It’s not often you see a rental pop up at 39 Pearl Street. So when Brownstoner posted the rental of the day last week, it caught our eyes. This 3,200 square foot, 4 bedroom rental is asking $6,500. This is a (increasingly) rare original loft space in Dumbo with an open floor plan. The listing (by owner) says:
The loft is an amazing one of a kind 3,200 sqft open floor plan apartment in the heart of Dumbo. This unique space is on the fourth floor in a pre-war elevator building. Features include: brick, five large windows facing north and 4 large windows facing east, great light, concrete floors, brand new kitchen appliances, huge cutting board, lots of storage space and 160 year old cherry wood columns, beams and buttress. Kitchen features an Italian multi-colored slate tiled kitchen counter, and an industrial style stainless steel prep counter island in the kitchen. Bathroom features include Italian multi-colored slate, antique pedestal sink and claw foot bathtub.
The asking seems high, but for the amount of space, you’re paying around half per square foot ($24) compared to other full service buildings in Dumbo such as 100 Jay ($50 per sqft avg), 30 Main ($49 per sqft avg), or 70 Washington ($47 per sqft avg). This raw-like space is not for everyone, but we love the space and columns/beams.
