This 70 Washington Street penthouse just came on the market yesterday (Sotheby’s listing #0135065). The Sotheby’s listing is titled The Ultimate DUMBO Penthouse, and it may come close to it (though some other 1 Main and 30 Main loft penthouses aren’t too shabby as well). The space is pretty breathtaking and the interior is completely redone in a clean, modern style that suits Dumbo. NYC public records indicate that this unit was partially combined with the next door unit (PHK) to total 2,130 square feet of interior space and 642 sqft of outdoor terrace space. This Penthouse unit (PHL) was originally purchased at $2,200,000 and PHK was $1,650,000. If you like the interior design, it was concieved by the talented owner, Athena Calderone, who designs spaces professionally.
So what does this large 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1 office room, and private terrace go for? $4,200,000 ($1,971/sqft, excl terrace, common charges: $1,038, taxes: $191), which would make this the third most expensive unit currently on the market in Dumbo Brooklyn. What do people think, will this sell, even though Dumbo has defied the real estate downturn? (Before anyone says it, we don’t know the owners and aren’t connected to Sotheby’s in any way. We just wish we were rich enough to buy this place.)
