This Gowanus property is a turn-key opportunity with the flourishes of one of the most magnificent designer warehouses in all of New York City including a luxurious penthouse suite offering clear southerly views, stunning sunsets and moonrises experienced on its adjoining expansive terrace. The only way to understand this rarest of experiential spaces is to see it in person.
Upon arrival at this property, you are greeted by a grand warehouse with a purple brick facade - enter into one of the two pink doors revealing the biggest surprise in Brooklyn. You will be transported into a modern, chic and unparalleled designer interior including 90’ feet of uninterrupted space and soaring ceilings rising up to 17 feet. Reminiscent of a Tribeca loft, while simultaneously retaining the historic and industrial characteristics of a Gowanus warehouse, this is a one-of-a-kind space.
A warehouse renovated from the ground up in 2014, the building is divided into several parts that are fully integrated by a spectacular full glass atrium spanning up to 30 feet in height framing the beautiful skies above. This private and unique outdoor atrium experience is situated at the center of the building, offering a well of light that shines warm, natural light throughout the entire building’s interior. This secret oasis offers infinite possibilities for al fresco entertaining as well as creating a magical garden in the middle of Brooklyn. The atrium also has three glass doors providing great internal access between all the parts of the building without having to leave your building’s exterior.
Be transfixed by an unexpected experiential space—the results of the complete rebuild and refinishing of a warehouse originally built in 1931 with pristine interiors. The property is divided into three parts—one side a uniquely transformable and massive entertaining space, gallery and lifestyle space including 12’ height glass Nana Wall to allow for division of space, a Valcucine Italian Pantry and Island, designer pendant lighting and a 6’ glass linear gas fireplace surrounded by a designer tile wall. Concrete radiant heated floors warm the entire ground level, massive custom built-ins & general storage space are discreetly integrated throughout the building, powder room with Timorous Beasties wallcovering & Alessi Egg toilet, automated audio/visual system and motorized solar shades throughout, impressive structural upgrades as well as indoor parking are some additional amenities.

Fun Fact, in this moment, there is a custom Blaauw kiln imported from the Netherlands—the largest individual artist computerized model ever made at the time of purchase. The studio is 90 by 25 feet of highly adaptable space for any function or need.
