A LOOK INSIDE THE COLORFUL, LIGHT-FILLED UNITS AT CITY POINT’S SECOND TOWER
Located at 10 City Point, the 440-unit, 48-story rental tower rises directly above the DeKalb Avenue subway station, the asymmetric window grid of its facade layered with color-blocked shapes on the lower levels. The building adds to the area’s increasingly Manhattan-level density of skyscrapers and has stunning views.
The feel inside is modern, streamlined and clean, with kitchens equipped with panelized Blomberg appliances, under-cabinet lighting, and ranges and convection ovens by Bertazzoni and Bosch. A “floating kitchen” design keeps all the appliances off the floor.
In the bathrooms, there are white quartz countertops, custom open shelving, taupe porcelain flooring and Kohler fixtures. Each unit is equipped with an integrated heating and cooling system, washer and dryer, and massive closets.
Many of the living areas include floor-to-ceiling windows, making the units bright and sun-filled, and all apartments have custom solar shades and oak wide-plank flooring.
The units’ generous closets add exponentially to the available storage space. The building also has more than 23,000 square feet of amenities, including a basketball court, gym, meeting room, two landscaped terraces, and a lounge that includes a pantry and communal kitchen for residents to cook in.
The clean white lines of the common areas and model units are warmed by colorful accent walls, patterns and texture in the form of reclaimed wood paneling and wallpapers from Brooklyn-based Flavor Paper.
Monthly rents start at $2,615 for studios, $3,100 for one-bedrooms and $5,350 for two-bedrooms. The development is entirely market rate, in contrast to the first City Tower structure, where 200 below-market units rent for as low as $500 a month.
Although the building is not yet finished, leasing launched in October, and move-ins started in January. Part of the building already has its certificate of occupancy, a rep told Brownstoner. Construction is expected to wrap in late May to early June, he said.
According to StreetEasy, 68 of the units have been rented, and there are eight active listings for units.
The residences at all three City Point towers are connected to the complex’s retail base. This will include the in-the-works DeKalb Market food hall, a subterranean cafeteria set to host Katz’s Delicatessen, ice creamery Ample Hills, and an array of other vendors. The complex will also house grocerTrader Joe’s, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Century21 and Target.
The residential tower is Manhattan-based developer Brodsky’s first foray into Brooklyn. Architect CookFox, whose other projects include 550 Vanderbilt Avenue in Pacific Park/Atlantic Yards, is designing.
The final City Point tower, to be developed by Extel, has not yet begun construction.
