The website for controversial Carroll Gardens rental building 360 Smith Street has gone live, and it furthers the notion that you can't believe everything you see on the Internet. While the rendering of the building looks slightly different from the reality, we're really confused by the artist's interpretation of the yard area in front of 360 Smith that also leads to the new subway entrance. It's about half that size in real life, ain't it? And how do the locals feel, after years of sparring with the building's developer, about this little piece of copywriting: "A close-knit community of long-time Carroll Gardens residents who warmly greet you from their 19th century garden brownstones." While the muffins get baked for the welcome baskets, let's talk about amenities and pricing.
We already got a preview from the 360 Smith brochure, but here's the big reveal:
Premium apartment features, including: bathrooms equipped with Toto fixtures and Duravit soaking tubs; custom-designed kitchen with stone countertop and Energy Star stainless steel appliances; video intercom; and washer-dryer. Essential building amenities, including a rooftop oasis, state-of-the art fitness center, elevator access, playground, storage, and parking.
With the ultimate synergy of modern luxury set in a historic neighborhood and transportation at your doorstep, 360 Smith Street is Carroll Gardens living at its best.
Studios from: $2,025 per month.
1 Bedrooms from: $2,750 per month.
2 Bedrooms from: $3,800 per month.

Those seem to be the going rates for new luxury rentals no matter the neighborhood or borough these days. But will they fly in Carroll Gardens?
