Developer starts sales for Brooklyn's tallest tower.
Dubbed "J Condo," the 33-story building currently under construction will stand nearly 320 feet tall at 100 Jay St. in DUMBO. The development opened for sales last week and is already 25% sold.
Located only two blocks from the East River and Brooklyn Bridge Park, J Condo will offer panoramic views of the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridges, as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines.
J Condo will have 267 condominium homes, with ceilings of 9'4" to 10', floor-to-ceiling corner windows and an extensive number of balconies and setback terraces. Studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes will range from 530 to over 2,000 s/f each. Prices currently range from $430,000 to over $3 million.
Architectural firm Gruzen Samton designed the building's exterior, including its distinctive western facade featuring a triple "sail wall" of floor to ceiling glass.
"We recognize how visible J Condo will become and DUMBO is a neighborhood that has always attracted artists and culturally sophisticated neighbors," said David Kramer, principal of The Hudson Companies, the developer of the project. "We worked with Gruzen Samton to design a tower that speaks to Brooklyn's history--acting as a beacon to the harbor--and to residents from both Brooklyn and Manhattan."
J Condo's interiors were designed by Andres Escobar and Associates. They include master bathrooms with double vanities, soaking tubs and seamless glass stall showers and kitchens with acid satin etched glass, stainless steel, honed granite and quarter sawn oak cabinetry.
In addition to a full-time doorman and concierge, residents will enjoy an on-site garage, bicycle storage, fitness center with yoga/pilates room, screening room, children's playroom with outdoor play deck and a 32nd floor roof deck.
The Sales Center is located at 147 Front St.
