Recognizable from what seems like miles away by its iconic clock tower, One Hanson Place was built in 1927 as the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower. Converted to 175 residential condominiums in 2006, it has been called “the finest landmarked skyscraper in Brooklyn and one of the best Art Deco towers in New York City.” With its prime Fort Greene location in the BAM cultural district and at a crossroads where several great Brooklyn neighborhoods meet, interiors feature loft-like details, and building amenities include a gym, lots of additional storage and a sky lounge and terraces with even more dizzying city views (just to name a few). The flexibility of condo ownership makes apartments in the building a good investment, too.

This well-configured studio may not be large, but it has the same prewar loft details and modern finishes as any unit in the building; what it also has–something much larger units may not–is soaring city views from the 14th floor of Brooklyn’s tallest landmarked building.

This compact and carefully-appointed studio has been designed to maximize space and take advantage of impressive loft details like beamed 11-foot ceilings and clean architectural lines.

Kitchen features are optimal as well; custom white lacquer cabinetry complements a Miele cooktop, range and dishwasher and a Sub-Zero fridge. Additional creature comforts include central heat and air.

As mentioned, building amenities are impressive, and it’s hard to beat the location for convenience: Nearly every subway in the city–and the Long Island Railroad–stops across the street.
