Model apartment at The Lois in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Model apartment at The Lois in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens
With home being more important than ever, coupled with the diminished importance of being close to the subway or your office, New York City landlords are pressured to provide comfortable, higher-end product to justify the premium of living within the metropolitan area. While many new development condos already come with many pampering bells-and-whistles that make living and working in your apartment nearly blissful, the city's notoriously unpleasant and expensive rental market has much room to grow. However, the latest batch of new rental buildings now offer many of the conveniences condo-buyers have grown accustomed to - and with a market downturn upon us, this fall and winter may be a renter's best chance to scoop up a deal in a full-service luxury building at an approachable prices. Below is a list of some recent launches throughout the metro area.
