Rents aren't that high compared to other new buildings. plus, not everyone in Brooklyn wants a creaky floored, porous windowed brownstone with "character". A/C, elevator, gym, W/D, etc are pretty nice amenities that you basically can't find around here unless you buy a brownstone for $2MM and then gut it. I won't begrudge anyone choosing to live in there, they'll be pretty average apartment renters in the area, unlike the super rich scooping up brownstones for ungodly sums.
