You don’t see many unconverted lofts on the market in Brooklyn these days, but this 2,500-square-foot two-bedroom pad in Clinton Hill seems like the real deal. Although it’s currently configured as a two-bedroom, renters could probably build out an extra bedroom or two to offset the cost.
There are some very high tin ceilings and large, wonderful banks of windows. The kitchen and bathroom both look pretty standard for a rental, and the kitchen has nice dark wood cabinets and a dishwasher. Given the amount of space, the price doesn’t seem too bad. It also sits next to the now-vacant Clinton Hill legend, the Broken Angel (visible at the far left of the exterior photo).
There might be a catch, though: The loft is in fact so authentic it seems to still be classified as a factory rather than residential, according to PropertyShark. What appears to be its most recent certificate of occupancy dates from the 1950s and is for two factories. What do you think of it for $4,200 a month?
A newly constructed rental building at 150 Broadway in Williamsburg launched leasing just before Thanksgiving and is already discounting its rents, Curbed reported. Ideal Properties is marketing the building, which has dropped asking rents on all five of its units by $50 to $450 this week.
The developer is restaurateur Vittorio Antonini, who owns La Lanterna de Vittorio and Enoteca in the Village. Rents on the no-fee apartments range from $2,800 for a studio to $5,950 for a three-bedroom with two bathrooms.
The building is new construction but has some old elements, such as the fireplaces, Curbed noted. Click through to the jump for more shots of the interior. What do you think of the units and the pricing?
This nicely renovated three-bedroom in Crown Heights seems like a good value. The living room is well-sized, and its three windows help open up the room. That framed exposed brick behind the drywall is interesting too. The kitchen looks narrow, but the appliances are brand new and the island offers additional counter space. There are two nicely sized bedrooms and one rather narrow one at 7 feet by 12 feet; they all have closets and windows, according to the listing. For $733 a person, it’s a decent apartment. What do you think of it for $2,200 a month?
This three-bedroom, 2.5-bath short-term rental in Carroll Gardens is bright and modern, and it comes furnished. It’s a penthouse unit in the luxury rental development at 360 Smith Street, which was fully rented by the summer of 2011. The furnishings look lovely if you like pink and purple, and the apartment seems quite spacious. The kitchen is well-sized with a large island for entertaining. Meanwhile, the master bathroom, painted lavender, has a double sink, glassed-in standing shower and a separate bathtub.
Apparently the third bedroom is smaller than the other two, appropriate for a guest room or a large office, the broker notes. There’s also a private terrace! The building has a fitness center, and parking costs $300 per month. How do you feel about the $7,900 a month rent? Seems like a sweet pad if you’re renting on the corporate dime.
This two-bedroom floor-through in Windsor Terrace has some lovely prewar details. The ornate fretwork screen is very pretty, and there are some nice moldings on the walls and around the windows, along with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen and bathroom both seem serviceable and clean, though maybe not exactly modern. However, the kitchen looks quite large, as does the master bedroom and the living room. And it’s not terribly far from Prospect Park and the F/G trains. What do you think of it for $2,600 a month?
Real estate developer and New York Observer owner Jared Kushner has bought a Williamsburg rental building at 50 North 1st for $33,800,000, The Real Deal reported. The seven-story, 46-unit building was previously owned by a partnership between Property Markets Group and Largo Investments, which bought the building in 2011 for $10,490,000. PMG bought the building from the bank after the initial developer, Israel Gold, defaulted. DOB violations and other construction issues had stalled construction for years, and in 2009, a partial building collapse at the construction site forced an evacuation at the building next door.
Construction at the 54,699-square-foot building dragged on for five years until it finally wrapped in 2012. The developer released six rental units in May and another 12 have followed since then. The apartments were one- and two-bedrooms priced from $3,175 to $4,325 a month.
Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, has been expanding into Brooklyn. In October, Kushner Companies partnered with two others to purchase a huge parcel of five former Witnesses properties in Dumbo for $375,000,000.
This two-bedroom, two-bath condo for rent in Flatbush has plenty of living space and looks brand new. The bedrooms and living room seem spacious, and there’s a private terrace. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances typical of a condo, including a dishwasher, and a great amount of cabinet space. There’s some lovely dark tile and rather ornate, marble-topped sinks in the bathrooms, which seem very nice and bright. The apartment also has a washer and dryer in the unit and can come with a parking space for $200 more a month. The building has a roof deck and fitness center, and it’s close to SUNY Downstate and the 2/5 trains. Do you think the rent is fair at $2,195 a month?
This three-bedroom, two-bath apartment in northern Crown Heights is spacious but pricey for the hood. It’s the top-floor apartment in a townhouse that appears to have been completely gutted and chopped up from a two-family into four apartments. But the 1,500-square-foot pad has some nice amenities. The kitchen and bathroom are completely new, and there’s a dishwasher and central A/C. It even has a little private terrace. The bedrooms seem decently sized, and the living room looks pretty large. Do you think it will rent for $3,994 a month?
This one-bedroom in Bed Stuy is spacious and freshly renovated. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and a decent amount of cabinet space, and the bathroom looks pretty standard. But this apartment’s selling point is definitely its size: The living room and bedroom are both very large for a one-bedroom. So large, in fact, that you could probably easily split the bedroom into two to offset the rent.
And a few original details survived the reno, like the hardwood floors and a little bit of ornate woodwork above the doorway to the bedroom. The only downside is that it’s about nine blocks to the C train at Kingston-Throop and 10 blocks to the A/C at Nostrand. What do you think of it for $1,800 a month?
The downtown high rise known as 66 Rockwell launched this week, as BuzzBuzzHome was the first to note. The 42-story building has 327 rental apartments, 20 percent of which are affordable. Those are already gone; the market rate units now leasing start at $2,400 for a studio and go up as high as $4,390 for a two-bedroom.
The apartments have bamboo floors, recessed lighting, granite counters in the kitchen, white quartz counters in the bathroom and Kohler sinks. Some units have balconies or washers and dryers.

This beautifully renovated three-bedroom, four-bathroom townhouse in Brooklyn Heights must be one of the most expensive Brooklyn rentals on the market right now. The four-story brick house has a full floor master suite, two additional bedrooms each with ensuite bath, windowed kitchen, living room, dining room, breakfast nook, media room, full basement and an attached indoor garage.
The features include two large landscaped terraces, a working fireplace, a dumbwaiter, a whole house sound system, central heat and air and free broadband Internet and HD cable service for up to four TVs. Also a quick glance at public records tells us the current owner bought the house for the surprisingly affordable price of $1,188,390 back in the economic nosedive of 2009. In any case, what do you think of this house and its $18,000 a month rent? Update: PropertyShark had the last sale price wrong. It traded hands in 2009 for $3,050,000, according to ACRIS.
This two-bedroom floor-through apartment in Boerum Hill has a nice amount of square footage and a great location. The 1,200 square foot apartment has six rooms, including a formal dining room, office, small den and a large living room. The kitchen is big enough for a small dining table and has a dishwasher. There’s also a walk-in closet and a big kitchen pantry. What do you think of it for $3,000 a month?
