It may pale in comparison to Manhattan’s $100 million record-setter at One57, but a unit at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pierhouse just closed for $10,669,579, setting the record for most expensive condo ever sold in the borough. Curbed first spotted the sale, which took the top spot from the $8.8 million penthouse sale in Dumbo’s 1 Jay Street in September 2015.

As Curbed notes, the Pierhouse development has seen several pricey sales over the past year. This past November and December, a three- and a four-bedroom condo each sold for more than $7 million, and in January a $7.6 million sale was the most expensive in Brooklyn for the month. Of the 106 units on the market at the Brooklyn Heights development, an $11,179,000 three-bedroom is currently in contract, so this new record may be short-lived. There’s also a $24 million penthouse on the market nearby at One Brooklyn Bridge Park (it originally listed for a whopping $32 million).

Specifics on the $10.6 unit weren’t publicly available, but the buyers are Goldman Sachs mergers bigwig Timothy Ingrassia and his wife Stephanie, president of the board at the Brooklyn Museum. The couple, well-known arts philanthropists and contemporary art collectors, bought a $10.75 million Brooklyn Heights townhouse in 2006, but sold it the following year for a mere $5.7 million. The couple also owns a large Connecticut farmhouse where they run a vineyard.
