How do you like them condos?

Actor Matt Damon, who was previously spotted scoping out a $40 million mansion at 3 Pierrepont Place, is in contract to buy a Brooklyn penthouse at the Standish on Columbia Heights, according to the Wall Street Journal. The pad was last asking $16.645 million, and if the deal closes at that price, it would set the record for priciest residential sale in Brooklyn, besting the 2015 $15.5 million sale of a townhouse in Cobble Hill on Pacific Street. The Real Deal first reported the unit’s sale in late August.

The building used to house the Standish Arms Hotel, and developers DDG and Westbrook Partners recently converted it into condominiums. Brooklyn architect Frank S. Lowe designed the building.

The condo contains six bedrooms and is 6,218 square feet, with the asking price working out to $2,677 per square foot. The Standish has 33 units overall with a total projected sellout of $120 million. [WSJ] – Eddie Small
