[QUOTE]The 23-story rental building at 626 Flatbush Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens has revealed its starting prices just days before rentals in the building are due to hit the market. Base rents for the tower, henceforth known as The Parkline, were revealed in an email sent out to stoke renter interest (h/t Q at Parkside.) To the shock and awe of approximately no one, the rents are higher than at least some folks anticipated.
The Marvel Architects-designed tower in low-lying Prospect-Lefferts Gardens gained infamy in the early days of its conception for aspiring to become the tallest building in the neighborhood (It succeeded.) The least expensive rentals among them will start at $2,123/month for a studio and $2,584/month for a one-bedroom. Two-bedroom rentals will start at $3,553/month with three-bedrooms asking from $4,430/month. It should be noted that these prices include one month of free rent on a 13-month lease, at least.
Given its Park Slope-y prices it should be expected that the building comes with amenities to spare, and it does not disappoint. The Parkline will offer an abundance of storage for strollers, bicycles, and anything else residents may have laying around, as well as a penthouse lounge with an accompanying roof terrace for residents.
If unobstructed, 23-story penthouse views of Prospect Park, which sits just one block away, get old, then there’s a “bridge terrace” on the second floor. Other amenities include a private catering kitchen, dining room, gym, yoga room, children’s playroom, theater, on-site parking, courtyard, and a pet grooming cellar (because of course.)
The Parkline’s rental launch signals the beginning of the end of the long, fraught development history at the site. A little sampling: foes of the development staged a rally against its construction that lead to a temporary restraining order on the site against developer Hudson Companies issued in June 2014. The developer halted work on the building until the following June when it was resumed, and the building eventually topped out.
Rentals are expected to hit this market this Friday, so stay tuned for addition details.[/QUOTE]
