John Catsimatidis’ Big Apple Group has kicked-off leasing for The Giovanni, the latest addition to a quartet of rental buildings ushering in more than 1,000 units along a once underutilized section of Myrtle Avenue. Located at 81 Fleet Place within the crossroads of bucolic Fort Greene and thriving Downtown Brooklyn, the recently finished 15-floor building is comprised of 205 no-fee apartments with retail space along its lower levels.
Like its sister buildings, the Andrea and the Margo, Dattner is the building’s architect and the firm has configured a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, many featuring balconies or roof terraces.
For a limited time, the marketing team is offering renters one month free on new leases. CityRealty currently lists 23 apartments available, ranging from studios with net effective rents (NER) starting at $2,379/month upwards to a spacious one-bedroom unit on the 14th floor listed at a NER of $4,121/month.
Top-floor apartments provide dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline and the East River bridges, and corner units are outfitted with large floor-to-ceiling windows. Floors are sheathed in dark maple and open kitchens are equipped with Caesarstone countertops, a four-piece stainless steel appliance package, and blue glass tiled back-splash. Bathrooms are clad in white tile and have Toto, Grohe and Kohler fixtures. Homes also have large closets and a Bosch washer and dryer.
Building amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, 2,000 square-foot fitness center, yoga/personal training studio, a screening room, a children’s playroom, bicycle storage, tenant storage, on-site parking and a landscaped and furnished third floor deck with barbecue area.
The Giovanni is pet friendly and is situated steps away from doggy-paradise, Fort Greene Park. The DeKalb Avenue subway station serving the B-D-N-Q-R trains is nearby and the building is close to the Barclays Center, Fulton Mall, Metrotech, Atlantic Center Mall, the Farmers Market at Washington Park, BAM and the Fulton Street Mall.
