Back in October of 2018, a $20 million penthouse in Brooklyn Heights’ Quay Tower went into contract. It’s now closed (virtually!) for $20,301,000, making it the borough’s most expensive residential sale ever. It takes the crown from the $16.7 million penthouse Matt Damon bought in late 2018 at The Standish, also in Brooklyn Heights. Andrew Anderson of Douglas Elliman, who facilitated the sale, said: “Closing on the most expensive residential sale in Brooklyn history at this period in time is a testament to the beautiful, serene homes created at Quay Tower and the desirability of waterfront living in Brooklyn Heights.”

Sales launched at the 30-story, 125-unit luxury building back in June of 2018. Just four months later, the contract was signed for this unit, a combination of two penthouses that totals 7,433 square feet and has five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and a 1,179-square-foot private terrace. All apartments at Quay Tower have Amazon Alexa devices throughout. With interiors designed by Marmol Radziner, units feature high-end finishes, Amazon Alexa devices throughout, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

According to a press release, “The buyer was originally looking at similarly sized new development residences in Tribeca but fell in love with Quay Tower’s incredible design and location on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront.” In addition to the Manhattan skyline, East River, and Brooklyn Bridge views, Quay Tower boasts a 4,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, a pet wash, music room, children’s playroom, and a 2,500-square-foot fitness center that includes Peleton bikes and the first-ever partnership with Gleason’s Boxing Gym. The buyer was also taken by Quay’s location at the southern end of Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 6. There’s an East River Ferry stop here that gets you to Wall Street in 14 minutes, as well as five playgrounds and the marina. At Pier 6, both Quay and its adjacent rental at 15 Bridge Park Drive were designed by noted architecture firm ODA.

Remaining at Quay is one three-bedroom penthouse that’s listed for $8.5 million. There are also two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom units ranging from $1,695,000 to $9,045,000. See all available units here >>
