Building Tour: 1 John Street

Construction is complete at 1 John Street, the residential building located at the northern fringes of Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO. The project is jointly developed by Alloy Development and Monadnock Development.

The 42-unit, 12 story condominium offers two, three and four bedroom apartments designed by Alloy Development, founded by architect Jared Della Valle. For the design of the exterior facade, large windows set into brick follow a gradient in size, such that the ratio of solid to glass increases towards the top of the building. Windows are motorized to allow for the entire unit to open when needed.

Penthouse A

One of the last remaining units is Penthouse A, a 4-bedroom and 4-bathroom triplex unit with a private terrace on the third level. Inside the 3,000-square-foot unit, large open spaces accommodate living, dining, and kitchen areas that have visual connection to each other and the exterior. From large windows, residents have views of Brooklyn Bridge Park, the East River, and the Brooklyn and Manhattan skyline.

Kitchens feature double rough sawn oak islands and Gaggenau appliances.

The master bath features an Italian freestanding soaking tub with a wood feature wall and Dornbracht/Fantini fixtures.

A courtyard off of the kitchen leads to a rooftop terrace with a gas grill and outdoor fireplace.

Beyond the waterfront views, the building's amenities include a gym, bike storage, and landscaped roof deck with cabanas. On the first floor, the building houses an annex of the Brooklyn Children's Museum, currently located in the Crown Heights neighborhood.
