In a couple of weeks, a converted Park Slope building at 397 First Street, close to the corner of Sixth Avenue, will launch condo sales. While the building is still very much under gut renovation, it will have eight units: Seven two-bedrooms and one garden duplex. The asking prices will range from $829,000 to $1,279,000. Pros: A lot of historical details are being preserved, and it is zoned for P.S. 321. Meanwhile, updates to the kitchen and new security systems are being put into place. There’s also going to be a common space for bikes and strollers. The developers are East River Partners LLC, and Corcoran is handling the sales and marketing. We had the rare opportunity to witness the gut renovation in progress late last week; click through for some photos.
