Just a little over two years after the project was first announced, leasing is now underway on a White Castle-replacing rental building on Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill. Dubbed, perhaps a little unimaginatively, as “Myrtle” the rental is one of two projects being developed in close proximity by Greystone Development. Together they’re known as Myrtle & Steuben, with the latter located at 100 Steuben Street.
The five-story building at 531 Myrtle Avenue features a total of 29 apartments which range in size from studios to two-bedrooms. Rents start from $2,300/month. Myrtle is the smaller of the two developments with apartments here varying between 400 to 895 square feet, but several of the units here have outdoor space. Amenities residents can avail of over include a rooftop terrace with a lounge and a barbecue area, bike storage, a fitness center, and a washer and dryer in every apartment.
The larger Steuben features 49 apartments that come in studios, one, two, and three-bedroom sizes. Rents here start at $2,300/month as well, but the units are a bit more spacious with sizes varying from 460 square feet to 1,140 square feet.
Both buildings were designed by AB Architekten and have retail components at the base. So far we only have details on Myrtle, which has 6,000-square-feet of retail. The first tenant to sign on here is the European Wax Center.
“With the growth of Brooklyn and our past success with Printhouse Lofts in Williamsburg and Waterbridge 47 in DUMBO, we are very excited to expand our presence into Clinton Hill, such a charming and desirable section of the borough,” Jeffrey Simpson, the head of Greystone Development, said in a statement.
Citi Habitats New Developments have been contracted to handle the leasing, and Myrtle’s sister rental, Steuben is expected to launch by the end of this year.
