On the edge of Brooklyn Heights, a building designed in 1913 for a bank with a grand entrance resembles the Italian Renaissance style and is modeled after the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona designed by York and Sawyer. The bank was designed to entice patrons, and make them feel their money was safe. The magnificently built structure is now being remodeled into luxurious style condos. The bank will remain, but the upper floors will be transformed into lofts with a townhouse feel. The space will resemble modern loft style living.
Under Barry Rice Architects, the designs will be respectfully enhanced for living, featuring beauty and practicality. Original details remain preserved throughout the building. The boutique-condos feature amenities that would be expected to be found in luxury high-rise developments. Featuring open floor plans, professional grade kitchens, white oak flooring, walk in closets, lounges, and top floors with skylights. Relax on the common rooftop terrace with family and friends, while bbqing and soaking up the sun. More amenities include child’s play area, teen room, laundry room, pet spa, state of the art fitness center, bike/stroller storage room, and a first sound-attenuated private music room in Brooklyn. The 12 apartments will bring in natural light that will fill in the space with a beautiful glow, and with the cozy feel and spectacular views you will never leave. The building includes a doorman, and a live in-super. Residents will enter through a canopied entrance in new lobby on Pierrepont Street. Make sure to take in the stunning facade detail on the outside of the building.
