If you take the B,D, N or Q subway trains over the Brooklyn Bridge, you might have noticed the Clocktower Building, one of Brooklyn's proudest condo developments of all time. The original building was a cardboard box factory, but in 1998, with the new artist-lead development of the DUMBO neighborhood (it stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), it was converted into 126 dream lofts and condos. But what about that beautiful penthouse up top?
According to Corcoran Group Real Estate, the penthouse is on the market, listed as a triplex penthouse.
It was originally listed for $25 million but has dropped to $18 million. You'll be happy to know that the price does include its own glass-enclosed elevator.
Even if it sells at that price, it would be one of the most expensive homes ever purchased in Brooklyn.
The 14-foot glass clock encircles all four sides of the apartment, giving 360 views of Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn, including the Statue of Liberty and views of both bridges from the living room.
The ceilings range from 16 to 50 feet tall across the three bedroom, three bathroom home.
So, save your pennies. The Clocktower could be yours.
