After years of planning and work, Downtown Brooklyn's massive City Point development is finally getting to the point where it may soon have residents. The market-rate rentals at City Tower became available late last year, and now, Tower One—otherwise known as the 7 DeKalb Avenue, or the megaproject's 80 percent affordable building—is also getting ready for move-ins. Of the building's 250 units, 50 are market-rate (and rent-stabilized!), and 18 of those will become available today. The units are a mix of one- and two-bedrooms varying in size, with the one-beds starting at $2,750 and the two-beds starting at $4,500. (In comparison, the affordable apartments are a mix of studios, one-beds, and two-beds, with prices ranging from $538 for a one-bed to $2,455 for a two-bed.) Like the other City Point buildings, this one is designed by COOKFOX, with interiors by SLCE Architects and BanG Studio; amenities include communal outdoor spaces, a doorman, a movie room, and a children's playroom. Move-ins should happen sometime in the next few months.
