The Heights is sold out! According to city records, the penthouse, and last available unit of the Brooklyn Heights condominium, has officially sold for $4.95 million. This extraordinary apartment at 30 Henry Street, listed by Corcoran Group’s Deborah Rieders, touts one of the most expensive prices in Brooklyn, at approximately $1,730 per square foot.
Getting a glimpse into this apartment is like trying to spot a rare bird, but from what we’ve gleaned, it’s pretty splendid. The luxury building replaced the home of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and has been the subject of a lot of speculation from the day the filings were discovered. At one point it was rumored that BKSK Architects was planning for the building to have a waterfall! From what we can see, it appears the waterfall ultimately became a fountain in the courtyard but hey, what’s a legend if not the subject of grandeur?
The penthouse apartment is 2,861 square feet, taking up the entire floor of the building, with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a private roof deck. There’s also a terrace overlooking the beautifully landscaped courtyard. The spacious living room has large windows with romantic Juliet balconies. The marble baths have soaking tubs and seamless glass shower enclosures. And the kitchen has an island with seating and a built-in espresso machine, because a true designer understands that the key to harmonious living is making sure everyone gets their coffee.
Add to that the building’s location in one of Brooklyn’s most prestigious neighborhoods, and its proximity to The Promenade, where you can eat Haagen Dazs and look out over the East River at the Manhattan skyline, and it’s no wonder this exceptional building commands such high value. We say worth every penny.
