Kitchen and living room in one-bedroom apartment
If you haven’t been to Fort Greene lately, you should check it out — it’s abuzz with activity. Brooklyn’s coolest neighborhood is not only transforming into a great place to live but also borders such other diverse neighborhoods as Downtown Brooklyn and Dumbo.
81 Fleet Place, “The Giovanni,” is a new sixteen-story building located on the cusp of Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn, and is the second of four buildings being developed by John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group along Myrtle Avenue. The 205 market-rate rentals are a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

The Giovanni features a full range of amenities, including a resident lounge, media and game room, a fitness center with yoga studio, a 24-hour concierge, and a children’s playroom. An extensive landscaped terrace on the third floor provides a shared outdoor space for all residents, and many of the units have their own private balconies and terraces.

Apartments have dramatic views, and large windows let the sunshine into every home. The Giovanni will have underground parking, and the ground floor has been reserved for retail, adding neighborhood convenience to the building’s other amenities.

Living at The Giovanni will give residents the added benefit of living at the crossroads of two exciting and diverse neighborhoods: Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn. The building is minutes away from a range of transit options, including the A/C, B/F, G, N/Q/R, 2/3, and 4/5 subway lines.

Just outside The Giovanni’s front door is Fort Greene Park, BAM, the Brooklyn Museum, and the shops and restaurants of Downtown Brooklyn, Myrtle Avenue, and Fort Greene. And a short walk away is that most iconic of Brooklyn sights, the Brooklyn Bridge.
