The Esquire Building, 330 Wythe Avenue, 3J - Williamsburg, New York
This is the first time that loft home 3J at the renowned Esquire Building has been offered for sale. The owner and architect of 3J was one of the original purchasers and has been the design/builder for numerous notable loft homes at The Esquire Building. This approximately 2,600 SF duplex loft home, like the practice that designed it, is rooted in a deep understanding and respect for sustainability and the synthesis of a wide and varied palette of material and design choices. This home brings together a textured balance of the building's industrial past with a modern and lifestyle-driven approach to living that is organic, functional and warm. The layout provides a balance of moments that are at once intimate, such as the dining area off the generously proportioned cooks' kitchen, and dramatic the double-height living room with 18 foot ceilings. West and North-facing exposures afford panoramic views of the Williamsburg Bridge and Waterfront, East River and Manhattan skyline. The entire home is appointed with an array of notable name brand materials, appliances, fixtures and fittings, all expertly rendered into this one-of-a-kind home. Williamsburg's most prominent pre-war conversion, once home to the Esquire Shoe Polish Company, was converted in 2000 and delivered 75 unique white-box spaces to an already thriving yet nascent Williamsburg market. The transformation of the individual homes at The Esquire is as varied and dramatic as the transformation of the entire neighborhood over the last decade and a half. No two lofts spaces at The Esquire are alike and the re-imagination of many of the lofts have been well chronicled in numerous publications and media outlets. The building features geo-thermal climate system, a rooftop terrace, laundry room, composting center, free cable and high speed internet and video intercom entry. One of the few true loft buildings on Williamsburg's coveted waterfront, your new home is in the epicenter of one of NYC's most dynamic and amenity rich neighborhoods. A new ferry service connects waterfront with Manhattan for incredibly easy access and the nearby Domino Sugar development will bring unprecedented new amenities and new public parkland to the immediate area. Some of the neighborhood's best dining and nightlife options are right at your fingertips. Shown by appointment.
