Family Flat: 2br Rental in LEED Certified Building for $4,195

August 26, 2010

Open floor plan

I’m not sure what to make of this two-bedroom modern apartment in Fort Greene. On one hand, I can’t stop looking and reading about its jaw dropping amenities: private terrace with views of the city, open kitchen with brand new Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances,  maple flooring, tons of closets and an on-site yoga studio. Definitely luxury living at its best (or worst depending on who you ask) whose open floor plan includes tons of space for a medium-sized family. Being five minutes away from Fort Greene Park and area restaurants and boutiques isn’t too bad either.
