Welcome to 12K at University Towers, a well-appointed recently renovated 1 bedroom located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn and Fort-Greene. The home is 100% move-in ready! There is absolutely nothing you have to do.
Upon entering this lovely home, you are immediately welcomed by an oversized foyer that can easily accommodate a home office. This open area is perfect for entertaining and flows nicely into the living/dining room and kitchen. The spacious common area can comfortably fit a full set of both living and dining room furniture. Enjoy the northern exposure and the pretty NYC skyline views from every window! The thoughtfully designed kitchen is fully equipped with a magnificent breakfast bar that is perfect for a quick bite or expansive meal preparation. There are plenty of cabinets for all of your storage needs, as well as top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher.

Completely private and tucked away at the opposite end of the apartment is the king-sized bedroom with ample closets and 2 windows offering double exposure and cool cross breezes. The renovated bathroom is conveniently just outside the bedroom and offers all new plumbing, tile, and fixtures. New dual pane thermal windows and beautiful floors put the finishing touches on this lovely home!
University Towers is a well-established and well-maintained cooperative with excellent financials and reserves. In recent years, the cooperative has made substantial capital improvements enhancing residents' quality of life, without any assessments. Recent projects include a landscaped pergola offering additional outdoor seating and exterior lighting and surveillance covering the entire 5.5 acres of this beautiful gated community. Capital improvements also include parking lot repaving, local law 11 brick repointing, new dual pane thermal windows installed complex-wide, and upgraded laundry facilities with smart technology. The grounds include a beautifully manicured and serene barbecue terrace with 4 commercial size gas grills and free WIFI, making you feel as if you are at a Five Star Resort (minus the palm trees)! Some more wonderful building amenities include a recently renovated gym with brand new top-of-the-line machines and equipment, full-service staff (including 24-hour door attendants, full-time porters & handymen, as well as two live-in supers), a video security system, 2 large elevators, beautifully landscaped gardens throughout the complex, children's playground, gazebo, in-door bike storage, general storage, and a spacious community room.
