New York rental features radiant floor heating and social atmosphere

A new rental complex in the hip NYC neighborhood of Williamsburg is outfitted with fine features and a new "more social" living plan. The complex is being called the Williamsburg Social and the 72-units included in the building range from a 436-square-foot studio to an 849-square-foot two-bedroom, reports New York Curbed. What's unique about this apartment building is the intended "dormification" of the property. Residents are encouraged to spend time in lounge areas and other recreational spots. 
Besides the more unorthodox social living atmosphere - especially for a city known for people ignoring their own neighbors - each unit in the complex is outfitted with quality finishes. The news source reports that each unit has a washer/dryer, white oak flooring, stainless steel kitchen appliances and a radiant floor heating system located underneath the marble floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. 
The radiant floor heating system will allow a resident to forgo the uncomfortable feeling of walking on cold floors in the morning, evening and every time in between. In addition to boosting comfort, the system uses less energy than traditional base board, vent or radiator heating utilities - making it both an eco-friendly choice and more cost effective. The radiant floor heating system will definitely be a feature that attracts potential residents who are looking to decrease their energy use - without suffering a lack of comfort. 
In addition to the quality heating system, the property also includes a landscaped courtyard, a rooftop deck and multiple lounges. New York Curbed reports that these featured spaces are available for use by everyone in the building and residents are encouraged to get to know one another.
