The Standish, the Brooklyn Heights luxury condominium rumored to be A-list celebrity Matt Damon’s new home, announces its first sales update since coming to the market. In just over a year the highly anticipated development is now 85-percent sold, with $100 million in signed and closed deals. An incredible feat in today’s market, this milestone coincides with the commencement of closings and first resident move-ins.
Originally constructed in 1903 at the iconic Standish Arms Hotel, the building is being converted into luxury condominiums by DDG and Westbrook Partners. A perfect reflection of the Beaux Arts style popular at the time, The Standish’s façade was designed by F.S. Lowe in the early 20th century and consists of historic brick, bay windows, terracotta lintels, and a limestone base.
Rising above the historic Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, The Standish offers the unique combination of a pre-war façade, refreshingly modern interiors, and unprecedented views. The light-filled homes range in size from one- to five-bedrooms. Living areas feature Austrian white oak flooring and custom-designed solid wood entry and interior doors. Kitchens are fully outfitted with Bertazzoni-Italia and Bosch appliances and Italian Carrara marble slab countertops, while the master bath includes silver travertine slabs and mosaic accented walls and flooring, as well as a custom freestanding tub and Fantini rain shower.
Just three of these homes remain at The Standish, two of which are currently available, and one gracious townhouse to be revealed this spring. Pricing for available residences starts at $1.265 million.
Its residents will have access to a curated selection of amenities and services as well that includes a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga and stretching area, onsite concierge/doorman, fully outfitted children’s playroom and access to DDG’s award-winning concierge services. Pricing for available residences starts at $1.265 million.
Located at 171 Columbia Heights, The Standish is steps from the neighborhood’s beloved promenade as well as idyllic Montague Street, an array of restaurants and cafes, and the Brooklyn Historical Society. It also happens to be well situated for water lovers excited about ONE° 15 Brooklyn Marina, New York City’s newest marina.
