Mid-century modern design meets former 1920s Express Railway Building

A true loft building circa 1920 meets mid-century modern revival design. This is your once in a generation chance to own this Penthouse, rich in history and design.

Featured in Dwell magazine, 13 foot ceilings and original restored brick beautifully frame this entertainer’s dream home. All approx. 1,300 square feet have been reimagined, from it’s roots as home to the Railway Express Agency of the roaring 20s, to deliver what can only be described today as a calm, but vibrantly inspirational space.

No expense has been spared and every corner has been maximized. Immediately left of the entry is a custom built bookshelf-to-walk-in-closet (you have to see it!), large enough to hang a bike and your Harry Potter collection, and to the right is one of two full bathrooms, this one containing the in-unit washer/dryer.

The spacious dining area, perfect for entertaining guests, is adjacent to the kitchen crafted with mid-century modern tones and not one, but two, skylights. Step right up to your living room designed with having company in mind to stay a while longer and to also have those cozy, private moments with a book in front of your fireplace. And guests can stay in your expertly designed sleeping loft, that is, if you can find the hidden door (it’s next to the kitchen).

The upper level oozes intimacy, combining architectural elements of clean lines with contrasting colors, skylights, and private indoor/outdoor living. It truly must be experienced to feel it’s warm embrace. It invites you to sit, relax, and enjoy your cup of coffee in the mornings and to laugh with friends over a drink in the evenings. This space has it all.

The Skytrack Condominium, named for its one-of-a-kind rooftop track, is one of only a handful of prewar true loft buildings converted to condominium in the area. The location is impeccable — on the border of Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and Brooklyn Heights, you have immediate access to dining on famed Court Street, highly-acclaimed Smith Street, and still within arm’s reach of all the trains (2/3/4/5/R/F/G).
