About six months after developers of One Boerum Place pivoted from condominiums to high-end rentals, new images were released this month that show off the condo-quality interiors. Developed by Avery Hall with SLCE as the architect of record, One Boerum Place rises 22 stories, contains 138 total rentals, and boasts a luxury amenity package. 6sqft got an exclusive first look at the tower’s model unit, a $15,000/month four-bedroom designed by Gachot Studios and decked out by Brooklyn-based Cl-oth.

Avery Hall picked up the site for $77 million in 2016 and broke ground on the project in 2019. In May, in response to market conditions and the impact the pandemic had on luxury condos, the developer announced One Boerum Place would change to high-end rentals instead, priced from $4,750/month for a one-bedroom.
Preleasing kicked off in May and in August, a $27,000/month four-bedroom penthouse was leased at One Boerum Place, setting a record for the most expensive rental in Brooklyn. The building is now 75 percent leased, according to a spokesperson for the project.
“We thought: Let’s take a gamble. There are renters out there with nowhere to go,” Avi Fisher of Avery Hall told Crain’s in an interview following the record-breaking lease. “It looks like our thesis was right.”
AD 100 design firm Gachot Studios handled the building’s interiors, giving the rentals condo-quality finishes and design elements like 10-foot ceilings, white oak flooring, and sound-insulated panoramic windows. Kitchens feature custom-wood cabinetry, countertops with polished nickel, and high-end integrated appliances.
One Boerum Place has 96 market-rate one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, with more than half of them offering private outdoor space in the form of terraces and covered loggias. A housing lottery opened in May for the building’s 42 middle-income units.
Staged by full-service interior design studio Cloth, the model residence is a sunny four-bedroom, three-bath on the 17th floor. Asking $15,200, the corner unit has a covered private terrace that overlooks Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Borough Hall.
Amenities include a 24/7 doorman, a two-story fitness center complete with Peloton bikes and a yoga room, indoor swimming pool, sauna, pet spa with grooming station, entertainment lounge, children’s playroom, a parking garage with electric car charging stations, and a storage room.

There’s also a rooftop park designed by Brook Landscape with an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a lounge with a fireplace, and a stargazing lawn.
