Walentas’ ClockTower penthouse draws celebrity attention

January 21, 2010 08:51AM

Jay-Z and Ralph Lauren each recently checked out the crown jewel of Brooklyn apartments — a $25 million triplex penthouse at developer David Walentas’ 1 Main Street in Dumbo, the ClockTower Building. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom condo — featured in “Bamboozled” by Spike Lee — is located on the building’s 16th through 19th floors and the listing price is more than twice the highest amount ever paid for a Brooklyn home. The record purchase price thus far was an $11 million home in Gravesend. Through four giant glass-faced clocks, the apartment’s residents can enjoy bird’s-eye views of the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. On the roof, there is a 400-square-foot “crow’s nest” deck. Raphael De Niro of Prudential Douglas Elliman has the listing. [Post]
