The building offers a vast abundance of amenities, including a full-time doorman, lobby lounge, private gym, screening room, residents lounge with rehearsal studios, pinball arcade, and billiards tables. Every apartment features hardwood floors, washer/dryer hookups, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and bathrooms with deep soaking tubs.

The property benefits from a 15-year 421a tax abatement and is currently in year three.
The property is conveniently located just blocks from the J and M trains and a short distance from the Morgan Avenue L train, connecting tenants to Manhattan in a short subway ride. Additionally, numerous bus lines service the area.

Palmese, who is exclusively marketing this property with Michael Amirkhanian.
