The sale of the penthouse apartment on top of The Standish — aka Superman’s building — in Brooklyn Heights has finally closed. And, as expected, it’s record-breaking.
The $16,745,121 price tag, reportedly paid by the actor Matt Damon and his family, for the triplex at 171 Columbia Heights on December 21 is more than the existing $15.5 million record holder.
The deed for the sale, to an anonymous LLC, was signed by Damon’s business manager, Gary Kress, the New York Post pointed out.
The Standish, a 12-story Beaux Arts apartment house, was designed by Frank S. Lowe and built in 1903. It was originally called the Standish Arms, which comic fans may recognize as the name of the building where Clark Kent lived in Room 5H. Brooklyn Heights resident Arthur Miller also used the name for the hotel where Willie Loman has an affair in “Death of a Salesman.”
Now its been turned into a 31-unit condo by the development and design firm DDG and Westbrook Partners, who restored the brick and limestone facade and put the first units up for sale in 2016.
