The redevelopment of Cobble Hill’s Long Island College Hospital passed a tipping point in late March, when the campus was rebranded as River Park. The first big rollout under that rebranding happened this morning, when a number of condos in the historic Polhemus Building, along with two of the new Polhemus Townhouses, hit the market.
The listings represent the first step in the former hospital campus’s transformation into high-end residences, featuring niceties like subterranean parking and underground mews that connect townhouse owners to the over-the-top amenities of the Polhemus Building.
The 19th-century Polhemus Building will give way 17 condos that range in size from 1,591 square feet to 3,693 square feet and are priced from about $2.55 million to over $6 million. The building will be graced with a concierge-attended lobby with a restored coffered ceiling, as well as two floors of amenities that will include a paneled billiards library with a fireplace, a gym, and a “yoga atelier,” per the listings.
BKSK Architects was brought on to design the apartments, which will include “Parisian” foyers, 11-foot ceilings in the living areas, and kitchens that will feature custom millwork cabinetry with leather-wrapped nickel hardware, and honed Zebrino porcelain marble countertops.
Condos currently for sale in the landmarked building include a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom listed for $2.55 million, a three-bed, two-and-a-half bath going for $3.195 million, and a four-bed, four-and-a-half bath on the market for $4.55 million.
In addition to the Polhemus Building condos, two of the eight townhouses designed by Douglas Romines that will rise along Amity between Henry and Hicks streets have also come to market: a $5.995 million, 16-foot townhouse with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms at 92A Amity Street; and a 20-foot townhouse with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms at 98 Amity Street asking $8.4 million.
The townhouse at 98 Amity—the decidedly more luxurious of the two—will include eight-inch plank oak hardwood flooring with radiant heat; a great room with 20-foot ceilings and a two-story window wall overlooking the garden; an optional mezzanine-level built-in marble and oak bar; and a full-floor master suite with a “master bath experience” including a soaking tub, two double showers, and a 17-foot dressing room, all with Danube marble floors and vanity tops.
In addition to a sun porch off of the master, the townhouse will come with a backyard fit for entertaining, prewired to allow for “an outdoor cinema underneath the stars” and large enough to give way to an outdoor kitchen and fireplace as well as a variety of seating.
