Developer Douglas C. Steiner has unveiled plans for a new 50-story apartment building he promises will be “the best in Brooklyn.”
Located at 333 Schermerhorn Street, at the intersection of Third Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, The Hub will have 740 rental units as well as retail space and parking for over 250 vehicles.
A groundbreaking is slated for the Fourth Quarter of 2012.
“This will be the best rental building in Brooklyn,” said Steiner, chairman of development company Steiner NYC who also built Steiner Studios at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
“We love this location. We’re a short block or two from 12 subway lines and the LIRR. We’ll have spectacular views, great layouts and an iconic presence on the skyline. And we’re at the hub of so many great Brooklyn neighborhoods.”
The Hub, designed by Dattner Architects and Goldstein, Hill and West Architects, will have “the largest amenity package of any rental building in Brooklyn,” according to a press release from Steiner.
Highlights include a 24-hour concierge, a landscaped common outdoor terrace with sundeck, a fitness center, yoga studio, locker rooms, a dog run, and a grilling terrace. Residents will enjoy multiple lounges and bike storage for every unit.
Each residence will be pre-wired for cable, phone and high-speed internet connections. The Hub is a proposed 80/20 project that will offer approximately 144 affordable rental units.
Led by the father-son team of David and Douglas Steiner, Steiner NYC is a privately held development firm that traces its roots to 1907.
Current projects include 58 and 80 Metropolitan, a two-phase, market rate condominium project of 173 units comprising a full city block in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and 25 Washington Avenue, an approximately 285,000 s/f expansion at Steiner Studios, to include additional stages, support and post-production space.
