Rental units in New York City’s first modular housing development are now leasing.

Units at the Stack, a seven-story housing development at 4857 Broadway in Manhattan’s Inwood neighborhood, include studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is exclusively handling the leasing for the 28 available units. The Stack was developed by Jeffrey Brown and Kimberly Frank and designed by GLUCK+. Rental prices start at $1,750, according to a release from Douglas Elliman.

The building, which is about 38,000 square feet, was constructed in Pennsylvania and then shipped to New York as 56 separate modules. The foundations and concrete first floor of the building were the only parts built on site. After the modules were stacked, the mechanical system was connected and an exterior facade was placed on property.

Some units have washers, dryers and outdoor space. All apartments include tenant-controlled heat, air conditioning and aluminum windows. Additional amenities include a virtual doorman, private tenant storage, bicycle storage, an on-site laundry room and a common outdoor landscaped terrace.

“As builders and developers, we are intrigued with this methodology and its application on a multitude of new projects,” developers Jeffrey Brown and Kimberly Frank said in a release. “And, while the construction is innovative, the completed building provides a well-designed, efficiently built, modern structure incorporating 28 beautiful, comfortable, light-filled homes.” – Claire Moses
