Located adjacent to the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park and offering unrivalled views of the Manhattan skyline, Pierhouse’s remaining one-to-five bedroom homes are duplexes spread across two separate waterfront buildings, many with double-height living rooms and private outdoor space. A lush environment, conceived by landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, includes private rooftops and landscaped terraces designed to complement the surrounding park. The condominium is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
Bathrooms feature Waterworks® fixtures, Lithoverde® Bianco Carrara by Salvatori, and walnut and brushed nickel vanities. The selection of granite for the building’s exterior was inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge, which is visible just to the north of Pierhouse. Many residences feature spectacular views of the New York skyline, East River, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The interiors and exteriors were sustainably designed by Marvel Architects.
Residents have access to countless amenities, including two 24-hour attended lobbies, multiple fitness centres, a meditation studio, a resident event space, children’s playroom, pet wash, refrigerated storage and on-site valet parking. Cyclists will be welcomed with bicycle storage and access to Brooklyn Bridge Park in their front yard.
