The Posthouse – A Modern Take on Classic Brooklyn
Located in historic Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, The Posthouse offers sophisticated rental residences that blend classic industrial-inspired design with 21-century convenience. This new 8-story building stands on the site of a former post office and is home to 143 apartments. With a location on one of the neighborhood’s main retail corridors, Myrtle Avenue, The Posthouse is surrounded by a variety of boutiques, bars and restaurants.
In addition, the renowned Pratt Institute is situated just south of The Posthouse. Founded in 1887, Pratt is one of the nation’s leading schools focused on the arts and architecture. The college is also notable for being one of the first in the country to admit students without regard to class, color, and gender – which it has done since its inception. Pratt is also home to its famous Sculpture Park. Open to all, this is the largest outdoor collection of contemporary sculpture in New York City.
However, The Posthouse offers more to residents than just a prime location. Completed in 2017, the building was developed by Madison Realty Capital. It features a distinctive façade of warm grey brick lined with traditional mullioned windows and contrasting all-glass sections at the entry and top floors. The end result is a modern interpretation of classic Brooklyn industrial architecture.
Inside, The Posthouse offers a collection of studio, one- and two-bedroom homes currently available for lease through Citi Habitats New Developments. The residences were artfully designed by Cl-oth Interiors, a noted design firm based out of Bushwick, Brooklyn.
All apartments include custom all-white designer kitchens, complete with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances by Blomberg, Bosch and Whirlpool. Caesarstone ‘Classico Collection’ quartz countertops in a deep ‘Raven’ color are the perfect contrast to the white cabinetry, and backsplashes are clad in Carrara marble.
Baths at The Posthouse also incorporate a timeless black and white color scheme and are accented by contemporary stainless-steel fixtures and dark grey hexagonal tile flooring. Walls feature white subway tile with contrasting black grout creating a striking modern look. Deep soaking tubs and apron sinks cradled by ebony-toned wood vanities are also key design components.
In addition, residences include natural wood flooring throughout, in-unit washer/dryers and individually-controlled heat and A/C. Select homes are also complete with private terraces.
Designed to help residents recharge and unwind, The Posthouse includes a comprehensive amenity package for residents. Perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing, the residents’ lounge is a plush retreat. The on-site fitness center is state-of-the-art and the landscaped roof deck is the perfect place to spend a lazy summer afternoon. This spectacular oasis also provides breathtaking city views of both Brooklyn rooftops and the imposing lower Manhattan skyline.
Clinton Hill is one of Brooklyn’s most architecturally-significant areas, with an eclectic mix of iconic Brooklyn brownstones, red brick townhouses and ornate Victorian mansions. With easy access to the G, A and C trains, all of New York City is easily accessible. Nevertheless, because of all the local community has to offer, residents at The Posthouse often find Clinton Hill hard to leave.
