Brooklyn’s Fourth Avenue is getting yet another new rental building: Say hello to No. 223, located between Union and President streets, which recently began leasing. The development has just 63 apartments, a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedrooms that will average around 900 square feet. Daniel Goldner Architects designed the 13-story building, which is clad in red brick at street level to echo the existing architecture of the neighborhood, and yellow brick further up—it resembles the material used on the revamped Lyceum, in fact. MNS is handling leasing for the building, with rents beginning at $2,315/month (net effective) for a studio, and rising from there.

Situated near the Union Street MTA station, above Starbucks and next door to Blink fitness, this modern, 13-story building adds 63 meticulously designed rental units, from studios to two bedrooms, to this vibrant neighborhood.

Daniel Goldner Architects, an award-winning firm based in Chelsea, New York, envisioned this truly unique property, one that celebrates the existing red brick architecture in the neighborhood by incorporating the material into a contemporary context. This same consideration to detail is further demonstrated within the property.

Brooklyn’s Fourth Avenue is getting yet another new rental building: Say hello to No. 223, located between Union and President streets, which begins leasing this weekend.

Greystone Development, which is behind the project, has been working to bring a rental to the site since 2015, and until recently, also owned the Brooklyn Lyceum next door. The firm used air rights from the Lyceum to build bigger, but ultimately sold the landmarked building earlier this year for around $10 million.

Long Island City is changing at a rapid clip—so fast, in fact, that a 2017 study found that the once-industrial neighborhood has given rise to more new apartments since 2010 than any other neighborhood in the country. The exact number of incoming apartments is a little hard to pin down, and always changing, but with an eye to the neighborhood’s skyline, it’s impossible to deny that Long Island City is on fire.

While weekends in the Hudson Valley and Long Island are always a great choice, just getting there can be a pain; and so many New Yorkers don’t even realize that you don’t need to leave the city (or break the bank) to escape the city. City Island is the perfect location for a day-trip, weekend getaway, or permanent home away from the hustle and bustle typically associated with New York City. Known for its seafood restaurants, City Island sits along the Long Island Sound and boasts more than 30 restaurants, including big ones like the Lobster Box and smaller, more eclectic places like Artie’s Steak and Seafood, the City Island DinerBistro SK, and the Black Whale.

While most developers and companies are focused on luxury development in New York City, Thomas Ryan feels versatility in team ability and project location are the keys to Greystone Development’s success.

Ryan, who’s been working at Greystone Development since 1999, was recently promoted to the group’s CEO. He takes over for Jeff Simpson, who’s served as CEO since 2013 and is now moving on to create his own real estate investment firm.
