Sales are underway at 856 Washington Avenue, a timeless, modern, luxury 14-story condominium with 26 oversized high-end units in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights neighborhood that offers buyers unique expansive views of Prospect Park and the Manhattan skyline that are unmatched anywhere in the neighborhood.
“856 Washington Avenue is the first condominium of this caliber to be developed in Prospect Heights,” said Douglas Elliman’s Gregory Williamson, whose team is handling the exclusive marketing and sales for the building that stands strategically at the crest of a hill. “In addition to the beautiful residences and state-of-the-art amenities, 856 boasts views of Prospect Park and Manhattan like never seen before.”
The developer is The Daten Group, along with its partner Valyrian Capital and the architect is Kutnicki Bernstein, with interior designer Stephanie Goto Design.
“Elliman is proud to represent this game changer of a building in the Prospect Heights & Park Slope condo market that offers buyers uninterrupted views of Prospect Park above the eighth floor,” added Williamson.
856 is filled with modern conveniences and amenities designed to enhance the experience of urban life including a third floor courtyard and expansive roof deck with views of Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park. Both offer a communal gathering space for residents to meet and enjoy Brooklyn lifestyle and the neighborhood.
“The building’s design is inspired by the cultural context of Prospect Park and showcases architectural textures and materials of concrete, marble, steel, and natural wood that recall Brooklyn’s character through a modern lens,” said designer Stephanie Goto.
There is also a curated book selection in the building’s “Library Salon” and in the lobby, a re-imagined installation of vintage metal safe deposit boxes captures a piece of the building’s historic past by paying homage to the former site of the local Greenpoint Savings Bank, where the condominium now stands. Additional building amenities include state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga room, bicycle parking, and residents’ lounge with adjacent children’s play area.
Oversized units feature generous open floor plans, hardwood floors, high ceilings, oversized windows and Bosch washer and dryers. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers lined with polished Mosaic Bianco Bella Marble and Cesar floating vanities with Carrara marble countertops. Custom Cesar kitchens feature white oak and walnut cabinetry, Pietra del Cardosa stone countertops and Blanco satin polished marble sinks outfitted with Dombracht faucets.
The full floor penthouse residences feature top of the line Gaggenau appliances with a Liebherr refrigerated wine cabinet and Electrolux washers and dryers with steam settings. The Penthouses also feature soaking tubs and rain showers with steam and digital controls.
One of Brooklyn’s newest and hippest condominiums is located in earshot of The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Barclay Center, The Brooklyn Children’s Museum and Brooklyn’s Botanic Gardens.
The building is expected to be ready for occupancy by the end of the year. Two and three bedroom units are priced from $1.495 to $2.575 million.
