Brooklyn today reflects a dynamic combination of historic and landmarked housing, coupled with modern, new developments. 251 First embraces that combination. The modern two- to four-bedroom condominiums are designed by the award-winning firm ODA Architecture, which took inspiration from the leafy and historic Park Slope brownstone neighborhood by adding living green walls in the public spaces.
The 44 open-plan units (including 11 penthouses with outdoor terraces) are located just three blocks from the R train’s Union Street station. In terms of shopping, Park Slope has a wide variety of boutiques, and 5th and 7th avenues are well known for their treasure trove of boutique shops and celebrated restaurant scene. Not only are dining options in abundance, but Whole Foods is just blocks away if you prefer to eat in.
The neighborhood has excellent schools (public and private) and plenty of space to run around in Brooklyn’s largest park, Prospect Park. Finally, it is located near Barclays Center, the landmark sports and entertainment center, and home to the Brooklyn Nets.
Once you’re home, be prepared to make use of the three floors of amenities, which include a landscaped courtyard, 24-hour concierge, private gym with yoga room, library, children’s playroom, common roof terrace, bicycle storage, and even a pet-grooming station.
But perhaps the most innovative amenity is the stroller valet service. With a room adjacent to the lobby that can store 50 strollers, residents and guests will be able to call down to the lobby attendant so their strollers are ready for when they depart.
The condominiums themselves are modern and inviting, with white oak flooring, stained wood entry doors, and appliances such as Bosch washers and dryers, Kohl stainless steel sinks, and top-of-the-line Gaggenau refrigerators and ovens in every unit.
If you’re in the market for a condo featuring daring design and private outdoor spaces, located in one of Brooklyn’s most exciting areas, get in touch with 251 First today.
