Construction has wrapped up at Jonathan Rose Companies and Bedrock LLC’s The Pierrepont, a two tower residential rental development at 146 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights. Designed by Marvel Architects, the two 20-story towers feature a brick and punch window façade with a two-story connecting element at the base. Fogarty Finger led the interior design for the development’s residences and extensive amenities package. Rental units range in size from one to three-bedrooms and feature large windows, kitchens with oversized islands, and bathrooms with double vanities and walk-in showers. Residents have access to a collection of amenities that include a fitness center, yoga room, meditation room, entertainment lounge, dining room with catering kitchen, children’s interactive playroom and outdoor play area, pet spa, courtyard, zen garden, and rooftop terrace.

The buzzed-about Pierrepont is located in coveted Brooklyn Heights and is the height of luxury apartment living. It is making waves in the Brooklyn real estate market, especially since it now holds the most expensive rental in the borough. Someone can experience ultimate sophistication at this full-floor 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse asking $17,900/month.

Start with location, location, location. Brooklyn Heights was literally the city’s first designated historic district, with over 600 historic buildings. Named after the area’s first noted citizen and boasting two 20-story towers, his namesake development would make old Hezekiah Pierrepont proud. Designed to exceed all ecological and personal expectations, The Pierrepont promotes healthy living, resource conservation, energy efficiency, and offers wellness amenities like a meditation room, yoga and training room and private zen garden.

Renting the penthouse will give a tenant everything they didn’t even know they needed or wanted. Dreamy common spaces include a rooftop terrace, glass-enclosed Zen garden and resident library designed for reading and relaxing. Kids or grandkids will be enthralled by the interactive children’s playroom, outdoor children’s play area, and courtyard with ping pong tables. There are even learning programs for kids, which will come in handy during summer months. Have pets? There’s a pet spa. Have equipment? There’s stroller and bike storage. Have a desire for ultimate service? The 24-hour attended lobby and concierge service is always there.

The Pierrepont has it all, including the priciest penthouse for rent in all of Brooklyn.

The Pierrepont, family-oriented rental apartment building in the heart of coveted Brooklyn Heights, has just listed a full-floor 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom residence for $17,900 per month. It is the most expensive rental currently on the market at a rental building in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn’s most expensive rental residence has a private corridor and dedicated storage and features expansive windows allowing abundant natural light, generous closets and elegant finishes by acclaimed design firm Fogarty Finger. The kitchens are fully equipped with environmentally friendly stainless-steel appliances, solid-surface counters with ceramic tile backsplashes and oversized islands. Expansive four-fixture master baths feature unexpected luxuries like large walk-in showers and spacious double vanities. Each unit also includes a vented washing machine and dryer, and some have private outdoor terraces.

Not only does space rival some Manhattan apartments with epic views, but the building was designed to meet and exceed Enterprise Green Communities – meaning it’s helping to promote healthy living, resource conservation, and energy efficiency. Additionally, the building offers amenities that further promote wellness including a meditation room, yoga and training room, and a private zen garden.

The building also recently celebrated its 80 percent leasing milestone further showcasing the increasing demand for a full-service building in a sought-after brownstone neighborhood.

Nearly a year after leasing launched at The Pierrepont, the mixed-use Brooklyn Heights rental has debuted a collection of eight full-floor penthouse residences with private corridors and dedicated storage. By virtue of their location near the top of the dapper two-tower development designed by Marvel Architects, the expansive windows fill the homes with abundant natural light and sweeping views of the East River and iconic Manhattan skyline. Spacious islands in the thoughtfully laid out kitchens allow for generous storage and prep space, and four-fixture master baths are outfitted with luxuries like walk-in showers and double vanities.

Like all units at The Pierrepont, the penthouses’ interiors feature hardwood floors, high-end finishes, and energy-efficient climate control. In kitchens, there are top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, stone countertops and ceramic tile backslashes. Each unit comes with a washer/dryer, and select homes have private outdoor space.

The Pierrepont’s residents are welcomed home with a contemporary entrance marquee, glass-enclosed Zen garden, and stylish, 24-hour attended lobby. A resident manager is on-site to keep things running smoothly, and amenities are spread throughout the building. The lower level houses an entertainment lounge, a dining room and catering kitchen, a pet spa, a bike room, and a fully equipped fitness center with a yoga/training studio and meditation room. Between the courtyard with Ping-Pong tables and the children’s indoor/outdoor play area, home to carefully curated music, art, and yoga programming, The Pierrepont’s second floor is for fun. A rooftop terrace with barbecue grills looks out on sweeping city and river views.

An affordable lottery for 23 units took place last winter, and market-rate units are approximately 80 percent leased. Remaining availabilities range from $4,707/month for one-bedrooms to $14,571/month for a three-bedroom. Moreover, one of the penthouses is on the market for $17,900/month, making it one of the most expensive Brooklyn rentals on the market. The Pierrepont took shape in a bustling section of Brooklyn. About a mile away, its developer Jonathan Rose Companies was also at the helm of recently constructed Downtown Brooklyn rental Caesura. The nearby, newly constructed 19-story rental at 153 Remsen Street launched its 60-unit collection in 2017, and its few available listings start at $5,844/month for a two-bedroom. On the condo side, the limestone facade is nearly finished at the Flatiron-esque One Clinton, located just around the corner. Its listings start at $1.985 million for a two-bedroom.

With a baby and two grandparents in the mix, a couple look for a place that can accommodate everyone. Here’s where they landed.

In 2014, Julia Cox moved into a two-bedroom rental with a balcony in Brooklyn Heights. The neighborhood reminded her of her native Philadelphia, she said, “with lower-scale buildings and older architecture.”

She thought the apartment — with a rent in the low $4,000s — might feel extravagant for a person living alone, but as it turned out, that wouldn’t be for long. A month later she met Tom Limongello, who was living in a Murray Hill bachelor pad. He joined her in the two-bedroom; the couple married soon after, and she took her husband’s last name.

As they awaited the birth of their daughter, they pondered another kind of arrangement: a multigenerational household, where Mrs. Limongello’s parents could live with them part-time.

The Limongellos began the hunt for a home with room for everyone, but it was hard to find something suitable.

“My favorite pastime is randomly scrolling through StreetEasy and Zillow, and I did that for a whole year,” said Mrs. Limongello, 36, who manages construction for a real estate developer. What she found, though, was “while the exteriors are beautiful, the interiors are often old and dated.”

Their aim was to stay in or near Brooklyn Heights. For three bedrooms and two bathrooms, ideally with private outdoor space and a washer-dryer, their budget started at around $8,000.

Early on, they decided against a duplex in a charming two-family brick row house. “It was super old-school, and you can imagine they had heating and other types of issues,” said Mr. Limongello, 42, a product manager for an advertising technology company.

When their daughter, Livia, started crawling, the two-bedroom began to feel cramped. Her room was “the size of a large walk-in closet in a suburban home,” Mrs. Limongello said. Mr. Limongello worried that he would bump the baby in the tight space.

Mrs. Limongello’s parents, Malcolm and Rosalie Cox, live near their other daughter’s family, outside of Philadelphia, but planned to spend about a third of their time in Brooklyn and contribute about a third of the rent.
