Description



Surrounded by cultural landmarks, lush green space and exquisite architecture, 856 Washington paves the way forward matching the allure of modern convenience with celebrated remnants of a rich historical past. Bright, spacious interiors feature architectural textures such as marble, steel and natural wood. The eye is drawn upwards from the hardwood floors to the high ceilings.

Natural sunlight spills in through oversized windows, offering an enhanced perspective of the world outside. Open floor plans are anchored by kitchens as functional as they are beautiful, with striking walnut cabinetry, fully integrated Thermador appliances, Pietra del Cardosa stone countertops and Blanco satin polished sinks outfitted with Dornbracht faucets. Welcoming and restorative baths offer clean lines, beautiful finishes and a keen eye for detail.

856 Washington is filled with modern conveniences and amenities designed to enhance the experience of urban life. In the lobby, a re-imagined installation of vintage deposit boxes captures a piece of the building's historic past through artistic expression. A third-floor courtyard and landscaped roof deck soaring 150 feet over Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park provides a communal gathering space for neighbors to share conversation and take in the impressive views.

A well-appointed library salon with herringbone oak floors contains a curated selection of books. After some quiet contemplation, head downstairs where the residents' lounge offers space to host a dinner party or a private gathering with friends. A state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga room offer space for perfecting poses or peaceful introspection.

On-site bicycle parking lends itself to the Brooklyn lifestyle, and ancillary storage is also available for an additional fee.

Prospect Heights is a neighborhood where natural and cultural attractions flourish; a true community reflecting the colorful energy of brownstone Brooklyn. Classic turn-of-the-century architecture lines the north side of the parkway, with a wealth of iconic institutions for arts and culture to the south, including the Brooklyn Public Library, Mount Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum.

Explore and indulge in the vast array of inventive restaurants, upscale boutiques and exciting nightlife scattered throughout this lovely and compelling pocket of Brooklyn. Experience the ethereal wonderment of neighboring Prospect Park and its 585 acres of sprawling green space. Long stretches of landscaped meadows provide a peaceful urban oasis ideal for quality time spent with friends, or for peaceful solitude from the bustling city.

Additionally, the Barclay's Center plays host to the New York Nets and features an endless roster of talented performances. When it's time to pack up and get away, Atlantic Terminal is Brooklyn's largest train station with three Long Island Railroad lines, nine subways, and over 750,000 square feet of shopping and dining to explore.
