Amidst a bevy of new Williamsburg rentals, the Wythe Confectionary is trying something different: a new name and a new look for a building that's not, er, actually new. The first 10 listings have popped up for the former Matchett Candy Factory at 390 Wythe Avenue, now 69 studio through two-bedroom apartments. We'd already heard some tidbits about pricing, but now we have a few more specifics to tide us over until we get a peek inside. Studios start at $1900/month. The 1BRs listed so far start at $2650/month, and the sole 2BR on the market right now is asking $3800/month. Amenities: bike storage, parking, roof deck. Prices are fairly similar to those at new construction 'Burg rental 34 Berry, which range from $1750/month to $3820/month for all the luxury bells and whistles. Who will win the old vs. new deathmatch?
