Luxurious and hip, 101 Bedford Avenue has been a thriving home to Williamsburg’s toniest denizens since the day its doors opened in 2014. Situated on a city block between North 11th and North 12th Streets, with a main entrance directly across from McCarren Park, its 351 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments are spread out between four eight story buildings designed in a U-shape. The result is a stately complex with a large interior courtyard landscaped as a pocket park, and a great homage to the grand one across the street.
Each apartment has been designed to have views, whether they’re of the East River, Manhattan, McCarren Park, Brooklyn streetscapes or the garden-like interior courtyard; and many additionally feature outdoor space. But what makes 101 BEDFORD truly different is its unparalleled amenities package. Beyond the 2,500-square-foot fitness center with Yoga-barre, Pilates and private training rooms, there is an Olympic-size indoor pool with hot tub and adjacent men’s and women’s saunas.
And although pools, fitness centers and saunas seem to be expected in today’s luxury buildings, few can compete with this comprehensive
package, which rivals many of the most exclusive vacation getaways
and spas. To begin with, there’s a wine vault with temperature controlled storage for individual residents’ collections. The game room, with its colorful décor, offers everything from X-box stations to billiards, and has a built-in wet bar for entertaining. The 29-seat screening room features monthly showings of new films. It’s also available to residents who reserve it for private screenings.
Not many apartment buildings feature sound-proof recording
and photography studios with adjacent dressing rooms.
But this one clearly caters to a creative population and both
facilities are frequently booked. Equally popular is the PGA
Golf Simulator room, where people practice their swings on
facsimiles of St. Andrews, Pebble Beach and others tournament
Catering to the many people in the building working remotely
or freelance, 101 Bedford has a real business center with conference room and adjacent library with couches and a fireplace overlooking McCarren Park. For busy families, there’s a state-of-the-art children’s playroom stocked with oversized stuffed animals and educational games. The pet-friendly building even has a dedicated canine cleaning station with shampoos, sinks and dryers.
Perhaps the most coveted warm weather amenity is the 17,000-square-foot roof deck, fully furnished with a mini beach, plenty of cabana seating and multiple gas barbeque grills. Cutting edge convenience also extends to an efficient lifestyle that includes on-site parking, 24/7doorman/concierge service and two ATM machines in the lobby, which are particularly handy when buying candy, soda, detergent and even batteries from one of two vending machines in the game room.
Add in the beautiful interiors by world-class designer Hadas Metzler and this community within the Williamsburg community
is a truly special place to live!
