Who would have thought that Superstorm Sandy would have so thoroughly accelerated efforts to reinvigorate and strengthen the city’s shoreline? An East River voyage aboard the newly-minted NYC Ferry makes postcard-clear the magnetic appeal of our waterfront currently being improved with acres of new parkland and dozens of flood-resilient buildings thanks to new codes.
The latest residential venture to wash onto our murky shores is Quay Tower – a 28-story condominium whose name embraces its waterfront locale. The high-rise project, addressed at 50 Bridge Park Drive, sits comfortably at the edge of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6. The tower is the last of four residential developments assigned to the park. The other three are the record-setting 1 John Street, Pierhouse, and One Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Earlier this week, the Quay Tower team, led by developers RAL Companies and Oliver’s Realty Group, kicked off sales on the tower’s 126 residences. Currently available homes include two-bedrooms priced from $1.955M, three-bedrooms from $2.8M, four-bedrooms from $4.2M and a five-bedroom listed for $7.92M.
California-based AD100 firm Marmol Radziner is honing the interiors whose layouts are optimized to highlight views of the harbor, skyline and landmarks beyond. In a press release, the team explains Quay Tower’s homes are to evoke a sense of “relaxed luxury,” with warm and inviting interiors. Many apartments will have windowed kitchens and master baths and will be infused with honest, natural materials to foster an elegant, relaxed aesthetic.

Ron Radziner, FAIA, and Design Principal at Marmol Radziner says, “Quay Tower reflects the spirit and vibrancy of the park and the way active, cultured and professional New Yorkers and their families live today. We want these homes to be relaxed and timeless – to be lived in and loved for generations to come.”
The release notes that the building will be the first condo in Brooklyn with private high-speed elevator access. These select west-facing units will also have mudrooms accessible through a secondary entrance. The space incorporates a Whirlpool washer and vented dryer, Italian cabinetry to organize outerwear, sports equipment, and rain boots, and a cork wall ideal for displaying kids’ art and photos.

Custom kitchens will have fully-integrated Gaggenau appliance package and white oak cabinetry that is complemented by White Princess Quartzite countertops, backsplashes, and hood surrounds. Oversized master bathrooms are said to convey Marmol Radziner’s signature flair for effortless luxury, with custom brushed oak vanities, Alabastrino Rustico Travertine-adorned walls and radiant heated floors, and custom lighting.
The project’s architect is ODA's Eran Chen who specified a gridded exterior of metal and oversized windows punctuated by outdoor loggias. Chen says, “The bold metallic-gridded exterior at Quay Tower has been designed to enhance the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. Almost all homes have double exposures and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that frame unrivaled views.”

A recent visit to the construction site reveals that the curtain wall is rapidly making its way up the topped-out structure. The tower is being built northwest of a fraternal rental building also designed by ODA.
Amenities will include a state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking Brooklyn Bridge Park's gardens, a children’s playroom, a music practice room, and a pet wash. Additionally, there will be two indoor/outdoor rooftop spaces with outstanding views in every direction. The building's double-height lobby will be lined with walnut paneling, a marble-clad fireplace, and furnishings curated by Marmol Radziner.

“Quay Tower has been meticulously planned to bring an unparalleled level of luxury to one of New York City’s favorite neighborhoods – Brooklyn Heights – at an incredibly compelling price point,” said David Wine, Managing Partner at Oliver’s Realty Group. “We are excited to officially introduce this one-of-a-kind offering that has, in my opinion, better views than any waterfront development in Manhattan and a lifestyle to match.”
