Talk about a soft Landing!
Locals with deep pockets can soon rent dozens of newly built waterfront apartments in Brooklyn Bridge Park, now that the developers of Pier 6’s two controversial towers are putting the finishing touches on their shorter high-rise, new renderings of which they released on Wednesday.
The 15-story tower at 15 Bridge Park Drive, which the builders dubbed The Landing, boasts a total of 140 units, 100 of which are be so-called affordable rentals doled out via the city’s housing lottery based on three income-based affordability tiers, which eligible locals could apply for through Nov. 9.
But leasing for the dozens of other market-rate units inside — which include studios starting at $3,100-per month, along with one-to-three-bedroom units with proportionately higher rents — is expected to start next month, according to reps from the building’s broker MNS, who said residents can move in shortly afterward.
The high-rise — designed by architects with ODA New York, the firm that also dreamt up the 28-story condo-filled Quay Tower next door — features a lobby staffed by a part-time doorman, a fitness center with a yoga studio, a children’s playroom, and indoor and outdoor rooftop lounges.
Residents of the swanky Quay Tower — where developers RAL Development Services and Oliver’s Realty Group recently received a record-breaking offer of more than $20 million for a penthouse — are slated to move in by next summer, once workers complete final touches to the property, according to a rep.
The nearly complete towers are the end result of a years-long legal battle that leaders of civic group the Brooklyn Heights Association waged against the park and the developers, which ended back in February when a judge ruled the buildings could legally rise in the green space — months after contractors broke ground.
