About 330 Wythe Avenue #4E

Presenting the first ever resale of #4E at the EsquireBuilding, a sprawling 1439sf three bed, two bath duplex. Rarely available, units here are coveted and closely held, and are often sold to neighbors in the know without even hitting the open market.


Cookie cutter condos not cutting it for you? If a glass box in the sky is not your scene and you’re over overpaying for underused amenities, consider joining 77 lucky homeowners at the Esquire.


Formerly the seat of the Esquire Shoe Polish empire, a mid-century manufacturing maven, the eponymous building was erected in 1914 and reimagined at the turn of the 21st century.


The developer, herself a former manufacturer, put a new shine on this shoe polish factory, transforming it into one of Williamsburg’s first condo loft conversions. Two decades later, it remains the most unique case study and truest to its manufacturing roots. Like snowflakes, no two units were alike. Layouts were varied, and fixtures and finishes were left to the tastes of the original buyers.


Authentic industrial is the vibe throughout the building. The architect – owner retained the original character throughout the apartment — its appeal is not unlike that of an uncut diamond. The brushed metal entry door opens to an abbreviated foyer before spilling into the living room. A zig-zag of corner exposures facingSouth and West yield an array of bridge and river views. Sliders open to four juliet balconies, two on each floor.


More a minimally invasive surgery, than a renovation; less is more was the theme when the owner designed this unit – less sheetrock means more original exposed brick. Sans hardwood showcases the original poured concrete floors, sealed and polished. Beveled concrete ceilings were left exposed for maximum heights throughout. Some artifacts from the factory were preserved in place, like an ancient honey bee in amber — a pulley overhead, and a fire proof metal sliding door to the guest bedroom.


Preppers stock up on beer and babka at Mekelburg’s. Pro tip: use the middle griddle on your Samsung Stove to reincarnate the chocolate babka into french toast, — best served as breakfast in bed to your partner while taking in views of the Williamsburg Bridge.


Green thumbs rejoice: a bi-level roof top veggie garden with lounge seating lets you socialize outdoors from a safe distance while taking in city views. Composting and geo-thermal HVAC let you do your part to save the planet without leaving the building.


This unit has equal appeal to end users and investors alike. Pre-COVID rents point to a 4 cap at the asking price. Enjoy living in your investment now, and rent it out later when you are on to your next adventure.


Your unfussy lobby features a lending library (no late fees), keyed and intercom buzzer entry (accessible from smartphone app).


PS 84 is down the block. Next door, 12 Chairs remains open for take out. Misi, Tacocina and Sunday in Brooklyn all nearby..


Domino Park, a six acre oasis of waterfront recreation and Brooklyn's answer to the High Line (brought to you by the same award winning designers), is down the block.


Centrally located to the JMZ, ferry, and newly reopened L train. Zip Cars across the street, Citbikes and Revel scooters both nearby. If you must have a car, a parking lot for the residents is available (fee/waitlist).


Pet friendly and live in super. CC = $305 per mo. Taxes $13,007/yr.


Try before you buy, the unit is available for rent or sale, $8000/mo and $2M respectively. *Open House is By Appointment
