Two separately-owned units on the highest floors of Northside Piers have hit the market as a package deal for $5.2 million. If the asking price is met, it would be the most expensive sale ever for a home in Williamsburg.

The pair of apartments — a four-bedroom duplex penthouse on the 30th and 31st floors of 416 Kent Avenue and an adjacent one-bedroom unit — gives potential buyers 2,962 square feet to play with, Curbed reported. The penthouse is also listed separately for $3.95 million, the article said.

Ralph Modica and Michael Breen at Douglas Elliman have both listings, according to StreetEasy.

A sale of either the penthouse or the combo at the asking price would be the priciest home in the neighborhood. Not surprisingly, the current record-holder is a penthouse in the same building, which went for $3.6 million last year, the article said.

The doorman building is part of a dual-tower complex constructed as a joint venture between L+M Development, Toll Brothers City Living and  RD Management in 2011, as previously reported. Residents have access to a spa, gym, resident’s lounge and waterfront esplanade, according to the listing. [Curbed]Angela Hunt
