They will be the two highest, and arguably the most luxurious, residences in Sag Harbor.
Rising from the rubble of the so-called 1-800-LAWYERS building, the two condos on Sag Harbor Cove will abut a new park and beach adjacent to Long Wharf. The property, originally owned by the Remkus family, was home to the Whalers Motel; a fishing station and the Seaside restaurant were also part of the complex.
On Friday August 2, a project helmed by Jay Bialsky was unveiled to the public after languishing for years.
The project, featuring two available residences, will be the tallest building in Sag Harbor. Organizers said it would transform previously barricaded beaches into a family-friendly recreational facility.
The property previously sat unusable for 13 years. Jay Bialsky, Edward Hollander, and Andre Kikoski came onboard and gained all necessary approvals within five months. Both residences at 2 West Water will offer buyers a unique waterfront experience that includes two private boat slips per residence, and jewel‐box glass rooms to maximize the harbor’s western‐facing views. There will be a parking garage underneath.
Realized in contemporary form, architect Kikoski’s groundbreaking design is distinctly rooted in the past yet carefully crafted with a forward look to the future.
The exacting design is nothing short of breathtaking. The brick exterior harkens back to Sag Harbor’s industrial heritage and provides reference to the watchcase factory in the center of town that has since been converted to condos as well.
Each residence, on four levels, is topped by a rooftop terrace with far-reaching water views and extraordinary sunsets.
A private marina allows for visitors by sea. The residents are also only a half-block from the NYC-bound buses.
Residence Y and Residence Z are priced at approximately $21.95 million and $19.95 million respectively, and situated right next to the new park. The developers waived 60 percent of their building rights to make the park more user friendly.
The properties will be exclusively listed by Bespoke Real Estate.
