Pierhouse, Toll Brothers’ hotel/condo project currently rising beside Pier 1 of Brooklyn Bridge Park, has already sold more than a dozen units, but the building itself is still little more than a dirt pit. We visited the site yesterday, and the first parts of the northern structure are starting to rise. The 108-unit development consists of two buildings, one on either side of Squibb Park pedestrian bridge, which crosses over the site. The northern building will rise 10 stories and hold a 200-room hotel, plus condos. The hotel part will be at the end of the site, closest to Old Fulton Street; this is currently where most of the construction is taking place. The southern building will be smaller, rising just five stories. Units range from one- to five-bedrooms, and eighty percent have private outdoor space. The website has an abundance of floorplans, and prices start at $1.05 million for a one-bedroom. The most expensive units will ask more than $11 million.
