If you reside in New York, you’re more than familiar with the “DUMBO” neighborhood, but for our friends who aren’t, “DUMBO” came about in the late ‘70s from the residents who lived in lofts above the warehouse district in Brooklyn. The acronym stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.” In the late 90s and early 2000s, a developer saw a vision and acquired 32 acres of land to develop the area into what it is today.
Today, we bring a #ProjectProfile close to our hearts from Brooklyn, New York. 168th Plymouth is one of the last loft conversions in “DUMBO,” Brooklyn, New York.
This project combines two landmark buildings into 46 residential condominiums ranging from one to four-bedroom homes. 168th Plymouth is a balanced mix of traditional brick, stone masonry walls, modern floor-to-ceiling glass, and precast concrete panels. Each home is uniquely different. Lofts, townhomes, and penthouses range with various exposed brick walls, concrete beams, columns, and tall factory windows. Residential amenities include a fitness center, private courtyard, bicycle storage, package storage units, a shared roof terrace with cabanas, and outdoor cooking areas.
A simply beautiful project. This project exemplifies the integration of New York’s history into the new development.
