The Clock Tower Building located in Dumbo, Brooklyn is the architectural landmark of this resurgent residential area. The penthouse used to house mechanical equipment for the clocks and a water tower and was converted into a 12,000 sf triplex apartment commanding 360 degree views of Lower Manhattan, the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges and all of downtown Brooklyn.
The first level consists of an open plan living area including a custom kitchen. On each of the four walls is one 14-foot tall clock face that frame the spectacular views. The second level is the area for the bed rooms, two en-suite and on master suite with a tub positioned to look out onto Manhattan. Further up on the third floor is another open living area, this one smaller and more intimate. Finally on the fourth level is an indoor/outdoor terrace with more breath taking views.
A glass elevator is used to access levels one to three, with an open staircase that surrounds it, making it a focal point of the space.
