The Clinton Hill neighborhood has seen a recent influx of young urban professionals wishing to take advantage of the neighborhood’s lower living costs compared to areas of Manhattan.  With the close proximity to The Pratt Institute, Clinton Hill has a great artsy vibe and a number of nice restaurants, shops and coffee shops along Myrtle Avenue, which makes it an attractive home to many students and artists. With continued development taking place, Muss saw the potential growth and transformation of the neighborhood from a campus hub, to a vibrant community for families to expand.

Muss focused on standing out in an area where new buildings continue to rise. The building’s art-centric amenities such as the in house gallery and workroom, as well as the work from home space, serve this young, creative clientele. Keyed into the needs of the tenants, a karaoke machine, guitar and keyboard were added as an additional amenity after a year to cater to the needs of the musical residents. Duplex apartments with large, easily dividable areas make great spaces for students to share or families to expand as they continue to rent at 180 Franklin. Muss plans seasonal programming like rooftop yoga and concerts for residents. 180 Franklin focuses not just on renting apartments, but on the overall experience.
