The Union, a large, glassy rental building on Union Avenue in Williamsburg (not to be confused with The Union, a different large, glassy rental building on Union Avenue in Williamsburg), has begun leasing with available units ranging from a $2,292/month studio to a $3,988/month 2BR. The Karl Fischer-designed building is slated to include 85 units and, if renderings are to be believed, feature a rooftop putting green and cabana. (It's possible that renderings are not to be believed, as that particular one has a small print disclaimer reading, "Artist rendering. Final results may vary.") Amenities that The (other) Union will definitely have, though, include a media room, gym, concierge, doorman, health club, and yoga room. Construction is expected to be finished in 2014.
