The Olympia at full sail
REAL ESTATE • FOUND Development
Who among us has not cast an eye on Olympia Dumbo’s elevated outdoor tennis court, flanking the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge (above) and thought: I’d play a set there? Perhaps with the new owners of 24B, a 2617SF three-bedroom, which closed for $5.7M last month. Or with actor Michael B. Jordan, if he ever closes on PHB (the $17.5M unit for which he’s reportedly in contract). At the very least, we’ll bring a racquet to this Sunday’s open house at PHB, 4928SF, listed for $19.5M.
The elevated prices — some of Brooklyn’s highest — haven’t deterred buyers; the developer says Olympia has cleared 50% sold.
We like the building’s sail-shaped waterfront profile — designed by Hill West Architects — more than some, as well as the interiors, by Brooklyn’s Workstead. (Workstead is the ascendant design group behind the upscale craft aesthetic of the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, as well as the Rivertown Lodge, up in Hudson.)
Rising 33 stories and featuring two pools, a private garage, and expansive terraces, Olympia is not your grandfather's Dumbo. But that Dumbo sailed away long ago.
