A Jehovah’s Witnesses warehouse, in Dumbo, that was replaced by a 12-story rental has launched leasing on its 84 apartments. The red brick building is located on Front Street, between Jay and Bridge Streets, and was developed by Urban RP and Megalith Capital Management.

Apartments here come in one to three-bedroom variants and they’re predictably pricey for homes in Dumbo. Net effective rents on one-bedrooms start at $3,277/month, two-bedroom, two-baths start at $4,985/month, and three-bedroom, two-baths start at $6,508/month.

Units at the Aufgang Architects-designed building have oak flooring; Caesarstone countertops in the kitchen and a swanky, stainless steel appliance package by KitchenAid; and bathrooms here have Urbanite Stone porcelain walls and floors and come with a glass-enclosed shower or tub. Aside from that, all apartments have their own washers and dryers, and many of them come with private terraces or balconies.

Residents in the building at 181 Front Street will have access to amenities like a double-height lobby, a fitness center, a rooftop terrace with views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines, a children’s playroom, a stroller room, and bicycle parking.

Aside from the 84 market-rate apartments, the building also has 21 affordable apartments. The lottery on those launched in March 2017 with apartments asking from $895/month.

Halstead Property Development Marketing is handling leasing at the property and the first set of residents are expected to move in later this month. The same development team and architect also worked together on the transformation of the nearby 200 Water Street.
