With a history that dates all the way back to 1916, this historic building offers 12 units spread out over 5 stories. If you’re looking for a great place in Brooklyn to live, you won’t be disappointed by everything that The Brooklyn Trust Company Building has to offer.
While the building was completed in 1916, construction actually began three years earlier. Since then, the building has remained in its original condition. That’s why this building is truly the only place in Brooklyn where it’s possible to find all of the latest amenities offered in a building with an incredibly rich history.
The Brooklyn Trust Company Building was designed in the Italian High Renaissance style. If you’ve ever had a chance to see Verona’s Palazzo della Gran Guardia, you can instantly see all the influences this building drew from it.
The building’s exterior is defined by both rusticated and smooth-faced limestone. When Barry Rice Architects made the commitment to update this building for modern living, they paid very careful attention to ensuring that all of the historic details were honored.
If you’re looking for a home with space, this building definitely delivers. Each of the twelve units is at least 2,500 square feet in size. Thanks to the ample space provided by each unit, residents will be able to enjoy professional grade kitchens. All ceilings are at least 10″ high, and the living and dining rooms have dark stained white oak floors.
Bathrooms are defined by statuario marble walls and floors. There’s a custom vanity complete with a calacatta gold marble top, as well as a walk-in shower. And in the master bathroom, residents will be able to enjoy the comfort provided by radiant heat floors.
Although the building is a testament to history, it provides all of the amenities you could want for modern living. The Brooklyn Trust Company Building has both a live-in super and doorman. There’s also a pet spa, as well as bike & stroller storage plus a supplementary laundry room.
In terms of amenity spaces, the building has a gym, roof terrace, lounge, teen room, children’s playroom and even a music practice room.
While exact pricing details for the building’s units haven’t been released, prices are expected to start at $3.35M for a two-bedroom and go up to $4.35 million for a five-bedroom duplex.
Located in Brooklyn Heights, this building’s location provides an opportunity for people to live in a neighborhood where they’re actually able to engage with their community. Not only is The Brooklyn Trust Company Building surrounded by history, but it also provides convenient access to excellent schools and a variety of public spaces.
