The impressive amenities at Dumbo’s latest luxury tower are now complete and new photos provide a first look at the stunning spaces. Olympia Dumbo, the neighborhood’s tallest and most expensive residential building, offers 38,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities spread across three floors, including New York City’s highest private outdoor tennis court, indoor and outdoor pools, and a playroom, shipwreck-themed playground, and waterpark for kids.
Developed by Fortis Property Group and designed by Hill West Architects, Olympia Dumbo contains a total of 76 one- to five-bedroom residences and penthouses designed by Workstead. While the building’s unique sail-shaped and its meticulously designed residences are a sight to behold, Olympia’s amenities suite is on another level.
The amenity package takes up three floors: The Garden, The Bridge, and The Club. The club, located on the building’s lower level, is centered on fun and fitness. Here you’ll find a game lounge, bar, bowling alley, fitness center, spin studio, boxing gym, and a maritime-themed children’s playroom.
Masterfully crafted by Workstead, the garden is located on the ground floor and is where the “heights of Olympia come down to Earth,” according to the building’s website.
Featuring Workstead’s signature use of sculptural details etched into stone and wood, the entrance includes the building’s triple-height lobby and an elevated garden lounge that overlooks a private garden.
The bridge is located on the 10th floor and offers indoor and outdoor amenities centered around recreation and relaxation. Features include both an indoor and outdoor pool, a treatment room, a dry sauna, a steam room, a juice bar, a landscaped park, cabanas, barbecue areas, a shipwreck-themed children’s playground, and the city’s highest private tennis court that overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge.
Olympia Dumbo is shaped like a sail, with the building’s mass receding as it rises. This allows for no more than six units per floor and a pair of full-floor penthouses at the top of the building. Many of the residences feature ceiling heights as tall as 18 feet, wide plank flooring, private terraces, and outdoor spaces.
The building has broken several real estate records for the highly sought-after Brooklyn neighborhood, appearing as the top condo contract in the weekly Brooklyn luxury reports 27 times since 2022, including six times at the number one spot. Olympia has appeared in the list of the top 20 sponsor sales more than any other building in the borough’s history, according to the building’s public relations team.
Sales launched at the tower in October 2021. More than half of the building’s residences have already been sold, recently welcoming high-profile residents including Brooklyn Nets point guard Ben Simmons.
In January, a penthouse in the Olympia sold for $17,500,000 making it the neighborhood’s priciest sale on record. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom penthouse on the 33rd floor boasts a nearly 500-square-foot terrace facing the East River.
Current availabilities at Olympia Dumbo start at $1,995,000, according to CityRealty.
