Quay Tower once again ruled Brooklyn’s luxury market last week.

A penthouse at the Brooklyn Heights condo, asking $6.5 million, was the priciest home in the borough to find a buyer between March 11 and March 17th, according to Compass’ weekly report. 

Unit PH3C spans 2,600 square feet and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also features a large gallery, chef-inspired kitchen, UV-insulated floor-to-ceiling windows and triple exposures. 

Amenities at the 30-story tower at 50 Bridge Park Drive, built in 2019, include a rooftop lounge with cabanas, fitness center, music room and 24-hour concierge.

Jim Hayes, Brad Mohr and Jamie Hannon of Serhant had the listing. 

Since sales launched in 2018, RAL Companies’ 125-unit building has been home to a number of pricey deals, including a penthouse that sold for $20.3 million in 2020. The sale was the most expensive in Brooklyn that year.

Another penthouse at Quay Tower, asking just under $10 million, snagged a buyer right before the new year. 

The second most expensive home to land a signed contract was 334 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens, with an asking price just under $6 million. The 3,700-square-foot townhouse has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. 

The 20-foot-wide home also features a custom curved staircase, oversized windows, deck, landscaped garden and roof terrace. 

Leslie J. Garfield’s Matthew Lesser had the listing. 

Brooklyn’s luxury market picked up last week with 19 contracts inked for homes asking $2 million or more, up from 16 in the previous period. Of the total deals, 11 were for condos and eight were for townhouses. 

The average asking price was $3.9 million with an average price per square foot of $1,875. The homes spent an average of 100 days on the market and had an average discount of 3 percent from the original listing price.
