Brooklyn’s Fourth Avenue is getting yet another new rental building: Say hello to No. 223, located between Union and President streets, which begins leasing this weekend.

Greystone Development, which is behind the project, has been working to bring a rental to the site since 2015, and until recently, also owned the Brooklyn Lyceum next door. The firm used air rights from the Lyceum to build bigger, but ultimately sold the landmarked building earlier this year for around $10 million.

The development has just 63 apartments, a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedrooms that will average around 900 square feet. Daniel Goldner Architects designed the 13-story building, which is clad in red brick at street level to echo the existing architecture of the neighborhood, and yellow brick further up—it resembles the material used on the revamped Lyceum, in fact.

Inside, the apartments have large windows, muted color palettes, and all the usual modern conveniences—walk-in closets, in-unit washer/dryers, and the like—you find at luxury rentals. Amenities include a roof deck, a common residents’ lounge, a virtual doorman, and bike storage.

MNS is handling leasing for the building, with rents beginning at $2,315 (net effective) for a studio, and rising from there.
