The votes have been counted. 6sqft’s 2022 Building of the Year is Olympia Dumbo, the new 33-story condo tower on the Brooklyn waterfront. The Hill West Architects-designed project sailed over the competition, receiving 779 votes, or 26.8 percent of the 2,903 total votes cast. Developed by Fortis Property Group, Olympia Dumbo contains 76 residences and offers 38,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities that put health and wellness at the forefront.

Because of its unique sail-inspired design, Olympia Dumbo’s mass recedes as it rises, allowing for no more than six units per floor and a pair of full-floor penthouses at the top of the building. At 33 stories tall, Olympia is currently the tallest tower in the historic neighborhood. Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor for the property.
Residences, designed by Workstead, feature ceiling heights up to 18 feet tall, wide plank flooring, and picture-perfect views. Many of the units also have private terraces and outdoor spaces.
Amenities stretch across three levels of both indoor and outdoor spaces. Residents can enjoy a private garden lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spin studio, a boxing gym, and private locker rooms on the ground floor. On the lower level, there is a bowling alley, bar, game lounge, and kid’s playroom.
The aptly-named “bridge” level on the 10th floor is home to a 60-foot indoor lap pool, juice bar, an outdoor pool, a children’s playground and “waterpark,” and an outdoor private tennis court that overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge.
Sales launched at the tower last fall. Current availabilities are priced from $1,785,000 for a one-bedroom to a $17,500,000 penthouse.
“We’re incredibly proud that the project’s exceptional design was recognized not only by our buyers this year, but also by the architectural and the real estate communities, as well as the public,” Casey Drake, the vice president of sales and marketing at Fortis Property Group, told 6sqft in a statement. “As the premier residential project in Brooklyn, we worked hard to achieve a unique building with a thoughtful design that sets a new standard for luxury.”
