The seven-story, 229-unit rental by Mack Real Estate Capital Group and and Urban Development Partners has a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. SLCE Architects designed the red brick facade to fit in with the area’s iconic warehouses, while Williamsburg-based cl-oth interiors did the breezy insides. The building, formerly home to the Western Carpet Company, will also have retail space.
Some of the homes will sport private terraces. Amenities include a landscaped common roof deck with Williamsburg Bridge views, a two-level gym, indoor basketball court, billiard room, a lower courtyard with a waterfall and a fully landscaped upper courtyard with a bocce ball court. That’s over 15,000 square feet of private indoor and outdoor amenities, according to the official site, which also tells us, “Consider the standards you have known for city living eclipsed.”
Aptsandlofts.com is marketing and leasing the property. “The concept behind 50 North 5th Street was to elevate the living experience for residents while they are at home to a level they typically engage in while out socializing throughout New York City,” Aptsandlofts.com’s David Maundrell said in a statement, adding that the building “offers a refreshed lifestyle with very special community spaces.”
Well, consider us eclipsed, elevated and refreshed. Rendering of the bocce ball courtyard action below:
