This new townhouse development in South Slope has put its first three units on the market — all two bedroom apartments. The most expensive unit in the building at 289 13th Street is a duplex consisting of the garden level and finished cellar with a back yard for $1,599,000.
While the building is a story taller than those of the adjacent houses, the architect, Ben Ellis of Ellis + Donnelly Studio managed to create a design that, for the most part, fits in well with its neighbors by incorporating red brick, stone lintels and a cornice. The interiors, however, are modern.
Curbed, which first reported on the development, took issue with the kitchens — which are a far cry from the typical subway tile and slab of marble — calling them “some of the ugliest kitchens in the world.”
