There are many abandoned buildings in this world, but with the right amount of money and creativity from the human mind, they’re turned into awesome, stunning masterpieces.
A good example is the famous Clock Tower located in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, on the top of One Main Street.
‘Time is money!’ – this expression is given new meaning by the luxury triplex penthouse. In 2009, estate agents couldn’t find a buyer for this luxurious accommodation because it had a price tag of $25 million, which they considered to be was a bit too high. So, the condo’s price was slashed to $18 million.
Who is the mastermind behind all this? The creator of the DUMBO neighborhood, David Walentas, gives the most luxurious life style you can ever imagine, converting the Clock Tower into a must see architectural piece of art.
The luxury penthouse of the Clock Tower building offers a lot of space, 6.813 square feet more precisely. You can enjoy 360 degrees panoramic views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan through the 4 massive 14-foot-high clocks.
The ballroom type ceiling has a height between 16 and 50 feet creating the impression of an organic space in which light, warmth and freedom coexist in harmony. Modern elements such as steel frames and art deco ornaments combine with classical wooden floors, providing the perfect match for chic, yet comfortable living space.
And what would be a luxury house without its own elevator? Is this not the coolest thing ever? The glass elevator stands right in the center of this incredible penthouse.
The kitchen with white lacquer cabinets follows the same open floor type of living arrangement, providing the occupants a central isle for all types of kitchen fun. Light flows through the kitchen from all angles, widening the space while at the same time offering awesome sights over the Big Apple. And you’ll like this part the most. How romantic it will be to cook a dinner with your special one?
The way to the bathroom is paved with refined hone where you’ll find 2 sinks and massive mirrors. Why is this bathroom different than any other?
