A Peek Inside Pier House

Curbed gets a tour of the recently opened model in Pierhouse.

The model unit is a duplex-style apartment, like several others in the building, and is located on the fifth floor of the larger of the two residential buildings, 90 Furman Street. (The other is located at 130 Furman Street.) The interiors showcase the minimalist style now considered de rigueur for new developments in Brooklyn: There are 600-year-oldreclaimed heartwood pine floors throughout; walnut cabinets and marble countertops; and an elegant bathtub placed in the center of the bathroom. The development as a whole features 106 one- to-five bedroom units, along with a 192-room hotel that residents can access by signing up for a special amenities package, according to Von Spreckelsen.

The author took a ton of photos, and the article features details on decor, pricing, and amenities.

Regardless of your thoughts on the building…would you want to live here? And do the views and location make these apartments–78 of 106 of which have already been sold–a steal at $2.85 million? The Curbed commenters are less than impressed–what say you?

    Not sure who told you that, but they are wrong. The State mandated formula for determining your taxes requires the City to look at the incomes of multifamily rental buildings and to adjust from there. SO this building, which is not a rental should have no impact on your taxes at all. Also even the new rental buildings being constructed should not impact you since one of the factors the City takes into account is age.

    And even worse is that you availed yourself to them for the love of the dollar!!! I thought I saw some new and interesting art in the Two Trees corporate offices the other day… Lol!!!

    I mentioned on Curbed.com that no one noticed the BQE roaring by at all hours of the day and night, with fire engines, ambulances, police cars, trucks, etc. And, as an added bonus, eastward facing residents will get to look at the former Squibb building as it undergoes transformation into its next use.

    Lots of double and even triple glazed windows, expensive sound suppression technologies, and likely a few deaf people enjoying the views.
