This striking luxury building showcases panoramic, picture-perfect views of the Manhattan Skyline, New York Harbor, Downtown Brooklyn, and beyond from virtually every home. Welcome to Quay Tower which features 126 two- to five-bedroom homes—and includes Brooklyn’s first condominiums with private elevators and a full complement of amenities. Designed by ODA’s Founding Principal, Eran Chen with interiors by AD100 California-based firm Marmol Radziner, Quay Tower has indeed set a new standard for luxury living in Brooklyn.
“Quay Tower has been meticulously planned to bring an unparalleled level of luxury to one of New York City’s favorite neighborhoods—Brooklyn Heights—at an incredibly compelling price point,” said David Wine, Managing Partner at Oliver’s Realty Group. “We are excited to introduce this one-of-a-kind offering that has, in my opinion, better views than any waterfront development in Manhattan and a lifestyle to match.”
OPTIMIZING VIEWS & PRIVACY
Aptly named Quay Tower (pronounced “kway,” a term for a landing place constructed on the edge of a body of water), the 28-story building has been designed with architecture that pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial past and celebrates the park. Gracious floor plans have been carefully planned to optimize views and privacy, with most homes featuring windowed kitchens and windowed master bathrooms. Marmol Radziner—famous for renovating iconic mid-century properties and for designing homes for celebrities such as Demi Moore and Tom Ford—brings its renowned California modernist aesthetic to the interiors, harmonizing nature with a structure to create warm and inviting residences that complement Brooklyn Bridge Park.
“The bold metallic-gridded exterior at Quay Tower has been designed to enhance the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. Almost all homes have double exposures and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that frame unrivaled views,” said Chen. Ron Radziner, Design Principal at Marmol Radziner added, “Quay Tower reflects the spirit and vibrancy of the park and the way active, cultured and professional New Yorkers and their families live today. We want these homes to be relaxed and timeless—to be lived in and loved for generations to come.”
Quay Tower is the first Brooklyn condominium to offer private high-speed elevator access. Available for west-facing residences, these elevators are adorned in Armani Gray marble floors and open onto a private entry foyer with custom Marmol Radziner-designed cabinetry. Another special feature—and rarity for most NYC homes—is a mud room which includes Whirlpool washers, vented dryers, and enough cabinetry to organize sports equipment.
RESIDENCES & AMENITIES
The interiors at Quay Tower feature honest, natural materials and elegant, relaxed design. Custom kitchens with incredible views are the heart of each Quay Tower home, featuring a fully integrated Gaggenau appliance package and white oak cabinetry that is complemented by White Princess Quartzite countertops, backsplashes, and hood surrounds. Oversized master bathrooms, the majority of which are windowed, convey Marmol Radziner’s signature flair for effortless luxury, with custom brushed oak vanities, Alabastrino Rustico Travertine-adorned walls and radiant heated floors, and custom lighting.
The exclusive resident amenities at Quay Tower complement the lifestyle afforded by the park, beginning with the building’s welcoming double-height, light-filled lobby, with warm walnut paneling, a marble-clad fireplace, and furnishings curated by Marmol Radziner. Residential amenities also include a state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the park’s lush gardens, a children’s playroom, a music practice room, and a pet wash. Additionally, the building’s roof includes two spectacular indoor/outdoor amenity spaces with aerial views in all directions: The Sunset Lounge on the north side, which boasts a 60-foot long terrace and can accommodate private events; and The Sky Cabana on the south side, which also enjoys a gracious terrace with two barbecues and has been designed for daytime entertaining. The building also has an exclusive partnership with Gleason’s—a Brooklyn landmark and the world’s most famous boxing gym—to create a private boxing gym for residents. World Champion boxer Yuri Foreman will lead private classes at the building for residents.
Located in historic Brooklyn Heights, Quay Tower is the latest addition to one of New York City’s most sought-out places to live. Diverse lifestyle, wellness, culinary and cultural attractions are steps away from Quay Tower. Residents will enjoy access to all of the benefits of living on the edge of the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park, home to volleyball courts, children’s playgrounds, a seasonal water park, dog run, and ample lawn space for relaxing and recreation. Quay Tower is also conveniently located near various public transportation options including the NYC Ferry Pier 6 and 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, R subway lines offering a quick commute to Midtown and Downtown Manhattan.
Pricing for current availability starts at $1,995,000 for a two-bedroom. The building is nearing completion and will open to residents this summer, with closings expected to begin in July. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is the exclusive sales and marketing firm for Quay Tower.
