If you thought it’d take at least $1 million to buy an apartment along the Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront, here’s something that’s (a little) cheaper. Unit #306 at 360 Furman Street–aka One Brooklyn Bridge Park–is the cheapest unit up for sale currently in the building, asking $895,000. At that price point, it doesn’t look like you’re getting views of the water or Lower Manhattan. But you still get a decent amount of space and a pretty cool, custom-designed storage system.
The One Brooklyn Bridge Park development is actually a former Brooklyn Heights waterfront warehouse constructed in 1928. The units come with these truly distinctive, large windows that dominate the rooms (in a good way) and bring in great light. There are also columns and 13-foot ceilings to create a lofty vibe. Because this unit isn’t a proper one bedroom, the current owner decided to separate the living area from the bedroom with a custom-made storage wall designed by Jane Kim Design and Jon Cole Studio. Talk about a great idea to break up a studio and also create tons of storage: the living room side holds bookshelves and there’s a desk, drawers, and TV cabinet on the bedroom side.
The living room opens up into the kitchen. In total, the apartment spans 782 square feet–not bad for a studio. There’s even enough room outside the kitchen to set up a modest dining room table.
According to the listing this is a “custom Italian kitchen by Dada” with a quartz center island and nice appliances. We do like those large wood cabinets.
And behind the storage wall, you’ll find the bedroom. The wall really does a good job of making this feel like a one-bedroom and not a big studio. The apartment sale comes with this nice extra feature.
Although you don’t have views of Brooklyn Bridge Park from here, it’s still right at your fingertips. Upon leaving this unit, you’re greeted with the 85-acre waterfront park, and you’re also within walking distance of the promenade along the water and several charming brownstone neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, and Boerum Hill.
