The NY Post reports on the Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital’s unveiling of the “new look” of the Pierhouse condos planned for Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1.
NY Post: The Pierhouse apartments are stacked vertically and many feature private outdoor terraces filled with trees, grass and other planting “We wanted to bring the feel of being in a park up into the building,” David Von Spreckelsen, of Toll Brothers, told The Post.
The lower units face the new Squibb Park Bridge linking the park to Brooklyn Heights above. The Brooklyn Bridge is slightly past the hotel to the north.
The new development is essential to completing the entire 85-acre park project as it will generate $3.3 million in revenues towards the expected $16.1 million annual maintenance budget, officials say. It will also include restaurant and retail space, a banquet hall, fitness center and 300 parking spaces.
This development will join One Brooklyn Bridge Park and the proposed residential project on John Street. DUMBONYC reported on the plans for John Street yesterday.
