205 Water Street in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) Historic District in Brooklyn is a handsome, new construction project that combines several different aesthetics.

Part of its façade is a two-story penthouse with a cantilevered balcony by the steelwork of the Manhattan Bridge.  The remainder of the façade is exposed concrete with large multi-pane windows.  It also has a cobblestone entrance. 

The developer was Toll Brothers and the architect was Greenberg Farrow, which also designed One Ten Third for Toll in Manhattan. 

The 8-story building, which was completed in 2011, has 65 residential condominium apartments.

Bottom Line
