Leasing has officially commenced at 86 Fleet Place, the final residential tower of John Catsimatidis’ four-building development along Myrtle Avene, a site the billionaire first purchased from Long Island University in 1982. Dubbed by Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group as “The Eagle,” the 32-story 440-unit building sits in between Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene and offers studios for $2,044/month, one-bedrooms for $2,743/month and two-bedrooms starting at $4,050/month. As CityRealty learned, residences will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, custom oak cabinets and Brazilian stone countertops.
Residents at the Eagle will enjoy 34,000 square feet of amenities, like a fitness center with exercise studio, large sun deck with cabanas, an outdoor barbecue and herb garden and a private dog run. Plus, there will be a rooftop garden that will offer sweeping skyline views.

Dattner Architects designed the four-building Myrtle Avenue Development Master Plan, with the other three rentals opening over the last seven years. The Andrea, a mixed-use building at 218 Myrtle Avenue, came first and includes 95 units of workforce housing. The second building was the Giovanni at 81 Fleet Place, a mixed-use tower with 205 units. In 2016, the Margo at 180 Myrtle Avenue opened, which rises 15 floors and features 229 units.
