Dumbo’s latest condo building, 51 Jay Street, offers 75 chic lofts in a thoughtfully converted and landmarked historic factory. Here are seven things to know about the development:
1. Closings have commenced.
This is a great time to tour the model duplex residence in the former printing press factory.
2. Award-winning firm ODA New York is the architect and interior designer.
Acclaimed architecture firm ODA New York is widely recognized for its distinctive style. At 51 Jay, features and finishes echo the building’s origins as a factory. The building entry is framed by a painted steel and glass canopy. Steel tracks set into the polished concrete of the lobby celebrate the industrial trolley tracks that can still be spotted throughout Dumbo. The apartments are true lofts, with open floor plans and oversize factory-style windows.
3. Really big private outdoor spaces are available.
Extensive private outdoor space — rare in Dumbo — is a signature amenity of 51 Jay. The building offers duplexes with more than 300 square feet of private outdoor space. Also available are three penthouses with 700 to 3,000 square feet of private outdoor space.
4. 51 Jay Street features many coveted amenities.
51 Jay has a 24-hour concierge, lounge, children’s playroom, landscaped central courtyard, garden, gym, and common roof deck with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. There’s also storage, bike parking, a large-capacity laundry room, and pet washing and grooming station.
5. Dumbo is a destination for shopping, dining and recreation.
6. Close proximity to Brooklyn Bridge Park.
51 Jay Street is less than two blocks to the banks of the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The 85-acre waterfront park has gardens, walkways, playgrounds, views, the historic Empire Stores, a boat slip, basketball, volleyball, Jane’s Carousel, the Environmental Education Center and more.
7. Dumbo 2.0 is a tech friendly neighborhood.
The Brooklyn Tech Triangle stretches from Dumbo the Navy Yard. Long popular with innovative startups, Dumbo is home to Etsy, Frog Design and BioLite, to name just a few.
