Insane Clock Tower turned penthouse in DUMBO

Clock Tower Home-01-1 Kindesign

The exquisite triplex penthouse atop Brooklyn’s iconic Clock Tower building, erected in 1915 on the DUMBO (District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) waterfront, is one of the largest poured concrete buildings in Brooklyn, New York. What used to be a machine room for the clocks is now housing a 6,500 square foot penthouse apartment boasting a breathtaking quadrangular view of New York city. The custom kitchen, designed by Canova for a renovation by developer David Walentas, founder of Two Trees Management Company, embodies all the style and charm of Italian ingenuity. With Italian sense of aesthetics, the kitchen has been conceived both to perfectly suit a dream domus and to create a winning combination with the atmosphere of the four clocks. A provocative infusion where the kitchen stems out as a full-relief sculpture in the middle of this dream apartment. This penthouse was originally listed for $25 million in 2009, but was price-chopped down to $18 million by the Corcoran real estate team. If it sells, it would be one of the most expensive homes ever purchased in Brooklyn.
