“Having easy accessibility of transportation is probably the number one factor of why people look to move to Downtown Brooklyn, but it marries itself quite nicely to the surrounding brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods that [have a] quaint Brooklyn vibe,” Ms. Alexandre said.
