Brooklyn Riverside, the most recent residential development to come to fruition in the Brooklyn neighborhood, is geared for the lifestyle of young professionals.

More than half – 62 percent – of the 310 available units are one bedroom apartments.

Conveniently situated within six blocks of nearly 8,000 office workers, the goal of the complex is to bolster the demographic already present in the area, expressed Pollack Shores Development Manager Brian Oates

“We’re targeting the young professionals who work in the area,” Oates said. “We’ve seen the demographic shift and people want more one bedroom apartments.”

Walkability will be a significant factor for future residents. Brooklyn Riverside is located directly behind Brooklyn Station and not far from the nearly finished Unity Plaza.

“We encourage residents to leave their cars at home and just use public transportation or walk,” Oates said.

Parking will not be an issue for tenants of Brooklyn Riverside. There will be 76 tuck-under garages, 374 regular parking spaces on the premises, and parallel parking along Magnolia Street. The 450 spaces allot 29 more than the city’s required one-space-per-bed parking requirements.

Furthering the encouragement of pedestrian traffic, Brooklyn Station will offer bicycle storage rooms in each of the seven buildings. With limited parking in 5 Points, Park and King or the Shoppes of Avondale, cycling to those destinations may appeal to tenants of the area’s newest
urban housing development.

Brooklyn Riverside apartments will range from 650 to 1293 square feet with an average of 840 square feet. Amenities include a pool with a large pool deck, bocce ball court, and a large community table and grill. Adjacent to the pool will be a two-story clubroom space with a bar and sitting area. Another clubroom will be located on the corner of the fourth floor of the building on Magnolia Street, overlooking the St. Johns River and Downtown skyline. Both clubrooms will be available for tenant parties and other social activities.

Preleasing is planned to start in late December/early January, with move-ins following in February. Prices of apartments at Brooklyn Riverside are estimated to range from $1,000 to $1,500 per month, without utilities.
