A spate of new apartment buildings has popped up along Brooklyn’s Fourth Avenue in recent years, turning the once-industrial “canyon of mediocrity” into a hub of residential activity (the mediocrity of the thoroughfare is, however, still up for debate).
One of the developers that’s been the most active in that mini-boom is Adam America Real Estate, which is behind a bunch of buildings along Fourth Avenue; one of those, on the corner of 11th Street, recently debuted its rentals, with move-ins slated for early August.
The building, known by its address (237 11th Street), is a collaboration between Adam America, Slate Property Group, and Naveh Schuster, and will have 105 apartments over its 12 stories. It replaced a row of small wood-frame houses that once stood on that corner; those were demolished in 2014, and the new structure, designed by Aufgang Architects, has been rising steadily since then.
The rentals themselves are a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, all of which come with the standard high-end finishes and fixtures (though some of the materials here, like Caesarstone concrete counters, do stand out a bit). Some also have private outdoor space. The building also has the usual laundry list of communal amenities, including a roof deck with grills, a fitness center, a library, and a courtyard.
Residents will pay for the pleasure of those perks, though: studios begin at $2,196/month; one-bedrooms go from $2,658/month; and they go up from there. The priciest unit that’s currently up for grabs is a two-bedroom asking $3,509/month. Citi Habitats is handling marketing (listings and floorplans can be found here), and for the time being apartments are being leased with concessions (of course): no broker’s fee and one month of free rent.
The building will also come with an unheard-of perk for this particular thoroughfare: a Starbucks, the first to open in the nebulous area on the border of Park Slope and Gowanus.
