What makes Ideal Properties Group's newest Brooklyn community unique?

New York—Ideal Properties Group has begun leasing The Barn Lofts at 489 Third Ave., eight available rental units in Gowanus, N.Y.

“Very modern industrial steel, bolts and reclaimed wood finish in the common areas delight people looking for a rental home in the equally industrial Gowanus,” Justin Dower, Ideal Properties Group’s director of new development, told MHN. “The building’s roof deck offers unforgettable views of Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines. The property features very tasteful interior finishes and fixtures that are outside of the cookie-cutter norm found in most basic rental properties in the area.”

The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom units range in price from $3,600 to $3,800 per month and the three bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom units range in price from 4,500 to $4,700.

Each apartment is fully equipped with amenities including a microwave and dishwasher, quartz and stainless steel kitchen features, Frigidaire, Whirlpool and Summit appliances and a Daikin central heating and air conditioning system. The apartments also feature sliding glass doors in between the bedrooms/living, private balconies and walnut hardwood floors

The Barn Lofts features a fully furnished roof deck with full harbor and Manhattan skyline views along with a video intercom system, keypad entry and laundry onsite.

It sits two blocks from the F, G and R subway lines at 4th Ave, 6 blocks to the B, Q and E subway lines and Prospect Expressway, making it accessible from most parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

“In terms of neighborhood appeal, Gowanus just plain has it all,” Dower said. “The Bell House, Whole Foods, Crop to Cup Coffee, the new Surfish installation from former Chopped winner Miguel Aguilar, Luceys Lounge, Fletcher’s BBQ, Four and Twenty Blackbirds and Morbid Anatomy—there is more cultural and high-end F&B to be found locally than one could shake a stick at.”

And all that in what Dower called a fantastic setting of manufacturing times long gone, in a neighborhood quite a few Brooklynites find inspiring—inspiring for art, life and everything in between.
