Clock Tower Apartment Features 360-Degree Views of New York City

This penthouse in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood rests inside a clock tower, boasting stellar views through the four 14-ft glass clock faces on each wall

Apartment 16 on Main Street in DUMBO is not your typical condo. Sure it features the usual modern amenities expected of a luxury apartment, but it also has one extra special thing going for it: It is at the top of a clock tower.


The Clocktower building is known for its luxury, pricy apartments – Anne Hathaway recently sold hers for a hefty $4.25 million – but the penthouse at the top of 1 Main Street is the priciest of them all, with a starting asking price of $18 million.

The highlights of this luxury penthouse are the four 14-ft glass clock faces on each wall, that provide stellar 360-degree views of landmarks of New York City including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and Manhattan Bridge. The 6,810 sq ft apartment also features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a glass-walled elevator within it and ceilings that range from high at 16 ft to the insanely cavernous at 50ft.


The apartment has been on and off the market since 2009, when it was initially listed at $25 million. It was created by David Walentas, the billionaire developer known for creating the Dumbo neighborhood. While the price has been reduced significantly, it will still be the most expensive home in Brooklyn should it sell, according to Business Insider.


Currently, real estate agent Corcoran – who lowered the price – are hoping to offload the apartment after other agents failed to do so.
