33-story Downtown Brooklyn rental with rare public space gears up for leasing

New, 6 comments

The building, designed by Woods Bagot, will have apartments starting at $2,100/month

Amid Downtown Brooklyn’s crowded rental market, the 33-story building at 120 Nassau Street stands out—quite literally, since it’s the tallest building in its immediate area. Developed by AmTrust Realty Corp, the property’s transformation—the site was once home to an office building—into a new residential tower has been underway for several years. Now, as the development gears up to launch leasing, more details on its apartments—as well as more renderings of the project—are coming out.

A website for the project, now known as The Amberly, offers a glimpse at what future residents could expect. The building has 270 apartments, a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. In keeping with typical prices for the neighborhood—where the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $3,200/month—those units won’t be cheap; studios will begin at $2,100/month, one-beds at $3,100/month, two-bedrooms at $5,500/month, and three-bedrooms from a whopping $8,800/month.

The building was designed by Woods Bagot—the firm’s first building in the U.S.—and has a copper-colored facade “inspired by the brownstones of Brooklyn.” According to the architects, the units were placed “so that every tenant can get the best possible view of the teeming Manhattan skyline.”

Inside, the apartments have 9-foot ceilings, along with high-end appliances and a sleek, muted design. Amenities include all of the usual suspects—private parking, concierge, a fitness center, a lounge—as well as The Overlook, a 33rd-floor common space that’ll provide stellar views of Manhattan.

It’ll have one nice perk for non-residents: a 10,000-square-foot public plaza by Curbed Groundbreakers SCAPE—who’ve created similar open space at the American Copper Buildings and Battery Park City—which is due to open this summer.
