Developer TF Cornerstone’s first residential development in Brooklyn, located at 33 Bond Street, is positively massive—the building will bring 714 rental units to a part of town that’s already overstuffed with apartments.
But the developer is hoping to lure potential residents with plenty of buzzwords and a spate of trendy amenities that promise “a new breed of city living in Brooklyn” that is “in tune with a new generation of millennial professionals and entrepreneurs.” (Translation: they’re hoping to capitalize on the cachet of the area.)
So what are those millennial-friendly amenities they’re using to lure renters, exactly? They range from a 2,000-square-foot farm-to-table coffee shop (an outpost of Devoción) to an on-site co-working space, along with a private elevated park with space for grillin’ and chillin’. There will also be a fitness center from an “iconic” brand, though who that is has yet to be revealed.
The more standard building amenities are a 24-hour concierge, a resident’s lounge with a pool table, a screening room, and bike storage.
As for the apartments themselves, they’ll average around 790 square feet, and have largely open-concept floorplans, with features like floor-to-ceiling windows, oak floors, chef’s kitchen. Nine listings have slipped onto TF Cornerstone’s website. The available apartments range from a $2,225/month studio to a $5,170/month two-bedroom, two-bathroom.
The Handel Architects-designed building also has 143 units set aside as affordable apartments. The lower and ground level will give way to 55,000 square feet of retail space and the project will offer parking. The 25-story building is still in the works but should be open for all those millennial residents by summer 2017.
