Straddling the Downtown Brooklyn/Fort Greene border and climbing 36 stories high, the 80 DeKalb Avenue luxury rental tower has been known as the new big Brooklyn thing that developer Bruce Ratner actually built. But lately it has taken on a new identity, DKLB BKLN, and this ready-to-go entry in a crowded field of new neighborhood rental towers (Avalon Fort Greene, The Brooklyner, etc.) is showing off its new personality. The DKLB BKLN website has been fully fleshed out, including a peek at some rental rates. Under "Availability," the mentioned rents for December move-ins start at $1,955 for studios, $2,255 for 1BRs and $3,400 for 2BRs. It's amenities galore at 80 De?pardon us, DKLB BKLN. A sampling: sun deck, screening room, valet parking(!), 24-hour doorman, gym, billiards lounge, private terraces and sweet sweet washer/dryers. It's no Nets arena, but for Bruce, it'll have to do. For now!
