I was considering renting in this building, but I'm wondering if it's worth to pay $2,800 for a 1-bedroom in a building that has many low income apartments and with shared laundry room and amenities. Anybody has moved there and can share his experience?
Price seems right, but you need to be aware that you are quite far from the L (maybe 15 minute walk) and shopping, etc. Really depends what you are looking for. It would not be my first choice in Bburg because of the location.
Yes, subway is a bit far. Have you considered that you need to share the few amenities with the low-income apartments, including the small gym, a laundry room in the basement and the part time dorman? I'm considering paying few dollars more and renting in real luxury building like Edge, Nortshide Piers or 80 Metropolitan.
I visited 15 Dunham, but I wanna to go back after the affordable units are occupied to see how crowded is the building.
Not sure what the correlation between income level and amenity use is. If over-usage of amenities is a consideration I would worry more about the Edge, which is like a frat in the summer. And luxury units have washer/driers in unit.
Is there a reason you are only looking along the waterfront? Maybe you should indicate what you want in a building and what you want near you? Bburg is huge and there are lots of different types of places. Along the water is extremely and ever more gentrifying.
Of those listed I would choose 80 Met.
Well,I don't consider affordable developments attractive if I have to pay the same rents of luxury buildings, especially if the few amenities are shared. Thank you for your feedback, yes I like the waterfront despite the gentrification, I feel that I'm in the city but without the chaos of Manhattan.On weekdays the waterfront is very quiet.
Fair enough, waterfront is very nice. There is also a new rental next to northern piers ( or whatever it is called). Also loads of places near te park. I would choose any of these over the places further down kent. Good luck!
the edge also has lottery apartments in it. in fact a felon was just charged for a hit and run and turns out.... he lived in the edge.
everyone at dunham seems normal, I live here.
Thanks, but there are no low or middle income apartment at Edge or Northside Piers Condominiums. you are probably refering to the affordable housing built next door by the same developer. They have separated entrances,different addresses and no amenities are shared. Lottery process for Dunham will be completed soon, I'm curious to see if the building changes once 100% occupancy is reached.
