Myrtle, 531 Myrtle Avenue: Review and Ratings

at The corner of Steuben Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 531 Myrtle Avenue by Carter Horsley

This handsome, 5-story rental apartment building at 529-531 Myrtle Avenue at the corner of Steuben Street in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn was erected in 2016 by Greystone Development.

It has 29 apartments and was designed by AB Architekten.

Greystone acquired the site in 2014 from the Rabsky Group, which is headed by Simon Dushinsky and which planned to replace a White Castle restaurant on the site with a residential building designed by Karl Fisher.

Greystone has also developed a nearby site at 100 Steuben Street with an 8-story rental building with 39 apartments.  Both buildings have gray metal panel façades and the Steuben Street project incorporates two brick townhouses.

The Myrtle Avenue building includes about 6,000 square feet of retail space.

Bottom Line

These two “modern” rental apartment buildings are close to Pratt Institute in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. 


The building has large windows, several with dark, louvered sections, and some corner windows.  Its façade is closely related to that at 100 Steuben Street.


The building has a roof terrace, a courtyard, a fitness center and storage space for three bicycles on each residential floor.


Apartment C on the 2nd through the 5th floor is a corner two-bedroom unit with a 16-foot-long living/dining room with an open kitchen.

Apartment 2G is a one-bedroom unit with a living/dining room with an open kitchen and a long private terrace.

Apartment 2M is a studio unit with a 16-foot-long living/dining room with an open kitchen and an 11-foot-square terrace.
