Cobble Hill’s River Park megaproject—a.k.a. the development formerly known as Long Island College Hospital—is moving right along, with construction on its multiple buildings now underway. The first two components of the project center around the Polhemus Building on Amity Street, and include condos (in the building itself) and townhouses, which are rising just down the block.
While most of those homes are relatively modest in scale, developer Fortis Property Group just listed a positively massive, new-build townhouse—at nearly 11,000 square feet, it would fall squarely into megamansion territory—that one wealthy buyer could scoop up and make their own. The cost: a whopping $12.5 million. (Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes have the listing.)
Currently, the record for the priciest home ever sold in Brooklyn is $15.5 million, also for a townhouse in Cobble Hill; while this new, schmancy house wouldn’t quite hit that level, it’d still be pretty damn impressive (assuming, of course, that it sold for the full asking price).
So what does $12.5 million get you, in this case? According to prospective floor plans provided to Curbed, the home would have 8,400 square feet of interior space, with an additional 2,400 of outdoor space, including a backyard with outdoor kitchen and a roof deck. The layout—as envisioned by the developer, at least—has many of the standard uber-fancy townhouse amneities we’ve been seeing lately: full-floor “master suite,” private theater, double-height living room with a wall of windows, you get the idea. This one would also come with a private two-car parking space.
