Given the amount of buyer interest there was in Parc Maison, a Windsor Terrace condo which sold surprisingly well this fall, we’re intrigued about the prospects for a nearby South Slope development on 16th Street. Seventeen units at 317 16th Street just went on sale via Brown Harris Stevens, and prices are a bit steeper than at Parc Maison: The cheapest, a 944-square-foot 2-bedroom, is asking $645,000 (common charges $258), while the most expensive, a 1,517-square-foot 2-bedroom duplex, is priced at $940,000 (common charges $378). The listings tout the gourmet kitchens, outdoor terrace/balcony space, a common roof deck and on-site parking. We spied folks streaming in and out of the open house this past weekendâ€”anyone have a report?

Community Board One gave the thumbs up to Two Trees’ innovative Domino proposal last night.
