In case you were worried that a few weeks would go by without news regarding the possible sale of the triplex penthouse at Dumbo’s One Main Street, fear not, as the hype machine refuses to take the summer off: Sarah Ryley reports in The Daily that developer Two Trees is saying the 7,000-square-foot condo may be purchased as a humble pied-à-terre. The latest bit of gossip about the condo—which is asking $23.5 million, making it the most expensive listing in Brooklyn—comes by way of a Two Trees vice president denying that Esquire magazine is purchasing the condo as a party space since “the prospective buyer is actually a ‘human being’ looking for a pied-à-terre.” In the event the unit does sell, at least we can live vicariously via some of the photos Ryley shot of the condo, more of which live on the jump. The unit was briefly listed as a $50,000-a-month rental last month.
