The DUMBO Townhouses are located at the corner of Pearl and Water Streets in the Borough of Brooklyn.

The total project includes approximately 18,000 gross sf.Save this picture!© Cameron BlaylockAcross from a newly designated public park, the building envelope is made up of a series of high performance Ductal concrete panels that provide shading and privacy for the residents. The typical townhouse units are approximately 18’ wide with the exception of the corner unit, which is 19’2” wide. A shared drive with parking spaces for each typical townhouse is carefully placed behind the garden level at grade. Each unit has a raised private entrance at the ground floor clad with Ipe wood and bronze coated aluminum panels softening the entry experience in contrast to the precast concrete panels above.

Up one flight of stairs, one enters onto the main parlor floor with 20’ ceiling heights and a mezzanine space located in the middle. The lower level includes the kitchen, living and dining space and has stone floors throughout. The kitchen area separates the dining area from the formal living room and extends out into the rear garden to allow for outdoor cooking. Full height sliding doors allow the dining area to fully open out onto the garden bringing the outside in. The formal living space has a fireplace and a full story of glass looks out onto Water Street. Above the kitchen area is the mezzanine that looks over the parlor floor and can serve as a library, office or less formal living room.Save this picture!© Cameron BlaylockThe master bedroom suite is located on the 3rd floor complete with a master bath and walk in closet.
