Facade Work Progresses for Luxury Condo Tower in DUMBO
Looking like the sail of a ship in the harbor, the 26-story tower at 30 Front Street has slowly been gaining its sweeping facade. Located in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood, it will be known appropriately as Olympia DUMBO. Developed by, , the structure will contain luxury condo units.
Designed by , the topped out tower stands feet tall. At this time, general contractor, is installing facade materials on all the residential floors above the multi-story podium. Attention still needs to be given to the rear quarter of the building, and to capping off the sloping roofline.
As is common with many projects of this caliber, the podium, and lower floors are far from finished at this point, despite how far along the upper floors appear in comparison. From a construction management perspective, this order of approach may have to do with the location of the building's amenities and mechanical systems. Inherently, there are more complexities in constructing these areas of the building, so finishing easier floors first may help to keep the project on schedule.
The building will have unit configurations ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms and offer a list of amenities that is truly extensive. Olympia will boast indoor and outdoor pools, a steam room, treatment room, dry sauna, juice bar, a full-size tennis court, a landscaped park, cabanas, barbecue areas, and children’s ship-inspired playground. There will also be several residential lounges, and a club, complete with a game lounge, bar, bowling alley, fitness center, spin studio, boxing gym, and maritime-themed kid’s playroom.
Despite everything on offer, the tower's best attribute is going to be its sightlines. The property is positioned right beside the Brooklyn Bridge and tenants will have spectacular views of the Financial District, the bridge, and the mouth of New York Harbor. Olympia is expected to finish by the summer of 2022.
