As promised, a rooftop putting green.

For a few years now, we've known 175 Kent as just a part of the neighborhood big dig that brought us 184 Kent, Northside Piers, and the Edge. 175 Kent is later to the party, but it still wants to have a good time: for outdoor types, there's the rooftop putting green; for the more indoors-y, there's a computer game. The building recently completed its rooftop and amenities spaces?shown in the gallery above, along with two model units?so we swung by for a tour.
A bunch of the building's listings saw a RentUpper of 14 percent in March. Now, we see listings for 17 available units, ranging in price from a $2,292/month studio to a $4,265/month two-bedroom. Any takers, or was the early rent increase too optimistic?

UPDATE: Building reps tell us the place is officially 80 percent leased.
