The vast majority of Brooklyn Heights was protected by the city's first historic district designation in the 1960s, but a small swath along Cadman Plaza West was not. So leave it to today's developers to sniff that out and build a new 19-story rental building on Montague Street between Clinton Street and Cadman Plaza West. Billed as "the first ground up new development rental high rise to come to market in Brooklyn Heights since 1999," 172 Montague Street is bringing 62 brand-spankin'-new rentals designed by Daniel Goldner Architects to the development-shy 'hood. They're not cheap either: a batch of listings range from $3,995 for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom to $8,250 for the three-bedroom, two-bathroom. Early rumors surrounding the development claimed that some apartments would ask up to $9,000 a month.
The apartments, which range from studios to three-bedrooms, all have a washer and dryer, built in sound system and Nest thermostat, and a walk-in-closet. It sounds like the bedrooms tend to the smaller side: master bedrooms can fit queen-sized beds but secondary bedrooms can only "comfortably" fit full-sized beds. The kitchens' appliances are stainless, and have Quartz Master countertops with marble backsplashes and custom Miton cabinets. The bathrooms are done up in Calcutta marble. The building has a common rooftop with an outdoor viewing area, tables, and cabanas.
