NEW YORK, NY – October 27, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The Marketing Directors, Inc. continues to expand their impressive leasing portfolio with their second Brooklyn assignment this year: Midwood Investment & Development’s newest luxury rental development at 285 Broadway, located just steps from the Marcy Avenue J/M subway station in the borough’s ever-gentrifying Williamsburg neighborhood.
Designed in partnership by dream team Goldstein Hill & West Architects & MA Architecture, 285 Broadway will offer 80-plus residences and an impressive amenity menu, including a spectacular two-story lobby with doorman service, a state-of-the-art fitness center, residents’ lounge, dining room with catering kitchen, pet spa, game room, above-ground onsite parking, and two sprawling outdoor areas that will feature an herb garden, barbeque areas, a Central Park-inspired lawn, sunbathing areas, and more. Inside, an extraordinary mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom residences will offer an exceptional interior finish package and panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River, and Brooklyn.
“This will be a high-end, luxury rental offering with a unique mix of indoor and outdoor lifestyle amenities,” notes Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, Inc. “Its location in Williamsburg — where fashion, food, art and music form the fabric of one of New York City’s ‘coolest’ neighborhoods — will be a magnet for residents looking to enjoy this eclectic, post-industrial neighborhood.”
The new Brooklyn assignment follows The Marketing Directors’ successful efforts at Arias in Park Slope where the firm has leased more than 90% of the 95-home rental building in just five months. Developed by the Iconic Group, the Ismael Leyva-designed 12-story building has paved the way for the revitalization of the neighborhood’s 4th Avenue corridor. The building features studios, one- and two-bedroom residences and a host of upscale indoor and outdoor amenities.
