Pick Between a Classic Seven and Modern Condo in 'ProCro'

New, 9 comments

Imagine you have around $2,000,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 225 Eastern Parkway #2A/ 535 Dean Street #706
Price: $1,750,000 $1,900,000
Monthly Costs: $1,468 $1,485
Square Footage: 2,043 1,880
Beds, Baths: 3, 2.5 3, 2

↑ Disclaimer: we know that "ProCro" isn't, or shouldn't be, a real thing. But for the purposes of pitting these two apartments against each other, let's just say it is. The first, in 225 Eastern Parkway, is prewar classic seven (three bedrooms, living room, dining room, and kitchen — although missing the requisite maid's room) that was gut renovated in 2006.

↑ This seventh-floor unit in 535 Dean Street (the significantly-unattractive-from-the-outside Newswalk Phase 3) is more modern, but what really sets it apart is the outdoor space — a 160-square-foot north-facing terrace. The ceilings are also extremely high.
