The condo building at 2 Northside Piers was one of the first residential developments along the Williamsburg waterfront, which has afforded it completely unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline. This 20th-floor, five-bedroom unit is perfect proof of this, with panoramic views of the river and the city. And in addition to three balconies, the duplex unit also has an 822-square-foot rooftop cabana complete with a full outdoor kitchen. It’s for sale asking $8,250,000.

The main living areas are on the lower floor, which is anchored by a custom-designed Helika Lux glass and steel spiral staircase by CAST. A wall of windows frames Manhattan skyline views and opens to the first terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a full suite of Gaggenau appliances including electric and steam ovens, a gas stovetop with a vented hood, microwave and warming drawers, a 36-inch fridge, an 18-inch freezer, and a dishwasher.

In addition, there are beautiful statuary marble counters, custom cabinetry, two pullout pantries, a breakfast bar, an 11’5” x 5’5” pantry, a charging station, and a 150-bottle two-zone Liebherr wine fridge. There’s also a built-in desk nook.


There are two secondary bedrooms on the first level, both of which have en-suite bathrooms and ample closet space. In the hall, there’s a powder room and laundry room.

The primary bedroom suite rounds out the first floor, occupying the entire southern side. The corner bedroom has custom storage, a dropdown projector/screen, and views of the city, river, and Williamsburg Bridge. A study that’s full of custom built-ins opens to a south-facing terrace. There’s also a large windowed dressing room and a spa bath, tastefully finished with grey and white zebra stripe marble.

Upstairs, there is another living room, with even more stunning views, a custom-built bar, and a drop-down projector/screen. The third balcony is off this room.

Off the living room is a bedroom that could also be used as a bonus room. It has an en-suite bathroom.

The other bedroom on this floor occupies the northeast corner and has a cozy reading nook, many closets, and an en-suite bathroom.

But, of course, the most unique feature of the home is the 32nd-floor rooftop cabana. As the listing states, “hugging the prime corner of the building and beholding the most jaw-dropping Manhattan views,” the cabana is outfitted with water, electric, and gas. The outdoor kitchen has a BBQ and side burner, ice maker, ice chest, ample storage, cutting board, and fridge. In addition, the outdoor space has plus lush landscaping with irrigation, atmospheric lighting, a heat lamp, and even WiFi. This unit also comes with a storage unit.

The building itself offers great amenities including a 24/7 doorman, concierge service, on-site valet and parking garage, heated indoor pool and hot tub, fitness center, saunas, massage/yoga rooms, screening rooms, lounges, children’s playroom, and refrigerated storage. Plus, right outside is a 400-foot pier and waterfront esplanade with access to the East River Ferry, as well as a big waterfront park with a soccer field.
