When a residential building is called the Skytrack Condominium, you know the roof deck is going to be awesome. This building, at 120 Boerum Place in Boerum Hill, was originally a manufacturing building back when the neighborhood was filled with boarding houses for ironworkers working on Manhattan’s bridges and skyscrapers. The building went condo in 1983 and maintained many of the old industrial interior details, including a “skytrack” that wraps around the roof of the building. The track, which runs around the perimeter of the building’s roof deck, is now used as a walking or jogging path by residents.
While residents share the roof deck distinguished by the “skytrack” feature, this condo up for sale comes with even more outdoor space. A private deck off the master bedroom—with its very own skytrack (!)—is a nice perk of the lofty duplex going for $1.575M.
Before we get to all that outdoor space, let’s make our way through the lofty apartment. On the lower level, you have a huge, open space alongside an open kitchen. (There’s enough room to build out two bedrooms down here, according to the floor plan.) Under 12-foot ceilings, you have an impressive 54.5 feet in front of you once you enter the front door. The back of the apartment is outfitted with six big windows.
Along the ceilings, the piping has been left exposed to keep the industrial vibe. Right outside the open kitchen, there’s enough space for a cute breakfast bar as well as a 16-person dining room table. The current owners have used a bookshelf to break up the big open space. Also on the main floor: a full bath with Jacuzzi tub, a washer and dryer and lots of storage space.
Up the stairs you’ve got a huge master bedroom, as well as an ensuite bathroom. There are not one, but two (!) walk-in closets off this bedroom. Then, of course, there are the glass doors that will lead you out onto the private 339 square-foot deck that’s outfitted with plantings, furniture and its own skytrack.
Here’s a look at the patio, providing its own private walking path–now that’s an outdoor amenity you don’t see every day. This building is actually full of cool outdoor spaces. Another unit we featured, asking $795,000, boasted its own private patio as well.
