Brooklyn NYC residential apartments is a broad subject to cover. Do you know how many neighborhoods are in Brooklyn? I counted 43. Each neighborhood has its pros and cons, so when you are searching for residential apartment buildings, you need to do your own research before you decide which area to live in.
Let’s talk today about the neighborhood of Fort Greene. Fort Greene is a historic area, South of BUMBO, and East of Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene is considered to be the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Now that we are finished with the history lesson, let’s get to the real reason I am writing this article. I want to tell you about a specific residential apartment building that I found in Fort Greene. It’s called 300 Ashland Place, which just happens to be the address. The 35 story, 379-unit luxury building is basically brand new. People didn’t start moving in until September of this year. The management team made sure to provide the residents with accommodating amenities including a roof top deck, a doorman, front desk concierge, a parking garage, and bike storage. On the 29th floor there is a resident lounge and 24-hour state-of-the-art health club with free weights, cardio equipment and a yoga studio. In addition to the amenities, all in the same building you can read a book in the library or watch a movie in one of the 4 theaters.
One of the studio apartments availabe for rent is Unit 16M. Listed for $2838 per month, you get 523 sqft of living space. Just like the community facilites in the building, the apartment interiors are clean and elegant. Every apartment has ceiling-high windows with solar shades, bedroom windows with black out shades, white oak hardwood floors, Corian windowsills, Caesarstone and stainless steel countertops in the kitchen to go along with the stainless steel Bosch appliances, washer/dryer, Grohe bathroom fixtures, and keyless electronic entry into the apartment.
The layout of the studio apartment looks like this. Follow me with your imagination. When you enter the unit, there is a sort of foyer, and the bathroom is on your left. Just passed the bathroom is the washer and dryer, to the left of the washer/dryer is a standard size closet. The room opens up to the 17′ x 15′ living area. At the far end of the living area, along the left wall is another closet. All kitchen appliances, and the kitchen sink are on the East wall, which would be to your right as you enter the room.
