When the first rendering surfaced, we referred to 146 South 4th Street as "yet another ugly rental building," but that was before we found out that there's going to be a hopscotch ... court? pitch? ... thing on the roof deck. The 113-unit, Rabsky Group-developed building recently launched its website and opened for leasing, and renters have already put down deposits on 17 of the apartments, including all six of the smaller $1,825/month studios, according to Fiddler Realty, who is handling the leasing and marketing. The remaining units start at $2,275 for studios, $2,650 for 1BRs, and $3,825 for 2BRs (all net effective rent).
The ten-story building, designed by the surging Nataliya Donskoy, offers such amenities as a full-time doorman, gym, and multiple lounges. At least from the renderings, it appears to be fairly committed to the whole "modern rustic look," possibly to its detriment. On the bright side, though, the building was designed with energy efficiency in mind and each unit has floor-to-ceiling windows and at least one balcony.
