Rental Building News and Offers

In parts of Manhattan, many of the newest rental buildings offer the best health & wellness amenities around. Let’s not forget about the buildings that also offer a slew of pet amenities, too. On Roosevelt Island, a narrow piece of land that lies in the East River between Manhattan and Queens, some of the best amenities are open to all like the five miles of bike and walking paths, waterfront promenades, and a two-acre ecological park with indigenous plants.

At a building known as The Octagon, residents are also granted access to the complexes six open air tennis courts, an outdoor pool and a 2,200-square-foot fitness center, too. The building even has a small gallery beloved by local artists, but many are unhappy with the recent plans to turn it into a leasing office.

The upscale rental property was completed in 2006 and rises to 14 floors. One if its key features is the 1841-built rotunda which was part of the original hospital that once occupied the land. The hospital is gone and much of the land sat unused for decades, but the property now offers 500 rental residences in a variety of layouts. It is owned and managed by Bozzuto and there are many no fee listings for prospective renters to explore; studios are from $2,200/month, 1 beds from $2,528/month, 2 beds from $4,509/month and 3 beds from $5,521/month.

The Octagon is on the northern edge of the island at 888 Main Street and offers residents express bus service to the subway and tram. While many see Roosevelt Island as an escape from the city, the convenience to Midtown Manhattan is also something residents appreciate. Homes feature hardwood flors and floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular city views. Kitchens are equipped with granite countertops, cherry-finished cabinetry, and a stainless steel appliance package including a dishwasher, microwaves, and refrigerator with an ice cube maker. Many homes with larger layouts have a convenient in-unit washer/dryer. Select units have spacious walk-in closets and private outdoor space. Pets are permitted.
