Brooklyn’s priciest condo will soon be back on the market. The 11,000-square-foot triplex apartment at One Brooklyn Bridge Park, aka 360 Furman Street, was originally listed in May but was taken off the market in February without selling. But now the couple who owns it decided to put the sprawling home up for sale again because it was suddenly feeling too big, as the Wall Street Journal first reported.
One recent evening, while the owner, Stuart Leaf, was in his condo, he got a call from his wife asking when he would be home. As it turned out, “we’d both been home for three hours,” he told the Journal, but the space was so massive neither realized it.
The penthouse — a combination of nine separate units — has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, a 3,500-bottle wine room, a gym with its own rock climbing wall, and a dedicated screening room. There is also a 75 foot-long terrace. The property will be listed with Karen Heyman of Sotheby’s.
Prices in the borough continue to increase at a rapid rate, and we’re sure to see more record closings soon — spring is always a good time of year to list. It’s not hard to believe that an apartment this large, combined out of nine units, should command a significant premium.
Still, we continue to see huge price resistance in Brooklyn to anything over $10,000,000. Dozens of those listings out in the last two years are either still on the market, off the market, or sold at a much lower price than initial ask. The record for the entire borough is still $12,500,000 — for 70 Willow, the extraordinary Greek Revival mansion in Brooklyn Heights. (Heyman sold that one too.)
We’d be surprised if this goes for ask. What do you think?
