Rental Building News and Offers

56-box-street Leasing has launched for a new 20-unit rental building at 56 Box Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. (Image via Nooklyn.com)
On the northern edge of Greenpoint just one block inland from Newton Creek is Box Street, a former industrial two-block stretch that is undergoing a transformation to a modern residential block. Joining the area is a new 6-story rental building at 56 Box Street, which is wrapping up construction and has launched leasing for move-ins starting in August.

Apartments have flexible layouts that can accommodate up to three bedrooms, though some rooms are small and might serve better as a home office. Listings show 1-bedrooms start at $2,650/month with flex layouts at $2,677/month, and 2-bedrooms start at $3,300/month with flex layouts starting at $3,600/month. They advertise 1-year leases with a net effective rate, indicating a rental concession is likely offered.

Listing photos show seemingly small layouts and the 20 units have an average size of 674 square feet, according to information filed with the Department of Buildings. Apartment have large windows, dark stained hardwood floors and private balconies. Open kitchens have stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, but little counter space, and homes come equipped with in-unit climate control and recessed lighting.

Amenities at the pet-friendly building include on-site laundry, a gym, bike storage and a virtual doorman. There is rooftop access and the direst views of the Manhattan skyline are impressive. The new building is between McGuinness Boulevard (below the Pulaski Bridge) and Manhattan Avenue, about 10 blocks from the G train at Greenpoint Avenue and also to the NYC Ferry Greenpoint Terminal at India Street.
