Condo sales start at Brooklyn’s first-ever ‘supertall’ residential tower
Units will range in price from a mere $875,000 for a studio and up to $8 million for a four-bedroom
If Brooklyn real estate were a shark, how high would one have to jump to clear that shark? We may an answer: Condos in Brooklyn’s first-ever “supertall” skyscraper, which stretches 1,066 feet into the air, are now on sale. It is the city’s first supertall tower—defined as exceeding 984 feet—to be built outside of Manhattan.
The aptly named “Brooklyn Tower,” built by JDS Development Group at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown, is 93-stories high and has 150 condominiums beginning on its 53rd floor. Prices range from $875,000 for a studio and up to $8 million for a four-bedroom. Penthouse prices weren’t yet released, in case you’re holding out for that.
As would be expected, the condos have high-end finishings including European white oak flooring in an “elegant honey stain,” 11-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows with views of basically every neighborhood, and kitchens with “top-of-the-line” Miele appliances. There’s also your usual bevy of perks, like a gym, indoor lap pool and even the world’s highest dog run on the 66th floor.
Notably, the tower shoots skyward from the landmark Dime Savings Bank, built in 1908, where the developers have added an outdoor pool. The restored bank space itself is being transformed into retail for lease later this year.
Renters won’t be left out. Of the 400 units for rent in the lower levels, about 30 percent will be reserved for “middle-income” renters (in exchange for tax breaks). Prices will be released later this year.
Brooklyn Tower is opening as real estate prices are hitting record highs for renters and buyers. And for those keeping track, condo tower Brooklyn Point, located nearby, will become the borough’s second tallest building by about 350 feet. As the New York Times notes, that’s “difference of a Statue of Liberty, plus a few townhouses stacked on top.”
