2016 is upon us, and as they say: “New year, new you”, and maybe a new apartment too? We’ve scoured Brooklyn Heights for the choicest rental apartment buildings in the area, and it’s this classic charm that makes it one of the most popular neighborhoods in the borough.
This new construction is actually a merger of two buildings: a landmarked building on Middagh Street, and another on Poplar Street. Either way, its refined apartments take the loft aesthetic — exposed beams, high ceilings, open floor plans — and adapts it into totally new interiors. Great amenities include an attended lobby, fitness center, and bicycle storage. Like the other buildings in this list, it’s just steps away from Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River waterfront.
The appropriately named Court House enjoys a great location on the end of Court Street, right at the intersection of Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn. This new construction condominium is pretty well-designed with some seriously context-aware architecture. Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows boast marvelous views of the Downtown Manhattan skyline and East River.
If there’s any neighborhood that really leans into the “boutique” descriptor, it’s Brooklyn; the neighborhood is pretty well known for its independent culture and carefully curated restaurants and shops. To that same end, Love Lane Mews is a boutique luxury conversion with just a handful of apartments for the ultimate in privacy. Updated apartments showcase pre-war loft details, such as high, beamed ceilings, massive, gridded windows, and gracious floor plans.
Eagle Warehouse splits the difference between Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo. Right on the cusp of either, it possess a great address just steps from some of the borough’s best dining, bars, boutiques, and venues. This pre-war building boasts a distinctive entrance under the “Eagle Warehouse & Storage Co.” marquee.
