Asking $19.5 million, this just-listed penthouse at new condo tower Olympia Dumbo is currently Brooklyn’s most expensive listing. If the five-bedroom condo at 30 Front Street fetches the asking price, it will be among the borough’s most expensive sales ever. The record for Brooklyn’s priciest property sale currently belongs to the Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 8 Montague Terrace which sold for $25.5 million last year, followed by a $20.3 million Quay Tower penthouse on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The new listing also brings the big-ticket crown to Dumbo.
The 4,928-square-foot penthouse spans the entire 32nd floor, earning its lofty price tag with 360-degree views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan, and New York Harbor from within and from a private 552-square-foot terrace.
Entry is via a private elevator landing through a foyer and gallery. The light-filled living and dining areas highlight the apartment’s stunning views through walls of glass. A den/spare bedroom is just off the living room.
The Workstead-designed kitchen features a massive dining and working island inlaid with a Fior di Bosco stone slab, raked maple cabinetry, and Gaggenau appliances. A linen closet, laundry room, and powder room are tucked into the adjacent hallway.
The apartment’s primary suite faces the Manhattan Bridge. Within are double walk-in closets and an exceptional bath, a dressing area and a private linen closet.
The additional three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. This private bedroom area also includes a study just off the foyer.
Developed by Fortis Property Group and designed by Hill West Architects, Olympia Dumbo contains 76 residences ranging from one- to five-bedroom apartments. At 33 stories tall, the building, which launched sales in October, will become Dumbo’s tallest.
With a recent refocus on having everything we need at home, the amenities at Olympia are unmatched, spanning 38,000 square feet, indoors and outdoors over three levels–including a private tennis court, a bowling alley, and a porte-cochere. The seemingly endless list begins on the ground floor with a garden and a private garden lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, spin studio, boxing gym, private locker rooms, and playroom.
On the 10th floor, there’s a 60-foot indoor lap pool, a juice bar, an outdoor pool and hot tub, cabanas, BBQ areas, a children’s playground and “waterpark,” and the aforementioned full-size tennis court. Additional amenities include on-site parking, a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a package room, and private storage.
