Old Clock Tower Transformed Into a Penthouse On Sale For $18 Million

Atop One Main Street in Brooklyn, New York, an iconic clock tower was transformed into a stunning triplex penthouse, located in the trendy DUMBO (down under the Manhattan bridge overpass) neighborhood. The apartment is part of an old industrial building that was originally built by cardboard manufacturers, and the tower transformation project was developed by David Walentas – the man behind the DUMBO project itself.

The jaw-dropping 6,813 square feet penthouse offers you a 360 degrees view of the city, overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan. Its signature feature, however, are the four massive clocks, installed in 14-foot-high round windows on each wall. The three-story apartment, with the ceiling going from 16 to 50 feet in height, also has a glass elevator running up its center.

The penthouse of the Clock Tower building entered the market in 2009 as the most expensive condo in Brooklyn, listed for $25 million – till then, the most expensive apartment on record had cost a mere $11 million. The realtors, however, have been unsuccessful in selling the Clock Tower penthouse, and it’s now down to $18 million. Well, what are you waiting for?

    Is it just me or would the mirrored time display be confusing and annoying? For that money I expect the correct time to be displayed in my apartment…

    Can’t help but wonder if the residents are contractually obligated to manually move all the the clock hands every minute for the benefit of the surrounding neighborhood, now that the mechanisms have been removed!

    If you look right, the mechanism hasn’t been removed, it has been changed for something more modern. The clock actually works apparently, judging from the different pictures where the hands of the clocks are at different positions. In a picture, you can see something on the back of the clocks, probably the new mechanism.

    Wonderful idea. Except that in the evenings you will be making voyeurs out of anyone looking at the clock for the time. No curtains. A real expensive fishbowl.
