Dumbo Clock Tower penthouse finally sells for $15M, is borough’s priciest condo ever sold

April 3, 2017

And just like that, the record for the most expensive condo ever sold in Brooklyn has been broken. A triplex penthouse at 1 Main Street, atop the Clock Tower building in Dumbo, sold for $15 million, beating out a unit at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pierhouse that closed for nearly $10.6 million just last month. As the New York Post reported, the historic unit had a hard time finding a buyer; it sat on the market for nearly six years, switched brokerages and chopping its price tag several times.

The pad was last purchased by an unknown buyer in 2006 for $10.75 million and then re-entered the market in August of 2009 for $25 million. It was removed until 2013, when a new broker listed it for $18 million. The new buyer, who entered a contract in June 2016, purchased the unit through an anonymous LLC. The unit boasts three bedrooms, three and a half baths and of course, spectacular views.

The huge, open layout of this 11.5 roomed unit is perfect for entertaining. Plus, the four 14-foot glass clocks offer unique 360-degree views of everything from the Verrazano Bridge to the Empire State Building. Other pluses include high ceilings, ranging from 15 to 50 feet, and a custom glass-enclosed, three-story private elevator.

The one-of-a-kind kitchen has white lacquer cabinets, Pietra Cardosa sandstone and stainless steel countertops, with integral sinks. The master suite and its en-suite bath provide incredible views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, all from the comfort of your bathtub.

While this Clock Tower unit currently holds the record for the priciest condo ever sold in Brooklyn, a penthouse at One Brooklyn Bridge Park hit the market in 2015 at $32 million, and if sold, would easily take the highest price tag title.
