The developers behind Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 development have unveiled the teaser site, and released a new rendering for one of the two buildings that make up this project. The building in question is the 28-story tower that will bring 126 apartments to Brooklyn Heights, and will henceforth be know as Quay Tower, with Quay pronounced like “kway,” and not “key.”
The development at Pier 6 has been the subject of legal back and forth for quite some time now, but in July last year, a judge denied an emergency request to halt construction at the site, allowing the RAL Companies and Oliver’s Realty Group project to move forward.
At present, the developers are only offering up new information on the fully market-rate condo. The other, shorter tower will be a rental building with 140 apartments (100 of them affordable) spread out over 15 stories.
The Eran Chen-designed Quay Tower will feature two-to-five-bedroom apartments, and many of them will have permanently protected views of the East River, and the Manhattan skyline. Pricing on the two-bedrooms will begin at $1.9 million, and sales are expected to begin this spring with Douglas Elliman Development Marketing handling the sales and marketing on the condo.
Construction is underway at the site, and the first set of residents are expected to start moving in in the summer of 2019.
