Fourth Avenue #2: The Park Slope Five

Here in one frame are five buildings or sites that are first wave of development on Fourth Avenue, which is the dividing line between Park Slope and Gowanus. It was rezoned a few years ago to allow buildings up to 12 stories tall. Looks like the change is having its intended effect.
1) This sliver of a building is 251 Fourth Avenue. It's nine stories with eight units and the work of a Brooklyn favorite, Henry Radusky of Bricolage Designs, who also produced number 5, below.
2) A Robert Scarano-designed building, 255 Fourth Avenue with 41 apartments on 12 floors is supposed to go here. Right now, though, there's a Stop Work Order for causing "major damage" to the building next door.
3) Actually, this is 255 1st Street, but it would be on Fourth Avenue were it not for the McDonald's. We've, uh, called this 12-story building with 32 units Big Mac Tower in the past.
4) Developer Shaya Boymelgreen's Crest.
5) The Crest's big brother, the Novo Park Slope, which has been the subject of much glee, for instance, here and here.
