Rising between Piers 5 and 6 on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront and with stunning views of Lower Manhattan, combines a metallic exterior shell with warm-wood finishes and luxe marble interiors by Ron Radziner and Leo Marmol of California architecture and design firm .
“The materials really harmonize with both the Brooklyn waterfront and Lower Manhattan skyline as a unit,” says Radziner of the design. “They are natural, age well, and have a hand-worked quality. Our design features materials that intersect cleanly with each other and knit together.”
The 28-story building, which features 126 two- to five-bedroom residences, pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial past while offering such elegant amenities as White Princess Quartzite countertops, Gaggenau kitchen appliances, and Alabastrino Rustico travertine marble walls and floors with radiant heating. Amenities also include a 60-foot outdoor terrace in the Sunset Lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a music practice room, and a pet wash. And let’s not forget proximity to the famous Brooklyn Bridge Park.
“Brooklyn has a rawness and texture that is different from anywhere else we have worked,” Radziner says. And where would he live in Quay Tower? “I would choose a unit with a view of Downtown Brooklyn, our first source of inspiration.” Check out gorgeous images of three model residences below.
In this three-bedroom model, warm neutrals in the furniture complement the incomparable views. Leather accent chairs are welcoming, and velvet navy ottomans add a pop of color.
Alabastrino Rustico travertine marble lines the walls and ceiling of this oversize master bathroom, which has a tub with floor-to-ceiling views.
A woven wallcovering on one wall of the living room helps soften the light streaming in through windows and dampen sound.
A cozy entry gallery opens up to an expansive living room with views of Brooklyn and a custom quartzite kitchen island.
The open kitchen features Gaggenau appliances and white-oak cabinetry with satin bronze accents to add warmth and depth.
A h sofa and a rug in hushed tones contrast with the brilliant sunset outside. The crimson ottomans recall the colors in the sky.
The Alabastrino Rustico marble floors have radiant heating, and there’s plenty of space on the expansive vanity in this ensuite master bathroom.
