A new rental building in Bed-Stuy that’s being marketed toward the neighborhood’s newer, gentrifying residents promises "a level of product never before seen in the neighborhood.” The DeKalb at 740 DeKalb Avenue is, of course, a ground-up building offering one- and two-bedroom rentals in the “classic Brooklyn neighborhood full of historic tree-lined streets, lively restaurants, and quaint cafes,” per its website.
Several of The DeKalb’s 37 apartments hit the market last week, with one-bedrooms asking from $2,200/month and two-bedrooms on the market from $2,900/month—all being offered through Halstead Property Development Marketing without a fee.
For all of the bespoke language surrounding the building, the apartments sound par for the course for luxe rentals: white oak plank flooring, dedicated heating and cooling units, and solar shades can be found in each apartment. Kitchens have white quartz countertops and backsplashes, stainless steel under-mount sinks, and Fisher & Paykal appliances, save for the Bosch dishwasher. Bathrooms come decked out in porcelain tiles, a walnut vanity and a walnut-framed medicine cabinet with brushed nickel fixtures.
The building isn’t attended but has a virtual doorman, and includes other techy amenities like a LaundryView control system that tells users how many of the building’s washers and dryers are in use through its website. More traditional comforts come through the landscaped roof deck that includes loungers, grills, and dining areas; bike storage; a gym; a lounge and billiard room; and parking.
