BRONX, NY - JCS Realty, a real estate development company based in New York, announced today the launch of leasing at ONE38, a new 12-story ground-up rental development located in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx. Located at 138 Bruckner Boulevard, between Bruckner Boulevard and St. Ann’s Avenue, the full-service luxury rental building offers 448 market rate and 131 affordable modern apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom residences. In addition to spacious homes, ONE38 also offers residents an extensive indoor and outdoor amenity collection spanning over 40,000 square feet. With first move-ins slated for June, prospective renters can view a suite of model residences furnished by Stage One NYC, a Brooklyn-based interior staging firm.

"With its extravagant amenity package, sweeping views of New York City and sophisticated design, ONE38 offers renters the spacious residences and the comprehensive wellness-focused lifestyle that they are looking for right now,” said Joseph Friedman, CEO and Partner of Nooklyn, the leasing firm for ONE38. “The Mott Haven neighborhood has transformed into a dynamic hub for entertainment and is only a 15-minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan. ONE38 is the latest addition to the thriving neighborhood, and we are excited to commence leasing and welcome our first residents in June.”

Designed by Greenberg Farrow in collaboration with a façade and interiors designed by London-based Michaelis Boyd, the award-winning architecture and interior design studio famed for its work on residential and commercial projects including 11 Hoyt, Battersea Power Station and Moxy Lower East Side, ONE38 boasts an eye-catching façade with a distinctive brick pattern embracing the neighborhood’s prominent industrial character. With minimalistic details and brick masonry featured throughout the building, ONE38’s interiors strike a balance between industrial and playful elements, paying homage to neighborhood's past. Inspired by the Bronx’s cultural and urban movements, ONE38 was designed with custom wall coverings, art pieces and bold graphics from the graffiti movement inspired by famous American graffiti artist Keith Haring.

Each residence at ONE38 has been thoughtfully designed to ensure seamless living and functionality by providing expansive open-concept floor plan layouts designed to maximize space. All apartments feature soaring windows, generous bedroom and storage closet space, in-unit washer and dryer, a keyless entry system and energy-efficient home climate control thermostats. Kitchens feature premium stainless steel high-end appliances, light green and oak wood-finish cabinetry with ribbed groove detailing, quartz stone countertops with a scratch and stain-resistant surface, a porcelain mosaic tile backsplash, a dishwasher and more. The apartments also boast spacious bathrooms with ample storage, beautiful vanities, as well as elegant porcelain wall and flooring tiles. Select residences at ONE38 also feature indoor/outdoor balconies and soaking bathtubs with a rain shower feature.

Creating an unparallel lifestyle experience, ONE38 features a robust indoor and outdoor amenities program designed around an impressive 9,000-square-foot interior garden. Residents of ONE38 will have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center spanning 5,000 square feet and equipped with weight-strengthening equipment, a sauna, steam and recovery rooms, various fitness and yoga studios and an Olympic size indoor pool – the first of its kind in the Bronx. ONE38 also features a multipurpose indoor court that can be used to play basketball, volleyball, pickleball, handball, and squash.

With its proximity to Manhattan, spacious interiors, and a plethora of amenities, ONE38 is the ideal offering for both those who work from home as well as commuters, ensuring a swift connection from Mott Haven to Midtown, the Financial District and more.
