DKLB: A Fort Greene Destination Building With Eye-Popping Views


    DKLB BKLN, a 365-unit building, was at the forefront of Brooklyn’s transformation and is among the most iconic on the Brooklyn skyline.

    It’s located at the intersection of Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn in the BAM Cultural District.

    The neighborhood’s sidewalk cafes, charming shops, and BAM Rose Cinemas — the local movie house — offer a laid-back, sophisticated vibe. Visit the farmers market and Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn’s first, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.

    Or have dinner at standout restaurants like Gentleman Farmer or Lulu & Po — great stops on the way to catch Drake or Blake Shelton at Barclays Center.

    The beauty of DKLB isn’t merely skin deep. Amenities include a fitness center decked out with a yoga/cardio studio, a full suite of weight training equipment and cardio machines. There is also a residents’ lounge with a wet bar, billiards table, cable TV and Wi-Fi. The landscaped sundeck is a great escape for residents to relax outdoors.

    DKLB residents and their guests can marvel at the striking views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, Fort Greene Park, and brownstone Brooklyn.

    Designed by Costas Kondylis, the architect behind more high-rises in Manhattan than anyone else, DKLB BKLN was among the first green rental buildings in Brooklyn when it opened at 80 Dekalb Avenue and is silver LEED certified.

    The apartments — studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units — are filled with light, thanks to the oversized windows. With wide-plank wood flooring, 9-foot to 11-foot ceilings, and open floor plans, these apartments feel roomier than most rentals. Stacking Bosch washer and dryer units are featured in most, and some have private outdoor space.

    And it’s also convenient to Manhattan: The A, B,C, G, M, Q, R and 2, 4 and 5 are nearby and several Citi Bike stations are a short walk away.
