Everything About Brooklyn's Toren Says 'Snazzy'

This attractive 38-story condo going up at 150 Myrtle and Flatbush -- the Toren -- (that's the Oro in the background) is really something. The builders are aiming for silver-LEED (eco-friendly) certification, and residents will enjoy a multi-level rooftop garden, fitness center with a swimming pool, and high-end appliances.

Brownstoner reports that Toren will feature 240 market rate condos and 40 below-market rate condos (and The New York Times reported that 10,000 people entered the lottery to buy those units).

Even the unions are aiming high with the Toren. They dusted off their extra-special rat -- the one with the whiskery nose and stinky cigar -- to protest the non-union labor situation.
