A full floor with direct elevator entry, Penthouse A is a 3,062 square foot home that features 4 bedrooms, a study, 3.5 baths, and over 1,565 square feet of outdoor space spread across 3 distinct outdoor spaces (terrace, courtyard, and roof deck).
The penthouse sits on top of one of the two historic buildings that compromise 168 Plymouth originally built by Masury & Sons Paintworks in 1891 and 1921 to house their manufacturing and distribution facilities. Specifically, Penthouse A is perched atop 42 Jay a 7-story reinforced concrete building with large daylight factory windows built by Masury & Sons Paintworks in 1921.
168 Plymouth is comprised of two existing, interconnected buildings, 50 Jay and 42 Jay which share a cellar and exterior courtyard. 50 Jay the round arch style Brick & Timber building was erected in 1891 and is a 5-story structure. 42 Jay was built as an addition in 1921 and is a 7-story reinforced concrete building with large daylight factory windows.
50 Jay 42 Jay share a cellar and exterior courtyard. The two historic Dumbo buildings were built by Masury & Sons Paintworks to house their manufacturing and distribution facilities. Keeping each building’s distinctive industrial features intact, Alloy reworked them to create 46 beautifully considered homes designed around a lushly landscaped private courtyard entrance.
Alloy added a 1-story enlargement on 50 Jay and a 2-story enlargement on 42 Jay and added new penthouses additions to the top. The homes at 168 Plymouth include townhouses, brick & timber lofts, daylight factory lofts, and contemporary penthouse additions.
