Spring is just around the corner, which can only mean one thing: New York’s real estate market is about to pick up, and quickly.

And of course, that can only mean one thing for real estate aficionados: It’s time to look at the rentals that will be hitting New York’s real estate market in the next few months. Across a handful of developments, there are apartments for rent in some of the city’s most anticipated megaprojects, along with under-the-radar outer-borough buildings and “affordable” apartments.

It’s a lot to take in, and as always, if we missed anything, the tipline is right this way. And for condos, head right this way.

Developments are listed geographically, starting at Manhattan’s southern tip and continuing north, then through the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and New Jersey.

Another Essex Crossing rental will start leasing for its 263 apartments—121 of which are affordable units that are currently available through the city’s housing lottery—this spring. The units are a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, and pricing for the market-rate units is up there: Studios start at $3,500/month, and a three-bedroom might rent for as much as $9,000/month. (The affordable units, available for those making 40 to 165 percent of the area median income, range from $562/month for a studio to $3,770/month for a three-bedroom.) The 25-story building, designed by Handel Architects, is also home to part of the Market Line, as well as office space and ground floor retail.

Another Greenpoint Landing rental, Two Blue Slip, launched leasing on its 421 units earlier this year. Of the apartments that are currently available, the cheapest is a studio for $3,248/month, and the priciest is a three-bedroom renting for close to $10,800/month. The building, designed by Handel Architects, has an extra-fancy amenity called the Club at Two Blue Slip, with a bilevel fitness center, an outdoor deck, and a pool with reservable cabanas.

The Dime

A lot adjacent to Brooklyn’s landmarked Dime Savings Bank building, located at the corner of South 5th and Havemeyer streets, is well on its way to becoming a 177-unit rental building (with offices on the lower floors), with leasing due to launch this spring. The property has been slated for residences for some time now, but construction only got underway a couple of years ago, and the 23-story structure next to the bank building topped out in 2019. The new structure will have studio through three-bedroom apartments, along with two penthouses; pricing will begin at about $3,000/month for the smallest units. There are also 54 units available through the city’s housing lottery.

This 250-unit rental from the Hudson Companies is located on Clarkson Avenue, on the border of Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Flatbush. It’ll have mostly market-rate apartments, with studios starting at $2,275/month (the priciest apartments are three-bedrooms, which start at $4,200/month), but there will also be 75 “affordable” apartments available for those making between $59,000 and $175,000 per year. Amenities in the CetraRuddy-designed building include a roof terrace, gym, playroom for kids, and a game room.

Camber Property Group and Valyrian Capital are behind this Ridgewood rental with 132 units. Apartments are available in studio through three-bedroom configurations, and 30 percent will be deemed “affordable” through the city’s housing lottery. The building, designed by Aufgang Architects (with interiors by the Meshberg Group), will come with amenities like a bike room, two roof terraces, and a co-working lounge.
