In Pictures: Post District ribbon-cutting

The Post District held a party this week to celebrate the opening of leasing in three of its four residential buildings, which will offer 580 residences in all.

Both The Register, at the corner of 300 West and 500 South, and 801 Flats, the boxy structure on 400 West just south of the NEC/Traeger Grills building, are 80% leased up.

801 Flats has the development’s most attainable rents ranging from studios at $1300 and 2-bedrooms at $2100, Property Manager Christopher Sullivan told us.

Leasing for Post House North has begun, as well. Leasing agents are advertising concessions “up to $4500” for new leases at North.

Examples of current rental listings at Post’s three open buildings range from a one-bedroom/one-bath, 555 SF, at $1695; or 729 SF at $2135/month.

A two-bed/two-bath apartment, 1100 SF, runs $2985/month.

A three-bed/three-bath, 1576 SF, will cost renters $4065/month.

At just under $300/SF, Post is renting in the upper half of the market. It’s hoping that design quality, amenities, and choice of 38 different floor plans for apartment shoppers will boost them above their luxury apartment peers.

Level Crossing brewing will be opening within two weeks, Christopher Sullivan told us.
