Every Friday 6sqft is rounding up five of the best rental deals showcased on CityRealty.com’s newly launched no-fee rentals page, a space where house hunters can find the best concessions being offered by landlords across the city.
No longer are New York’s most distinguished and architecturally avant-garde residential buildings limited to condos and co-ops. With more design-attuned renters on the market, developers are tapping the world’s best architects to make their rental properties stand out. A spate of renowned designers have hit the city’s architectural scene as of late, including of-the-moment starchitect Bjarke Ingels, long-time favorite Robert A.M. Stern, and Pritzker Prize winner Christian de Portzamparc.
While rental prices in these properties are usually higher than average, these buildings provide condo-level finishes, gracious and unique layouts, and all the amenities a renter could wish for. The slowing rental market and the influx of hundreds of new apartments have compelled landlords to offer some short-lived deals and incentives to attract lease-signers. See our list below of the five most stunning new rental buildings that are now offering rental concessions.

Two Trees Management Company has revealed an additional, close-up exterior rendering and a teaser website for their new rental development 60 Water Street in DUMBO, which is nearing completion. Designed by LEESER Architecture and Ismael Leyva Architects, the building will begin leasing in the coming weeks, though pricing and interior images have not yet been released. The façade stands out in the former-industrial neighborhood thanks to glass curtain walls with angled windows.
