Located on the 12th floor of the former Standish Arms Hotel building at 171 Columbia Heights, the residence was last on the market for $16.645 million before going into contract. If the sale goes through for that hefty price, it will beat out the current record holder — a townhouse located at 177 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill that sold for $15.5 million in 2015, according to Curbed.
The sprawling penthouse residence is a combination of three top-floor units, making it a total of 6,218 square feet, according to The Real Deal. The apartment features six bedrooms and a 3,366-square-foot terrace.
The building once housed the elegant Beaux-Arts Standard Arms Hotel, which opened in 1903 before being converted into a 94-unit rental building in 2007, according to The Real Deal. DDG and Westbrook Partners purchased the building in 2014 for $60 million to develop the Standish, a luxe, 28-unit condominium.
Sales at the Standish launched in September 2016, with prices starting at $1.29 million for a 856-square-foot one-bedroom and skyrocketing up to $4.495 million for a 2,405-square-foot four-bedroom unit, according to Curbed.
Current availabilities in the building include a 2,973-square-foot five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath unit on the 11th floor with an asking price of $7.135 million.
