“Pre-War-Inspired” Park Slope Condos Now for Sale


Now here’s an interesting building. A few units have hit the market at the Park Union, the new Park Slope condo building off Grand Army Plaza. The design is clearly modern, yet “pre-war inspired,” according to the listing. We think we detect some Beaux-Arts-style touches in the ironwork and bathroom tile. And some units have fireplaces! According to Streeteasy, there are three three-bedroom condos up for grabs, asking $1,750,000, $1,675,000, and $1,625,000. (Square footage for all is listed at 1,525.) There are 15 one-, two- and three-bedroom units total with prices starting at $795,000. Here’s how the brokers describe the interiors: “Walk-in stone showers with oversized rain shower heads, custom toasted oak flooring, auxiliary freezers, dual-zone wine coolers, and luxurious prewar-inspired finishes.” Check out more renderings here.

  • Clean yet charmingly warm – love the fireplace, large windows – light.

  • Far better than the average new build. But — not to get all HGTV here — where is the crown molding?

  • yawn, nothing we havent seen a billion times already.

    and I am sorry, but a 3 bedroom does not need 3 bathrooms, especially when there is so little closet / storage space.

    the multitude of bathrooms these days is so ridiculous, really, just ho many bathroom does on household have to have.

    • A luxury 3 bedroom requires 3 bathrooms. Parents aren’t sharing with the kids in a $1.75 million apartment.

      I mean, even your bargain basement $200k new home in the Midwest or somewhere has a bathroom for every bedroom nowadays. Why wouldn’t the same be true in new construction multi-million listings?

      And no one pays those prices for storage space. You can just rent storage space for next to nothing.

      • The maximum number of baths for a luxury 3 bedroom is 2.5 and no more. A powder room for guests and one bath for the parents and one for everyone else. Yes, the occasional guest can share a bathroom with a child. The minimum number of baths for a household of more than one person is 1.5.

      • um, no, for that price I want an abundant amount of closets and storage space and do not want to rent a storage space elsewhere…

        I also want a full kitchen, not a wall in the living room like another posted stated.

  • So once again the “kitchen” is a wall in the living area. No thank you.

  • I basically like the looks of the apartments, though I don’t think they have nearly enough closet space. Storing one’s winter or summer clothes off-site is not something I would associate with a luxury apartment. I do like having an extra bathroom or two. (I have three full ones in my brownstone – when I want to use a bathroom, I don’t want to wait and definitely don’t want to share.

  • i think the living dining kitchen space should have been bigger, lose on of the bedrooms and incorporate that into the living space.

    the one bedroom layout is nothing we havent seen before, aka, the 2 room special.

    oh, and whopp de doo bee doo be doo, a dual zone wine cooler, oh yippie, that really swayed me…oooh, and an auxilliary freezer, wow, what a concept.
    does is freeze any more colder than a sears kenmore???

  • Interiors look warm and charming.
    Exterior looks as though it was hit with traditional applique fired out of a cannon. The broken pediment over the door? the palladian arched doorway? The left three piers with a three story order? Corbels or brackets on those colums that don’t fully reach up and “support” the heavy horizontal above? The right two window bays with juliet balconys at the third floor? The symmetry above? Proportion of top cornice is weak. Set in balconies at the corner are wierd especially on something trying to be pre-war. I could go on, but if this is pre-war, someone needs a history lesson!

  • The kitchens are underwhelming. If you are marketing these as family homes, they should have a family style kitchen. Same principle goes for closets and storage – in the real world, kids and families have a lot of stuff. The finishes do seem nice though.

  • @stargazr – there is no law preventing the owners from turning the 3rd bathroom into a lovely closet.

  • Funny, the 1 and 2 bedrooms have more of a separate kitchen room than the 3′s. I’m thinking the 3′s aren’t intended for families, but for perhaps a couple of rich folks who don’t cook, but want extra rooms for offices or perhaps a guest room.
