One of the most hotly anticipated (and contentious) rental developments of the past few years has been the Enclave at the Cathedral, the Brodsky Organization's twin 15-story towers that have risen next to—and obscure—the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. (The as-yet-unfinished church does, at least, benefit from the development in the form of a $5 million subsidy for the duration of Brodsky's lease.) Today, the developer announced that leasing has begun for the Enclave's 430 rental units, and there are four apartments currently listed on the project's website.
The breakdown will happen like so: studios will be $2,400/month, one-bedrooms are $3,050/month, a two-bedroom/one bathroom unit is $4,215/month, and a two-bedroom with two bathrooms will rent for $4,720/month. The development's website currently shows four different units, each of which shows what those apartment types may look like. Spoiler: they have high-end finishes (the kitchen is the "focal point," per a press release), big windows, and custom cabinets. The building itself has plenty of amenities, including outdoor communal space, a fitness center, and an art gallery connecting the two buildings; there are also views straight into the Cathedral (which, somehow, is not a New York City landmark) from some of the apartments. The renderings below even show the church's famed peacocks, who've roamed its grounds for several years.
