New Park Slope Luxury Rental Boasts Concierge Service and $2,100 Studios
PARK SLOPE — White-glove service is coming to a neighborhood once better known for calloused hands.
Residents in a new luxury apartment building at 267 Sixth St. — between once-gritty Park Slope and the former manufacturing hub Gowanus — will have a concierge at their beck and call to make dinner reservations, snag tickets to Barclays Center and perform other life-sweetening tasks.
The 104-unit, 12-story building dubbed Landmark Park Slope will open in August. Rents will start at $2,100 for a studio, $2,800 for a one-bedroom and $3,700 for a two-bedroom.
The sleek tower, designed by architect Karl Fischer, will feature a host of "hotel style amenities," according to a statement from developer Naftali Group and marketer Aptsandlofts.com.
Tenants can look forward to a full-time doorman and a roof deck where they can grill, lounge in cabanas and take in 360-degree views of New York Harbor and the Manhattan skyline.
Other features include floor-to-ceiling windows, a fitness room, bike storage and 43 parking spaces.
The concierge service will be provided by the firm Abigail Michaels and will be free for the first year, said Dave Maundrell, president of Aptsandlofts. He said the service makes sense in a building where many tenants are likely to be young, social and on-the-go.
“It really sets us apart in terms of services," Maundrell said. "It’s great to pick up the phone and call and say, 'Can you send a dog walker to walk my dog so I can stay in the city?' It’s a nice little perk."
Abigail Michaels handles about 200 buildings in Manhattan and currently another building in Brooklyn — the Love Lane Mews condos in Brooklyn Heights, said Abbie Newman, a principal with the company.
Brooklyn residents are starting to demand "the same very, very high-end level of service that anyone in Manhattan would want," Newman said.
"They want all the cush that Manhattanites have access to. They want the handheld feeling of service. They want to know that somebody is there for whatever they possibly desire or require living in a luxury building."
The sleek Landmark Park Slope building is one of several new residential developments that have sprung up along Fourth Avenue. A 51-unit building with $2,475 studios opened recently on Eighth Street, and locals say plans are underway for another new apartment building on Fourth Avenue and 11th Street.
There is 3,556 square feet of retail space in two units on the ground floor of Landmark Park Slope, one on the corner of Sixth Street and Fourth Avenue and one on Fourth Avenue. Officials with Naftali Group said they've gotten inquiries about the spaces, which will rent for about $60 to $65 per square foot, but haven't signed tenants yet.
