In Bushwick, a rental development involving a pair of historic buildings, including a Victorian Gothic Church from the 1890s with a well-preserved exterior, has wrapped-up construction and is now leasing.

Known as The Saint Marks, the development includes 99 apartments with up to two bedrooms spread throughout three buildings - the brick church at the corner of Bushwick Ave & Jefferson Street, a 4-story former school building at 626 Bushwick Avenue, and a new 7-story elevator building at 618 Bushwick Avenue. Current listings range between $2,150 to $3,925 per month; there are duplexes available and some of the units have original church details, including exposed brick walls and pointed arch windows.

The project dates back to 2012 when permits were first filed for a residential conversion of the existing structures, but plans eventually came to include a new building, too. All are now integrated as a unified structure and offer shared amenities to residents including a video intercom, a roof deck, and several laundry rooms.

The units come in various layouts and most are loft-inspired with open concept living areas, large windows and high ceilings. They have hardwood floors throughout, recessed lighting and central air conditioning. Contemporary kitchens have pale veneer cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave. Bathrooms have stone tiled walls, with medicine cabinets and vanities that offer plenty of storage. Some units have private decks as well.

Cayuga Capital Management led the development, and Hustvedt Cutler Architects is listed on permits as the applicant of record. The church is the former St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church and according to Brownstoner, it previously had a spire the developer had to remove due to instability and zoning (the spire is visible in the rendering below). In early stages of the development, it was rumored the project would include condominiums, but switched to rentals at some point along the way. It received a tax exemption through the 421-a program and includes 20 affordable units for those making 60% of the neighborhood's area median income. An affordable housing lottery for the units took place earlier this year, and these apartments are priced starting from $822/month.

Residents of The Saint Marks have access to bike storage and onsite parking, and there is zip car on site. The location is near the J and M trains at the Myrtle Avenue stop, and is also close to convenient retailers and local dining destinations.
