Located in Clinton Hill and just blocks from the C subway line is a boutique condo building with big building amenities known as Waverly Brooklyn. Inspired by Bauhaus Modernism, the property has a contemporary exterior with clean, modern lines composed of architectural concrete and hand-laid Norman brick which produce great window openings. This building is on the cusp of Fort Greene and Prospect Heights close to entertainment, shopping, and Brooklyn cultural institutions.
The apartments have great layouts with spacious rooms and entryways. Open kitchen, living and dining rooms with high ceilings (just under 11 feet) produce expansive common areas. With large windows, there is an extraordinary amount of natural light that penetrates these residences. The kitchens have great designs with integrated cabinetry of warm tones of oak wood and complimenting white lacquer. There are Bosch, Bertazzoni, Grohe, and Liebherr appliances and quartz countertops. The deep steel sinks are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, and the single slab backsplash shows that developers Orange Management and GKV Architects designed to a high standard. The bathrooms are of equally spectacular. Kohler & Grohe fixtures with LaCava sinks are all standard: large medicine cabinets with lots of storage solutions. Radiant heated floors in the bathrooms are what you would expect in a development such as this. And best of all, all units come with a Bosch washer/dryer as well.
OUTDOOR LIVING IN NYC
Several of the second-floor units afford large outdoor patios. There are five penthouse units with outdoor spaces—with barbecue grills. One design detail that isn’t visually noticeable but shows the quality of this building is the technology inside the windows on the Fulton Street side. The windows have been installed with Genie Mats technology: An acoustic underlay which creates special sound buffering from external noise. The level used is a “higher than required sound continuation rate.” Details such as these show Orange Management and GKV Architects put thought and care into Waverly Brooklyn.
The amenities are ideal for such a boutique building. For one, there is a parking garage right next door with fully-automated on-site parking, one of—if not—the rarest amenity in the NYC luxury market. There are two roof decks, one located on the second floor with abundant seating and an outdoor barbecue area. This is attached to the second-floor resident lounge with library, media center, entertainment area, and a very nice kitchenette. The rooftop deck is vast with great views of both Manhattan and Brooklyn. It even has an outdoor shower and sun deck. Of course, there is a gym as well.
The Waverly is a great addition to Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. An architecturally pleasing site with great interiors and a host of amenities bordering two other great neighborhoods Fort Greene and Prospect Heights.
