This top floor penthouse unit (PH2 A) at the Beacon Tower (85 Adams Street) was just listed yesterday by Corcoran. This is the largest apartment in the Dumbo building offered at 1,785 sq.ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 360 degree views with a 550 sq.ft. terrace. This 23rd floor condo must have dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline, the harbor, and the Statue of Liberty. Maintenance is $1,356/mo with $54/mo real estate tax.
These views come at a hefty price: $3,390,000 ($1,899/sq.ft.). Compare that with this Richard Meier On Prospect Park listing at $3,400,000 for 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2,125 sq.ft. condo, or this fully renovated 25 ft. wide, 4 floor Kane Street townhouse in Cobble Hill for $3,400,000. Of course all of these are very different, but for $3.4million, which would you choose: the views in Beacon Tower, a Cobble Hill townhouse, or a Richard Meier glass condo? Choices, choices.
