Where Cobble Hill meets Brooklyn Heights, River Park emerges as Brooklyn’s newest luxury neighborhood, encompassing an area of nearly 1-million-square-feet.
River Park will eventually be a collection of seven new residential properties: Polhemus Residences, Polhemus Townhouses, and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 River Park. Polhemus Residences and Polhemus Townhouses are completed and expecting residents soon. 5 River Park is celebrating its recent construction topping out. 1 and 2 River Park are the next to rise, and 3 and 4 River Park will be in the last phase of the development.
I had the opportunity to visit 5 River Park, a beautifully-designed building by architect Douglas Romines. This coveted condominium is being developed by Fortis Property Group and will be comprised of 25 larger-than-life residences. Each floor is different, and the building offers one- to four-bedroom living spaces along with three levels of amenity spaces. This will include dual-level garden promenades, a resort pool, an outdoor kitchen, a private playground, steam and sauna rooms, and more.
With its enticing location, the building is a photographer’s paradise; it is the perfect median between land and sea. From the top of the 16-story building, you have a spectacular view of Manhattan on one side and of Brooklyn on the other. On the ground, it’s conveniently located near a Trader Joe’s, several coffee shops, a few parks, and anything else that you could want. Not to mention, the building is less than ten minutes away from Pier 6, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the rest of the waterfront.
In an attempt to capture the feeling of a townhouse, the upper floors will be exclusively accessible by key. As soon as you exit the elevator, you are greeted by your own hallway leading to your lavish living space.
If you have any interest in making 5 River Park your new home, it is located at 347 Henry St and apartments are currently on the market from $1.15M to $4.4M.
