The crown jewel atop Dumbo developer David Walentas's One Main Street, the triplex penthouse behind the building's clock faces, stunned the post-Lehman world when it hit the market in 2009 for $25 million, far and away the most expensive listing in Brooklyn. Since then the 7,000-square-foot condo in the Clocktower Building has been pitched to megarich Russians and celebrities and even came close to a deal, but it was not meant to be. The listing vanished in the summer of 2010, but it's coming back, the Post's Jennifer Gould Keil reports, with some big changes.
The team now handling the penthouse is made up of familiar names: Selling New York's own Michele Kleier, Sabrina Kleier-Morgenstern and Samantha Kleier-Forbes. Don't be surprised if that glass-walled private elevator and rooftop crow's nest pop up on basic cable sometime in the future. As for the price, it is now $23.5 million, which would still shatter all Brooklyn records. The new listing isn't up yet on the Gumley Haft Kleier website. Will the 2011 market be kinder to this epic party pad?
