All About Pierhouse: Inside Brooklyn Bridge Park


Brooklyn Bridge Park is set along the shores of the East River as the Brooklyn Bridge looms high above it. The park boasts some of the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline as the Wall Street area stands tall across the river. It spans 85 acres, along 1.3 miles, where you will find variations in topography including small hills designed to create a noise buffer between the park and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE). A total of six piers jut out into the water, each with different activities to keep local residents and visitors active with walking trails, sports courts, playgrounds, a boat marina, and acres of green space. The park brings residents with Brooklyn Heights real estate together and gives them a fantastic place to escape the energy of the city when needed.
 

Pierhouse is located directly within the park, which makes it your front yard. When you step outside, you will have access to everything the park has to offer without ever getting into a subway car or driving across the bridge. In fact, you can also travel all over the city, and even to the beach, via the NYC Ferry service. The DUMBO landing at Pier 1 is minutes from your front door. Every season of the year you’ll have varying activities and entertainment options to choose from and do not forget about the view. The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy offers fun and free year-round programming and events for you to enjoy, and volunteer opportunities too. If you’re into sailing, you can take a sailing class or become a member of ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina, or even dock your own boat. You can join a soccer league that plays on Pier 5 or visit the Environmental Education Center at the DUMBO end. As you travel along the gorgeous Brooklyn waterfront, stop by the many vendors, restaurants, and shops at each end. Not only will you be in an ideal location to fully enjoy the amenities of Brooklyn Bridge Park, but once you step into Pierhouse you will know these Brooklyn Heights condos are the place for you to have the most enjoyable and luxurious lifestyle in Brooklyn.

Arriving and leaving home is simple with valet parking

Having a car in Brooklyn can be complicated. If you don’t have access to a parking garage or private lot, you are stuck trying to find parking on the street. You have likely wasted hours circling the block and reading the signs to see if you could park on that side of the street for the night in order to avoid waking up early to move the car. All of that stress goes away when you choose to live at Pierhouse and rent a monthly spot from the on-site garage, which is directly accessible via both the North and South building elevators. When you arrive home for the evening, the valet will safely park your car in the on-site parking garage. There is no need to hold up dinner reservations while you are trying to locate a parking spot.

24-hour lobby attendants with concierge service


Did your flight get delayed and now you’re arriving home at 2 AM with a car full of luggage that needs to be carried into your home? This scenario happens all too often with the flight schedules these days, and having access to two welcoming lobbies, with 24-hour lobby attendants will be a relief after the trip. The lobby attendants help with more than handling your packages or giving you a hand with your bags; they also provide concierge services when you need to make a quick reservation or arrange for a car to pick you up for your next trip. There are also several porters, a live-in building super, a building handyman, and an on-site management associate.

Mr. Fido and Ms. Kitty will love their new home


Our fur babies quickly become a member of the family. Living in a place that welcomes them is crucial to your family. The nearby dog parks in Brooklyn Bridge Park will give your pup plenty of room to explore and meet new friends. Pierhouse offers a pet wash center with two pet washing stations. The nearby WAG Club is also available to give your fur-friends that perfectly groomed look, and they offer doggy daycare sessions too.

Spaces for everyone


Enjoy some time outside your condo in the newly designed children's playroom, or the multi-purpose residents’ lounge, complete with large screen TV and kitchenette. The perfect spaces to meet up with neighbors where new friendships will quickly be formed. You can reserve some time in the on-site conference room for your next meeting too.

Two fitness centers will keep you on schedule


It’s so easy to make excuses to skip the gym when actually getting there is complicated and adds additional stress to your life. While you may enjoy using this excuse to skip that spin class or to avoid your trainer, there are two fitness centers available to you without the associated hassle of commuting to the gym. Your future body will thank you for the extra effort you put into it now and you will be grateful for the bonus time in your schedule.

Get into a zen mood in the meditation studio


Anyone who has lived in a major city knows that it can sometimes get to you. The constant rush to get somewhere, the impact of noise on your senses, and that feeling of constant movement. Coming home to a dedicated space that allows you to escape all of that into a deep meditation gives you the necessary time to decompress and regroup. You love living in the city, and this time away from it will bring that feeling back to you. If you’d prefer a more guided experience or a yoga class, check out the on-site, locally-owned, yoga studio, One Yoga House. You can even schedule a wash and blowdry afterwards at the salon next door, Salon 718.

You will have a space of your own, outdoors!


Living in Brooklyn Bridge Park is fantastic. You will have access to all that it has to offer but sometimes you simply want to have a glass of wine in your own private space and enjoy the spectacular view in front of you. Many of the condos for sale in Brooklyn Heights within the Pierhouse have their own dedicated outdoor space to relax, entertain, and take advantage of those spectacular views.

You will no longer have to design a room in order to store your bike

Living in a home with limited space and storage is common in urban areas. This becomes a challenge when your bike is a primary mode of transportation or recreation. Where do you put it? The on-site bike storage at Pierhouse will take away the hassle of moving the bike out of the way to get into a closet.
