    A Brooklyn landmark, reimagined for the 21st Century


  2. · The Building ·

    slide image slide image


    The Brooklyn Trust Company Building has remained virtually untouched since its cornerstone was laid at the corner of Pierrepont and Clinton in 1913. Designed in the Italian High Renaissance style, it is modeled after the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona. The rusticated limestone base and the piano nobile's double-height colonnade of smooth-faced limestone are well-proportioned and finely crafted. Under the careful eye of Barry Rice Architects, these timeless details have been respectfully enhanced for 21st-century living. Generous open-plan layouts are complemented by an owner’s lounge and children’s play areas. An expansive common rooftop terrace offers space for outdoor relaxing and barbecuing. Twelve apartments awash in natural light combine the scale and comfort of a Manhattan loft with the intimacy of a townhouse.

    Nowhere else in Brooklyn will you find such up-to-the-minute amenities wrapped in such an historic building. In the Heights, where context and community are inextricably intertwined, the Brooklyn Trust Company Building is a landmark in every sense.

    Bank Lobby – York & Sawyer, 1913
    Edward York and Phillip Sawyer created some of the most iconic buildings to grace the skyline of New York: The New York Historical Society (1908); The Federal Reserve Bank of New York (1924); The Central Savings Bank of New York (1928). Apprenticed under master architects McKim, Mead and White—who designed the New York Public Library and the Washington Square Arch—the pair’s classical lines helped institutions at the dawn of the 20th century display their strength, power, and longevity.
    When a bank needed a headquarters or a college needed a law building, York & Sawyer were the architects to hire. Their role in cementing New York as the center of wealth and power during the Gilded Age is undisputed. To document the impact the firm’s new building would have on the affluent residential neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, Irving Underhill photographed the construction of the Brooklyn Trust Company Building, shooting images each month as the limestone landmark went up on the corner of Montague and Pierrepont. His images add to the legacy of the building, which has been the anchor of Brooklyn Heights’ “Bank Row” for a century.

    Putting architecture in context

    As grand an entrance as one would expect from a historic bank building, with a few unexpected touches—like a mud room tucked behind the former vault’s gilded gate.

    The best of the past was left intact; the rest, updated for practicality and beauty. Living rooms are flooded with light, their open plans adapted for modern city dwellers.
    Select residences have duplex secondary bedrooms with oversized skylights and sleeping lofts —ideal for siblings sharing a room.
    Honeycomb subway tiles and bell jar hung lanterns give the powder rooms an appropriately vintage feel.
    Barry Rice excels at adaptation. Adhering to no rigid dogma, his style is versatile; it emerges from the client’s desires, the setting, and the existing assets of the building itself. Whether he’s adding a modern condo above a brick rowhouse on the Bowery or building a glass tower in low-rise Soho, he keeps his focus on the cultural and physical context. If anything, simplicity is his aesthetic, and recreating landmark buildings is his sweet spot.
    As an Associate Partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Rice worked on numerous institutional and residential projects, honing his skills at translating classical architecture into modern designs. With the renovation of the Brooklyn Trust Company Building in Brooklyn Heights, he masterfully melds the benefits of early-20th-century townhouse-style living with the grand proportions and natural light of a modern loft. From the outside, a stunning landmark building is presented; behind the leaded-glass windows and limestone facade, everything desired is hidden in plain view.

    Townhouse-style Living, Full Amenities

    Living Room at The Brooklyn Trust
    Those who move to Brooklyn Heights are making a deliberate choice. They want to live in an authentic neighborhood, where residents engage with their community. They want to be surrounded by history, walking past Gilded Age mansions and along an historic promenade on their way home. They want access to great schools and public spaces and awe-inspiring cityscapes. They want to be a part of a place that has endured for over a century.
    Bedroom at The Brooklyn Trust
    With the opening of the Brooklyn Trust Company Building, individuals who make that choice now have the best of the neighborhood’s history coupled with the benefits of modern loft-style living. Unlike a high-maintenance brownstone or a high-rise condo that doesn’t blend in, this landmark building offers 12 full-service apartments with every amenity a city-dweller desires. There is a music room and a gym; an owner’s lounge and a roof deck; children’s play rooms created with specific age ranges in mind; a mud room off the lobby where bicycles and strollers can be kept out of sight. There is tenant storage and even a dog spa. Each of the 2,500+ square-foot residences offers generous proportions, from the large professional grade kitchens and extra-wide entry foyers to the large wine refrigerators and outsized walk-in closets. Using the existing envelope of the landmark building, architect Barry Rice has updated tradition, creating the most amazing new residential project—and the most coveted historic-landmark condominium development—in Brooklyn Heights.
    The Owner's Lounge is a unique, fully-furnished amenity space featuring access to a music studio, children's playroom, teen room, gym, kitchen, and an outdoor roof terrace with a grill.
