Initial Renters at Ismael Leyva-Designed Building Have Moved Into Luxurious New Homes
With leasing moving at a fever pitch, Arias Park Slope is enjoying a busy summer highlighted by one of the most important milestones in its development program.
The first residents at the Ismael Leyva-designed 12-story building have moved into their luxurious new residences and begun their exciting upscale urban lifestyle at the collection of 95 rental homes in this historic Brooklyn neighborhood, according to developer The Iconic Group.
“The arrival of our first residents is significant for several reasons,” says Shloimy Reichman, a principal with The Iconic Group, the building’s developer. “It signifies Arias Park Slope has made the transition from a development site to an active, bustling and lived-in community. And with enthusiastic residents filling the building, prospective renters can experience the incredible lifestyle that separates Arias Park Slope from the competition.”
One of the first residents of Arias Park Slope were James and Elsa Morgan who relocated to the building when they needed more space with their first child on the way. The Morgans, who were living in another Brooklyn rental property, chose Arias Park Slope over several other new construction apartment complexes throughout the Borough because the building met all their criteria for a new home.
“With a baby months away, we don’t imagine we’ll be able to get away much in the near future so the fact there are three outdoor spaces and amenities such as a gym, residents lounge and additional public spaces was key,” Mr. Morgan indicates. “Inside the homes, we knew the washer/dryer in each apartment would provide added convenience and the fact the building was originally conceived as a for-sale condominium provided higher quality finishes, better sound proofing and more.
“When we heard they’d be a smoke-free building, something we’d be willing to pay a premium for, we were confident in our decision.”
Arias Park Slope is in the midst of one of the most successful leasing programs in today’s market with more than 60% of the residences in the building leased in just the first three months.
Located at 150 Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, Arias features a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom luxury residences — most with balconies and terraces. Monthly rents currently range from $2,800’s for one-bedroom homes and $3,800’s for two-bedroom residences.
Originally conceived as a condominium, the new building is notable for its multi-toned brick façade which has been inspired by neighboring brownstones and is punctuated by expansive windows, floating glass balconies, and a four-story glass curtain wall that optimizes natural light and captivating views of Prospect Park and the Manhattan skyline.
Residents will enjoy a 24-hour attended lobby, a state-of-the-art fitness center and Yoga room, and a resident’s lounge featuring a catering kitchen & bar, billiards, plasma TV and a fireplace. Considerable outdoor space is provided by both the Arias Courtyard which offers a putting green and seating area and the Arias Terrace which features an outdoor garden and seating area.
In addition, the Arias Club 360 boasts 360° rooftop views of Brooklyn and the Manhattan Skyline, lush landscaping with over 600 feet of grass, a soothing water feature, a massive fire pit with seating, a grill, bar & dining area, private cabanas, sunbeds and an outdoor shower.
Even more amenities include a pet spa, cold & dry grocery storage, available onsite automated parking, storage units, and complimentary bicycle racks.
