We received a notice from the reps at GDC Properties, the developers of the 220 Water Street rental building. 220 Water St is a 5 story, 134 unit loft conversion building that features a large 30 foot high central lobby with skylights, a coffee bar, lounge area and a “water feature”. The building has studio, one- and two-bedroom residences, many with home offices and large skylights, priced from $3,150 to $6,150 per month. There are 18 floorplans, all with 10 foot windows and 14 foot ceilings.
“We’re thrilled to begin welcoming residents to 220 Water Street,” said Adam Ginsburg, co-chairman of GDC Properties. “These gracious loft homes were created with the greatest care, skill, and materials to maintain the look and feel of classic DUMBO, while offering luxurious and modern living spaces, top quality amenities and a superior level of service for our residents.”
Natural light illuminates restored accents including exterior brick walls and concrete or wood plank ceilings with original timber beams that preserve the building’s industrial past. Modern design elements include multiple well-designed closets per unit, full-size washers and dryers, and moveable kitchen islands accented by high-end finishes and appliances.
Here tenants will have access to Abigail Michaels Concierge services, where they can request anything from apartment cleaning and nanny services to premium tickets for theater or sporting events. On-site amenities include a manicured roof deck with fireplace, lounge chairs and barbeque grills, a fitness and yoga facility with natural light adjacent to a children’s playroom, on-site reserved parking, as well as bicycle and generous private storage facilities.
220 Water Street, once the Hanan & Son shoe factory, is located between Front, Bridge and Water Streets in Dumbo (within the historic district). There’s also a ground level space for a cafe, restaurant, or retail for 4000 square feet. No word yet on who will occupy that lease. Welcome new residents! Please comment or send us an email letting us know what you think of the building.
