Prospect Heights, one of Brooklyn’s most lovable neighborhoods, is welcoming a rare new condo tower in earshot from the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Pushed 14 floors skyward by Valyrian Capital and the Daten Group, 856 Washington Avenue will bring 26 for-sale residences with open sunlit layouts, sumptuous materials, and a full-fledged amenity package that includes a roof deck with views of Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park. Now the team has unloaded the first listings: 4 two- and three-bedroom homes priced from $1.75 million.

The recently topped-out concrete structure is designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects. The building’s exterior will don a subdued grid of large windows and its two-tier massing is amplified with some material changes and angular pizzazz. The tower stands at the crest of a hill presenting residences wide-angle view in every direction. Several units will have a private terrace or balcony, and all will have high ceilings, hardwood floors, and oversized windows.
Unit #3B
Unit #3B is a 1,499-SF two-bed, two-bath unit priced at $1.925M ($1,284 per ft²). The home has exposures over low-scaled Washington Avenue and the master bedroom has two walk-in closets and an en-suite bath.
Unit #10B
Unit #10B is a 1,217-SF 2-bed, 2.5-bath spread priced at $1.725M ($1,437 per ft²). This high-floor home (our favorite) has exposures to the east and north with 85-SF balcony just off the spacious living/dining room. Both bedrooms have en-suite baths and the master has a walk-in closet. There is also a powder room near the entrance.
Unit #4A
Unit #4A is a 1,607-SF 2-bed, 2.5-bath home priced at $2.3M ($1,431 per ft²). The unique layout faces west lending to views of Prospect Park.

Kitchen and dining area
Kitchens will be fitted with walnut cabinetry, fully integrated Thermador appliances, Pietra del Cardosa stone countertops and Blanco satin polished sinks outfitted with Dornbracht faucets. Baths will boast a similarly minimal aesthetic and masters will have double-sinks, large showers but no soaking tubs.

As we previously mentioned, the ground-up development replaces the Neoclassical-styled Greenpoint Savings Bank building that was distinguished by two towering Corinthian columns. As a nod to the site’s history, in the lobby will be a custom art installation of vintage deposit boxes. In addition to the common roof deck perched 150 feet above street level, other common features are to include a third-floor courtyard, a library salon with herringbone oak floors and a curated selection of books, and a residents' lounge ideal for get-togethers with friends and family. There will also be a fitness center and yoga room, on-site bicycle parking, and ancillary storage for purchase.
Construction at 856 Washington should wrap up by year-end. The total unit sellout, which includes the storage spaces, is projected to be $62.5 million according to the latest offering plan. Comparable new developments in the neighborhood include On Prospect Park, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, and 280 Saint Mark's Avenue.
