Do the perks make this One Brooklyn Bridge Park studio worth the high price?

While $830,000 for a studio isn't anyone's idea of cheap, with its large windows, clever layout, and long list of high-end extras, we still find ourselves eyeing this luxury condo loft in at One Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn Heights.

As you'd expect, there's an open kitchen and dining area, which looks onto a spacious living room. A note about those large windows: the listing says they're from CitiQuiet, meaning the apartment will be relatively well-insulated from outside street noise. And most notably, the living room is separated from a sleeping alcove by a custom-designed "storage wall" that includes bookshelves in the living room, and on the bedroom side, a desk, drawers, and TV cabinet. This means both built-in storage and the sense that the bedroom is its own separate space in the apartment.

The bathroom and kitchen are both modestly sized but outfited with modern finishes and appliances, and there's also a washer and dryer in the apartment. For extras that just won't fit in the apartment, or are used seasonally, a "storage cage" on the same floor as the apartment is included with the purchase.

As for the building itself, it's a 1928 loft warehouse—a former Jehovah’s Witnesses’ printing plant—converted into luxury condos back in 2009. (It's also found itself at the center of recent neighborhood controversy surrounding opposition to new development in the area.)

There are plenty of perks to go around, including doormen, porters, and a concierge, as well as a gym and loads of extra rooms (yoga studios, play rooms, golf simulator, conference rooms, screening rooms, etc.).
