After a nine-month hiatus from the market, David Walentas’ Clocktower building triplex in Dumbo is coming back online with a slashed asking price and a new set of brokers. According to the Post, Walentas has tapped the Kleier klan, of “Selling New York” fame, to market the 7,000-square-foot pad for $23.5 million.

Sabrina Kleier Morgenstern, one-third of the Gumley Haft Kleier trio that also includes her mother, Michele Kleier, and sister, Samantha Kleier Forbes, confirmed to the The Real Deal that her family is putting the listing on the market later today and plans to hold a launch party next month to spread the word. The 1 Main Street condominium, which originally hit the market for $25 million in 2009, is still potentially Brooklyn’s priciest ever by a landslide, even after the price chop.

Among the headline-grabbing features: views of the New York Harbor and the Brooklyn Bridge through four, 14-foot glass-faced clocks, 16-foot ceilings and a private, glass-enclosed elevator leading to a “crow’s nest” deck.

As The Real Deal reported last year, the apartment was pulled from the market by Walentas’ Two Trees Management because the developer was in the midst of a possible rent-to-own deal with a prospective buyer.

Two Trees’ Asher Abehsera, a vice president at the company, said at the time that the taker was “not sure whether [he wanted] to buy it or rent it, or rent it and then buy it down the road.” [Post, 3rd item]
