Large swaths of Brooklyn are no stranger to luxury developments at this point. But now some rather unlike neighborhoods are getting in on the action.

In an industrial section of Borough Park the Hamilton is rising. It’s a 92-unit luxury rental from Halcyon Management Group.

The five-story, full-block building is designed by architect Karl Fischer and the interior designer Hadas Metzler. It is rising on the site of a former roller-skating rink and will have studios to three-bedrooms, according to the New York Times.

Amenties include Italian porcelain tiles and built-in stereo speakers in the bathrooms, kitchens designed for entertaining – meaning stoves are built center island so hosts can cook while facing their guests.

There is also a first-floor game room, and a1,000-square-foot lounge that can serve as co-working space for residents, Yoel Sabel, the senior project manager of Halcyon, told the Times.

The project cost $25 million and rents start at $1,800 for studios and $2,300 for one-bedrooms. [NYT]Christopher Cameron
