Top 10 Condo Buildings in Brooklyn

Brooklyn continues to up its condo game with new pads that bring the latest styles and services to snatch the crown from prior condo kings of Kings County. As the city’s most-populous borough continues to blossom, CityRealty tallies the most cutting-edge offers on the scene.

#1 - Brooklyn Point, 138 Willoughby Street

Condo in Downtown Brooklyn

The 720-foot-tall Brooklyn Point tops the Brooklyn skyline as decisively as it crowns the list of the borough’s top condos. The 68-story tower culminates with a dramatic infinity pool that faces the Manhattan skyline. The extensive amenity list is not surprising for a building that comes from Extell Development, the group behind One57 and the Central Park Tower on Billionaires’ Row.

#2 - 11 Hoyt Street

Condo in Downtown Brooklyn

Starchitecture arrives in Brooklyn with a blockbuster at 11 Hoyt, where celebrated Chicago architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang wraps Brooklyn’s second-tallest building in a rippling metal facade. The building’s list of amenities is among the longest of any property in Downtown Brooklyn, a formidable feat in a neighborhood that has become synonymous with luxury.

#3 - One Clinton, 280 Cadman Plaza West

Condo in Brooklyn Heights

The 38-story wedge overlooks Cadman Plaza Park, Downtown Brooklyn’s largest green space. Tall windows open onto dramatic panoramas of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the harbor. Adjacency to Brooklyn Heights and the landmarked Skyscraper Historic District is as appealing as the building’s amenity suite.

#4 - Front & York, 85 Jay Street

Condo in DUMBO

DUMBO’s largest undeveloped lot becomes its latest destination in luxury living. The 21-story, twin-towered complex wraps around a spacious courtyard in the best tradition of “garden apartments” that rose all over Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx in the 1920s. The crisp, modern design by Morris Adjmi Architects sports multiple roof decks, including one with an outdoor pool, as part of its 150,000-square-foot amenity package.

#5 - Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park, 90 Furman Street

Condo in Brooklyn Heights

The Pierhouse is a veritable cliff of cascading limestone and verdant roof terraces, which open directly onto Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River, where the Brooklyn Bridge and the Downtown Manhattan skyline come into breathtaking view. Sumptuous interior finishes, such as bookmatched marble backsplashes in the kitchens, complete the luxe experience.

#6 - The Clocktower Building, 1 Main Street

Condo in DUMBO

The triplex penthouse, where four 10-foot clock faces were refashioned as dramatic windows, ranks among the top penthouses in all of New York. The rest of the renovated pre-war lofts also enjoy high ceilings, direct waterfront views, split-level units, and a spacious roof deck that opens onto panoramas of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.

#7 - 550 Vanderbilt Avenue

Condo in Prospect Heights

550 Vanderbilt at Pacific Park rises near Atlantic Avenue and the Barclays Center, where upscale Downtown Brooklyn meets the established and vibrant neighborhoods at the borough’s interior. The architects at COOKFOX utilized biophilic design, a concept that follows the innate human drive toward nature, to craft a lush building with ample greenery, a spacious garden, and multiple green roofs.

#8 - The Edge North Tower, 34 North 7th Street

Condo in Williamsburg

The aptly-named building marks the northern edge of the high-rise condo cluster at the Williamsburg waterfront. Alternately, the name signals a cutting-edge lifestyle in an amenity-laden property at the foot of a brand-new park, steps away from the bustling scene of Bedford Avenue.

#9 - 1 Hanson Place

Condo in Fort Greene

Before its 2006 conversion, the 37-story Williamsburg Savings Bank reigned as Brooklyn’s tallest building from 1927 until 2009. None of Brooklyn's many pre-war conversions can match the grandeur of the sky-scraping landmark styled in Byzantine-Romanesque motifs. The prominent tower overlooks Prospect Park from many upper-level apartments.

#10 - J Condominium, 100 Jay Street

Condo in DUMBO

The 33-story tower at 100 Jay Street brings modern condo living to the cobblestone streets of DUMBO. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Manhattan Bridge, the East River, the Manhattan skyline, and the canopy of nearby Fort Greene Park. A sizable amenity suite adds appeal to one of the best-sited condos in the borough.
