Quay Tower in Brooklyn Heights has recently taken the crown for Brooklyn's most expensive penthouse, the $20 million (USD) unit outpacing recent luxury sales in the popular New York burrough by several million dollars. Boasting panoramic views of the East River and Manhattan skyline, the 7,433 square-foot penthouse comes with an equally impressive 1,179 square-foot terrace, making it the perfect urban oasis for a buyer in Brooklyn's exclusive but growing high-end luxury market.

The unit in question will be the result of combining two Marmol Radziner-designed suites into one. The 30th floor penthouse suite will thus be beautifully appointed with a California modernist aesthetic, thereby bringing a bit of the West Coast to the East.

Beyond the usual luxury accouterments and high-end finishes, Quay Tower has partnered with Amazon to make the penthouse, along with the rest of the units, Alexa-compatible. This capability will add a decidedly hi-tech element to the development, with owners able to control and customize their units with the swipe of a smartphone.

Part of Brooklyn Heights' ongoing urban transformation, Quay Tower is leading the charge in the area's expanding luxury market. Today a destination neighbourhood, away and apart from being a bargain, the area has now begun to command prices very comparable to Manhattan.
