Once known as “Brooklyn Village,” Brooklyn Heights is a posh residential area known for its tree-lined streets, low-rise architecture and numerous pre-Civil War brownstone row houses.
Brooklyn Heights is located in the northwestern portion of the borough, between DUMBO and Cobble Hill, right along the East River. It offers residents unobstructed and unrivaled views of the downtown Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and the neighborhood’s very own iconic landmark — the Brooklyn Bridge.
The North Brooklyn housing market has been white-hot for several years now, with prices and demand nearly rivaling Manhattan’s highly competitive — and pricey — market. New construction in the area is booming, but the influx of new luxury condos is slowly eroding the neighborhood’s affordability.
Here’s a brief round-up of what’s available with a budget under $5 million in the Brooklyn Heights new condo market:
1. Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park
Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park was developed by Toll Brothers City Living and Starwood Capital. It is located at 90 Furman Street and houses a total of 106 units, with sizes ranging from 2,916 square feet to 4,885 square feet.
Situated on prime waterfront property, most units feature double-height ceilings in living rooms and homebuyers can choose from one-to-five-bedroom floor plans — many with outdoor patio space.
In the kitchen, buyers will find top-notch Gaggenau appliances and honed Calacatta Tucci marble countertops, as well as solid walnut cabinets for a sleek, modern look. The master bath features a deep standalone tub and walk-in glass shower for a true spa-like experience.
