Located in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pierhouse is one of the borough’s most dramatically sited new apartment houses. A monumental building that incorporates numerous ecologically friendly devices such as a rainwater irrigation system and organic composting units in every apartment, the massive copper-colored structure at 90 Furman Street is part of a complex that includes a luxury hotel and 106 condo apartments.
The striking metal, glass and limestone façade, designed by Marvel Architects for Toll Brothers, suggests a Cubist take on a New Mexico mesa, while the hotel and public interiors echo the organic/industrial aesthetic of Paolo Soleri by way of nearby Dumbo’s own warehouse chic.
Apartment N605 is a light-drenched duplex boasting head-on views of New York City Harbor and the Manhattan skyline. Its dramatic, salon-like living room features a double-height ceiling and a wall of windows.
The dining area overlooks the living room below, creating a balcony-like ambience and getting maximum effect out of the latter space’s 18-foot-high ceiling. The open-plan kitchen is outfitted with custom walnut cabinets, Gaggenau appliances and honed Italian marble counters and island.
An entry foyer has a coat closet and adjacent powder room for guests. The lower level of the home includes a library/den and the master bedroom, replete with walk-in closets and a dual-sink master bath.
Reclaimed heartwood pine floors and Waterworks bathroom fixtures appear throughout.
The building offers amenities such as 24-hour attended lobbies, valet parking, fitness centers, a meditation studio, refrigerated storage, a play room, bike storage and an electric charging station. In addition the residents can use the facilities of the adjoining 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, which features a world-class spa, rooftop pool and bar, and a screening room.
Located in Brooklyn Heights, known for its quaint charm, the home is also convenient to historic Dumbo, with city institutions such as the River Café, St. Ann’s Warehouse and Jane’s Carousel all within strolling distance. In addition to Jane’s Carousel, Brooklyn Bridge Park offers a variety of activities, including beach volleyball, outdoor movies, art installations and a children’s water park.
The building is a short commute to Manhattan via the East River Ferry, Brooklyn Bridge, the F train at York, the 2/3 at Clark and the A/C at High Street.
Douglas Elliman’s Vanessa Van der Linde Brown and Leora Blumberg Rubenstein have the listing, which is asking $3 million.
