Brooklyn’s most expensive residential sale, situated on the top floor of the Standish Arms hotel-turned condos in Brooklyn Heights, was just purchased for $16.645 million by Matt Damon. The penthouse offers unrivaled views of Manhattan and is set back just enough that the proposed Promenade repairs shouldn’t create too much of a disturbance.
The six-bedroom at 171 Columbia Heights may not hold the record for long, though. The 7,433 square foot penthouse at Quay Towers, also in Brooklyn Heights, is under contract for $20 million.
