Williamsburg ghost building 111 Kent changed hands in March for $24.6 million, selling to Laurence Gluck's Stellar Management and 349 Metropolitan developer Largo Investments. Gluck and Largo promised to finish the then-90 percent-completed building and bring it back to the market as a rental this summer. The listings have yet to hit the market, but Brownstoner noticed some signs of life in the form of a teaser site and a StreetEasy description. The latter gives us a hint of the amenities to come: "The sophistication continues in an amenities package that includes a rooftop pool and sundeck as well as a Zen garden. A state-of-the-art fitness center and high-tech resident’s lounge are lively social hubs. There’s also a doorman, valet parking, and storage spaces available to streamline your metropolitan routines." We don't really associate Zen gardens with Gluck, but hey, there's a first time for everything.
