Developed in partnership with Lonicera Partners, Orange Management and The Davis Companies,the condominium recently topped out and is being readied for first closings in less than a year.
“Honoring its remarkable surroundings, the picturesque tree lined streets and distinguished architecture of Brooklyn Heights, we’re excited to unveil The Symon, which brings a beautiful, design conscious, contextually-inspired building to the neighborhood,” said Steve Rutter, Head of New Development New York at Compass Development (Stribling Marketing Associates), who is exclusively handling sales and marketing for the building.“In addition to the idyllic residential neighborhood just outside your door, the location offers seamless access Brooklyn’s best dining, retail, cultural venues, and parks, as well as the best transportation hubs in New York City.”
Designed inside and out by Studio DB – the New York-based design firm led by husband and wife Damian and Britt Zunino known for their custom home portfolio and high-end interiors work including One Clinton in Brooklyn and One Vandam in SoHo – the building’s overall aesthetic draws inspiration from the celebrated heritage of Brooklyn Heights. Colberg Architecture, led by founder Eugene Colberg who has designed and master-planned a host of projects around the country, is the Project Architect for The Symon.
“Our vision for The Symon is deeply rooted in the rich story of Brooklyn Heights,” said Britt and Damian Zunino of Studio DB. “We drew inspiration from historic buildings and elements throughout the neighborhood, while infusing contemporary details throughout. It was important to us to reference the past with contextual exterior finishes and traditional interior design motifs, but to do so through a modern lens.”
The Symon’s captivating facade marries rich, natural materials with classic detailing to evoke the character and distinction of the neighborhood’s treasured townhouses and grand apartments. With its distinctive arched windows, prominent canopied entryway and hand laid brick, The Symon’s façade makes a stately presence along Schermerhorn’s charming streetscape.
Upon entering the building, the 24-7 attended lobby is accentuated with signature design elements including hand-painted wall coverings, custom oak paneling, marble floor patterns modeled on classic marquetry, and select furnishings taken from modern and Old-world collections.
