$6.5M Oosten Penthouse Poised to Set a Williamsburg Record

New, 5 comments

A 5,091-square-foot penthouse at Oosten in Williamsburg reportedly entered contract for its full asking price, $6.49 million, which means that it will be the most expensive home every sold in the neighborhood. Property Development Marketin broker Robert Lynn shared the news with the Post, and noted that the apartment is one that comes with an all-expenses paid trip to Amsterdam to get face time with Piet Boon, the building's designer. The condo is a six-bedroom duplex with two private terraces (one equipped with a hot tub), a keyed elevator that connects to a private garage, and a master bedroom closet that is literally bigger than some apartments.

The current record holder of Williamsburg's priciest home is 330 Wythe Avenue, where unit 8J sold in an off-market deal for $5 million last year. Before that, a $3.6 million apartment at Northside Piers held the top spot.

There are a couple listings in line to be the second most expensive: this $5.5 million penthouse in Karl Fischer's 20 Bayard Street and this other penthouse at Oosten, asking $6.42 million.
