Cobblestone streets. Nineteenth-century brick warehouses. Striking views of the sky and water.
Dumbo, an historic industrial neighborhood, has in recent years been transformed into one of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in Brooklyn, combining luxury living and the amenities that cater to it.
51 Jay Street is part of this transformation. A former factory that printed metal plates, it’s been reshaped by acclaimed architecture firm ODA.
From the large windows to the mix of wood, steel and glass, fits and finishes in the 74 loft condos echo the building’s origins as a working factory. A wall of casement windows allows light to pour in, illuminating the details throughout each unit.
Oak herringbone floors reflect light throughout the living areas. Kitchens feature custom cabinetry, marble slab counters and Gaggenau appliances. Each unit has a glass-enclosed wet room with walk-in shower and soaking tub.
Among the amenities are a 24-hour concierge, fitness and yoga rooms, a children’s playroom, and residents’ lounge. The rooftop terrace with outdoor kitchen and fireplace will be available for year-round entertaining. Add to that bicycle storage, additional resident storage, and a pet washing/grooming station.
51 Jay is adjacent to Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the neighborhood is expanding its dining, shopping, and leisure options. West Elm’s new flagship just opened in the historic Empire Stores — which will soon have an outpost of the Brooklyn Historic Society, public space and new restaurants. Old favorites in the area include Vinegar Hill House, among others.
Office development Dumbo Heights will be home to Untamed Sandwiches, Dig Inn, Bluestone Lane Coffee, Shadowbox, Row House and Yoga Vida.
For the active, DUMBO Boulders, an outdoor climbing facility in Brooklyn Bridge Park, is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. And ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina is the first new marina constructed in New York Harbor in a generation.
The area is close by the A, C and F subway lines. With the property 80 percent sold and occupancy expected late in 2016, now is a good time to inquire about availabilities. Sales and marketing by Halstead Property Development Marketing. Please call 718-878-1851 or visit 51JaySt.com.
