Front & York, the highly-anticipated mixed-use development in Brooklyn’s sought-after DUMBO neighborhood, recently celebrated its official topping out, with each of its two residential towers reaching 21 stories. Designed inside and out by renowned architect Morris Adjmi, Front & York will introduce the first opportunity to live in a full-service, luxury urban oasis in DUMBO, while providing residents postcard views of the neighborhood’s famed Historic District, the East River and the entire Manhattan skyline from the Statue of Liberty up to the iconic skyscrapers of Midtown.
“As we reach this important milestone, we reflect on the attention to detail, commitment to craftsmanship and careful planning that have come together to bring this project to life,” said Jason Schreiber, Principal, Investments of CIM Group, co-developer of Front & York. “We’re proud to acknowledge the work of our talented construction teams as we bring the first full-service residential experience with unobstructed views to DUMBO, an offering designed to complement the community’s existing residential landscape. We look forward to continuing this progress and welcoming our first buyers to Front & York next year.”
An unprecedented offering for the neighborhood, Front & York is bringing new condominium homes, rental residences, transformative new retail and publicly-accessible parking to a formerly vacant lot. Ranging from one- to four-bedrooms and spread across two towers serviced by their own lobbies, the condominium residences at Front & York combine beautiful materials with modern finishes, including 10-foot ceilings, white oak floors and Nest thermostats. Oversized divided-light windows—a hallmark of Adjmi’s contextual style—flood the homes in abundant natural light and frame sweeping panoramas of the waterfront, sparkling Manhattan skyline and the lush private park. The homes feature generous kitchens complete with custom Italian cabinetry, Caldia stone countertops and backsplashes, Waterworks fittings and Gaggenau appliances, as well as luxurious baths with custom designed Italian vanities and medicine cabinets, Waterworks cast iron tubs, custom Waterworks and Morris Adjmi-designed fittings, and radiant-heated floors.
Front & York’s well-rounded offering is complete with one of the most comprehensive amenities packages in all of New York City, spanning 150,000 square feet. The development is centered on one of the city’s largest private parks, a gorgeous, 25,000-square-foot space designed by Michael Van Valkenburg Associates, who envisioned the neighborhood’s beloved Brooklyn Bridge Park. The lush landscaping will provide private green space, a quiet respite and a verdant view for residents. Residents of Front & York will also enjoy a rooftop pool deck; a 77,000-square-foot Life Time, the premier athletic and wellness center; and a full suite of lifestyle and leisure spaces, including a co-working lounge, outdoor screening area, outdoor fireplace lounge, private wine room, private chef’s kitchen with private dining room, toddler and teens rooms and much more. Each residence of Front & York will receive one complimentary Life Time membership.
Ideally positioned, Front & York’s location in the live-work mecca of DUMBO places residents in close proximity to the waterfront, desirable transportation options as well as a variety of major companies’ headquarters. The development is moments from the East River ferry terminal—which offers a five-minute, open-air commute to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan—bike paths and walking paths across the iconic Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges, and just one subway stop away from Manhattan via the York Street F train subway stop. Front & York offers robust private parking and bike storage, and has been generously set back from the property line, making space for 30-foot-wide, tree-lined sidewalks that maximize pedestrian comfort and create additional space around the development.
