Fourth Avenue, which has seen quite a lot of development in recent years, is now getting another luxury rental building: No. 223, between Union and President streets. The 63-apartment building, which began leasing last weekend, is being developed by Greystone Development, which until recently owned the Brooklyn Lyceum next door.

In fact, Greystone used the air right from the low-rise Lyceum to build upward. The 13-story building, designed by Daniel Goldner Architects, has a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, according to Curbed. Features include in-unit washer-dryers, a roof deck, a virtual doorman, a residents’ lounge and bike storage.

Rents begin at $2,315 for a studio, Curbed reported. As for the Lyceum, it was built in 1906 as a public bath, was transformed into a city-owned gym in the 1930s, became a performance art and cultural center in the 1990s and more recently was converted into a Blink fitness center.
