A highly sought-after property in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and one of the few high-rise towers on the East River waterfront that enjoys a 25-year tax abatement. Located right by the water taxi and ferry stop.
Although it has numerous amenities, The Edge can sometimes feel like one big party. Thus, those looking for more privacy may have to give that up to live in this building.
The modern and edgy residences in this building are green, with natural materials and energy efficiency at the heart of their construction. This LEED-certified building features filtered air circulating through each unit, while walls and windows are insulated to keep the elements out. Interiors are designed with finishes that do not contain VOC’s, and individual temperature and lighting controls. Kitchens feature Miele and Bosch appliances, white quartz countertops, and white glass pantries.
The Edge is made of two towers, spanning two city blocks. The South Tower holds 360 units within its 15 stories. Amenities are plentiful and include an all-season pool and a splash pool with a waterfall, whirlpool, sauna, Turkish steam baths, two rooftop terraces, outdoor courtyard, and two fitness centers. A sports facility has an indoor basketball court, and other services include a yoga studio, virtual golf, gaming rooms, concierge and full-time doorman, children’s playroom, two lounges, and storage rooms. As if all of those bonuses weren’t enough, many homes also have views of the East River State Park.
The Williamsburg neighborhood is one of the most popular in Brooklyn. It offers hip independent shops and restaurants at a slower pace than Manhattan. It’s also close to McCarren Park, and a short walk will take you to the Bedford Avenue L train stop. Staying at home is a possibility, too, as The Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasbord are next door.
