500 Sterling is an extraordinary new rental development on the burgeoning border of Prospect Heights and Crown Heights – Brooklyn’s newest flourishing neighborhood. The seven-story, 77-home residential building generously pairs studios to two-bedrooms with modern design and custom touches.
Developed by Adam America Real Estate and Horizon Group, 500 Sterling, which just launched leasing, boasts an array of amenities, including a fully equipped windowed gym, parking, part-time doorman, package room, private and bicycle storage and live-in superintendent.
Residents are greeted by 500 Sterling’s dramatic double-height lobby, while all homes contain premium kitchens finished in limed oak wall cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, limestone backsplashes with appliances by Fisher & Paykel and KitchenAid. Every unit including studios has a washer/dryer.
For Eliza Hartley, a former Upper East Sider whose apartment hunt took her from Brooklyn Heights to Crown Heights, settling on 500 Sterling was a simple decision. “While searching all over Brooklyn, mostly along the 2 and 5 subway lines, 500 Sterling’s beautiful amenities, lobby and apartments instantly grabbed my attention,” she said.
Open-air spaces are plentiful at 500 Sterling, with almost every unit offering expansive private outdoor space, and a roof deck complete with a misting wall, outdoor movie projector, lounging areas and barbecuing stations, all immensely popular in the summer months.
“I’m definitely excited to spend time on the roof deck, which has some really incredible views of the city,” said Hartley. “The Crown Heights/Prospect Heights neighborhood has some great coffee shops and bars that will be perfect for getting my schoolwork done and spending time with friends.”
Located in the heart of Brooklyn’s newest must-live neighborhood, 500 Sterling is just a stone’s throw from a multitude of popular eateries, gourmet markets, shopping and nightlife. Residents enjoy convenient access to public transportation, including the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains, which are located just three blocks south.
