Neighborhood activists tried as they might, but despite protests over the height of the Toll Brothers’ Pierhouse hotel-condo development, the building has now topped out at 10 stories.

Gawker called it the “worst building” in New York earlier this month, joining a long-standing effort including a group called Save the View Now that has worked to cap the height of the project at 100 feet and preserve the famous view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the Brooklyn Heights promenade. The building at 41 Clark Street now stands at 130 feet and almost completely blocks the view, Curbed reported.

Toll Brothers is investing $39 million in the project, which will have 108 condo units and a 200-room attached hotel. The developer has said it expects to make $250 million in revenue.

In March, the developer revealed renderings of the condos, which are priced from $1.05 million for a 999-square-foot one-bedroom to $3.35 million for a three-bedroom. [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
