CROWN HEIGHTS — After two years of construction, apartments in the eight-story building at the corner of Eastern Parkway and Franklin Avenue will start renting in July, a leasing agent for the building said.

Studio apartments at 341 Eastern Parkway, or 341EPW, will start at $2,200, according to aptsandlofts.com, which is handling leasing. One-bedrooms will set renters back at least $2,700 per month, and two-bedrooms are priced starting at $3,700 per month. 

A handful of the building’s 63 units are “penthouse duplexes,” which will run at least $3,800 per month. News of the rental prices was first reported by Curbed.

Interest in the building from developer and owner Bluejay Management "has been simply staggering," aptsandlofts.com president David Maundrell said.

“That’s what you get when you combine contextual architecture with direct access to Manhattan via four subway lines at your front door,” he said, calling the building’s immediate neighborhood “one the most exciting areas of Brooklyn.”

The white brick building was designed by Meshberg Group and will feature a fitness center, landscaped roof deck, part-time doorman, on-site parking and laundry machines in every unit.

Renderings of the units’ interiors show hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and open living rooms and kitchens. The bathrooms are minimalist in design, with large tiles.

A Capital One Bank branch will open on the building's ground floor in 3,000 square feet of space, as Crain’s New York reported in March. Another 4,500-square-feet of commercial space is available next to the bank, the report said, but no tenant has been announced.

Though the idea for 341EPW has reportedly been the works since 2007, construction began in 2012 after Bluejay Management bought the then-vacant lot at the Eastern Parkway corner for $8.2 million, property documents show.
