Luxury Landmark Living at Brooklyn’s Premier Pre-War Condominium

One Hanson Place is a loft conversion whose four-sided gilded clock tower rises 37 floors above the nexus of Fort Greene, Prospect Heights, Park Slope, Boerum Hill and Downtown Brooklyn. The iconic, landmark former Williamsburgh Bank Building was converted in 2007 to 179 condominiums ranging in size from studios to full-floor penthouses. All units feature top of the line finishes throughout (Viking and SubZero kitchen appliances, lava stone counters, lacquer cabinetry, chestnut strip flooring, custom baths with limestone and hand-laid mosaic tile, big closets, and solid core doors and moldings) and a minimum of 10.5 foot beamed ceilings, while some floors feature ceiling heights from 11-16 feet. Units on the 9th, 21st and penthouse floors include private terraces. The Tower Residences, located above the 23rd floor, are accessible via a second bank of elevators. In all, there are five passenger elevators and a freight elevator.

Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, live-in Resident Manager, 13 full-time staff, a large, windowed children’s playroom, two bike and stroller storage rooms, a full-service windowed gym with an adjacent terrace, a 21st floor Residents’ Sky Lounge with a furnished terrace, two additional furnished, common terraces on the 24th and 26th floors, each with panoramic views of every iconic New York landmark from Grand Army Plaza to the Verrazano Bridge to the Statue of Liberty to the bridges to the Lower and Midtown Manhattan Skylines.

Known for generations as the “Beacon of Brooklyn” due to its red-lit clock, visible throughout most of Brooklyn, parts of Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan, One Hanson Place was built in 1927 by the architectural firm of Halsey, McCormack and Helmer. The building’s stunning six-story adjacent bank lobby, leased by Skylight One Hanson as an event space, is one of the most recognized interiors in New York City. Inspired by Byzantine-Romanesque interiors, the banking hall is landmarked separately and is used often as an event space for private parties, weddings, product launches, flea markets, and frequent film and TV shoots. Doctors’ offices are located on the Ashland Place side of the building where they have their own entrance.

One Hanson anchors the South End of the expanding BAM Cultural District, already one of the world’s most visionary centers for the arts for over 150 years, will soon surpass Lincoln Center as the largest performing arts centers in the country. The location is superb: the building features direct access to the Atlantic/Barclays Terminal (New York City’s second largest transportation hub) with nine local and express subways (2,3,4,5.N.R,B,D,Q) and the LIRR’s Atlantic Station, for easy transport to JFK Airport and Long Island. In addition, the C and G trains are three blocks away. The new Barclays Center, Fort Greene Park, supermarkets, specialty food and retail of all types — from artisanal food shops and designer boutiques to large box stores — and dozens of restaurants, cafes, pubs and designer boutiques are all within blocks.

The entire landscape of this very popular “micro-neighborhood,” already renown in Europe as one of the hippest and most desirable neighborhoods in New York, is quickly being transformed into the ranks of the City’s, if not the country’s, most dynamic and desirable neighborhoods as well. With the arrival within five years of over 4000 new apartments in the area surrounding One Hanson will come additional higher-end retail, acres of green space, world-class architecture, new schools and a host of other new amenities necessary to service the large influx of new neighbors.

There will never be another One Hanson Place — it evens boasts its own zip code — and it will remain Brooklyn’s premier, white-glove pre-war condominium for generations to come. A J-51 tax abatement is in effect until 2024.
