As you come out of Lower Manhattan by way of the Brooklyn Bridge, you come upon 3 popular neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, and Fort Greene. All three of these neighborhoods have a story behind them. I’d like to tell how the Fort Greene neighborhood in the New York borough of Brooklyn got its name. In 1776, during the Revolutionary War, the Continetal Army led by a man named Greene built a fort East of Brooklyn Heights. The site of the construction is now Fort Greene Park.
Much like the Continental Army, Two Trees Management is building modern day forts. We refer to them as luxury apartment buildings. Currently, they have 12 complexes in the New York area.
In Fort Greene, there is a luxury building called 300Ashland. Unlike the forts built during the Revolutionary War, this new luxury apartment building has conveniences soldiers probably never even dreamed of. Things like a full time doorman, 24 hour concierge, a parking garage, and a 24 hour health club. I think the best part of the convenience package is the terrace on the roof.
300 Ashland Place has an available studio apartment for rent. Unit 20P, is the smallest of the studio units that are on the market. For $2709 per month you get 426sqft of living space.
There are some pros and cons to this unit. I like that the kitchen is immediately inside the front door and doesn’t interfere with the rest of the living space. Just to the right, as you come in the door, is the bathroom. Just a few steps into the unit, the room opens up to the 16′ x 13’11” living area. Immediately to your left is the washer/dryer, and next to that you have 2 closets. The one thing I don’t see in this unit is a sleeping alcove. When you get passed the kitchen, the rest of the unit is just one big open space.
The key features of the apartment inlcuded features in the unit include white oak hardwood floors, Bosch washer/dryer, stainless steel kitchen appliances, Caesarstone and stainless steel countertops, in-sink garbage disposal, Hans Grohe bathroom fixtures, and LED energy efficient track lighting. The large large ceiling-height windows have solar shades installed. And, dont loose that keycard, ‘cuz you might not be able to get into your apartment without it.
