Over 65 Percent of the Boutique Dumbo Building’s Units are in Contract Eight Months after Launch
Megalith Capital Management and Urban Realty Partners today announced that the 200 Water Street Condominium Offering Plan has been declared effective. Over 65 percent of the units in the six-story, boutique residential building in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood are under contract. Closings are expected to begin in late summer 2016.
200 Water Street features 15 gallery-style residences boasting two-, three- and four- bedrooms with expansive windows and up to 14-foot-high ceilings. Halstead Property Development Marketing is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for 200 Water Street.
“200 Water Street is ideally located, features expansive modern residences and offers an unrivaled living experience due to its unique architecture,” stated Phil Watkins, principal, Megalith. “We are pleased that our offering plan has been declared effective less than one year after launch and the owners will soon be able to move into their new homes.”
The remaining available units include three-bedroom lofts for $2.85 million and the penthouses with expansive terraces and views of the city skyline, bridge and river start at $4.4 million.
“There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the design and finishes of 200 Water Street,” said Charles Homet, Licensed Real Estate Broker, Sales Manager at 200 Water Street. “Prospective buyers are astounded by the 14-foot-high ceilings, abundant light, and elegant brick, concrete and steel elements.”
Converted from a former 1950s Brillo steel wool factory, 200 Water presented an opportunity for Gil Even-Tsur’s Architecture Workshop and Aufgang Architects to breathe new life into a historic industrial building. Their solution makes significant changes to the building’s interior structure and use while respecting its landmark status and appearance. The building’s history is referenced by the use of brick, concrete and steel, with meticulous interior detailing that updates the original structure. The exterior’s transformation re-proportions the building’s structure and incorporates a two-story set-back modern glass addition, creating 200 Water’s contemporary profile.
Megalith Capital Management and Urban Realty Partners also announced an agreement with Stellar International Art Foundation for a fine art exhibit to be showcased in the lobby. The piece that will be displayed is Blue for No Reason, a 2005 painting by artist Damien Hirst featuring butterflies and household gloss on canvas.
