A new apartment building is now available for Prospect Heights residents looking for affordable rent. The leasing process began last week and is being handled by Brooklyn-based Aguayo & Huebener Realty Group. According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the brokerage agency also helped with selecting the building’s amenities such as the common rooftop terrace, gym, media room equipped with a TV and a billiards table, the bicycle parking, the garage and storage rooms.

Designed by architect Ken Levenson, the four-story building at 801 Bergen St. includes four studio units, 24 one-bedroom apartments, two one-bedroom-plus units and one two-bedroom unit. All units are available for rent as no-fee apartments, according to Aguayo & Huebener Project Manager Deborah Bowie. The monthly rent for these apartments ranges from $1,700 to $2,600.

In the commercial real estate world, according to Citybizlist, 64 hotels owned by Inkeepers USA and its affiliates are about to be sold for $1.02 billion to Cerberus Series Four Holdings LLC, Chatham Lodging Trust and other partners. The 64 hotels to be sold translate to 8,400 rooms in 18 states.

If the New York City Courthouse approves the transaction, Inkeepers USA can exit bankruptcy (the group filed a Chapter 11 petition in July 2010). A green light from the Courthouse would also put an end to a two-month dispute that came up after the buyers rejected a previous deal with a higher price.
