If you've ever wanted to live at the mouth of the Manhattan Bridge, here's some good news: that's never been easier now that, about ten years into their development, the apartments at 60 Duffield Street (nee 85 Flatbush Avenue Extension) have finally started leasing. Filings for the building say the 64 studio to two-bedroom apartments sit on top of a 174-room hotel, which makes the apartments' lauded "design and style of a boutique hotel" sound pretty legit, because they are in fact atop a boutique hotel. Apartments in the building begin on the seventh floor, and studios are renting from $2,400, one-bedrooms from $3,600, and two-bedrooms from $4,400 per month via Bold New York. The original building for the site, designed by the one and only Gene Kaufman, was thankfully ditched in favor of a much more bland glass box courtesy of Kutnicki Berstein Architects that still packs in all the requisite amenities, like a landscaped roof deck and fitness center.
