The condos rising at the corner of First Street and Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn will hit the market in a few weeks, but ahead of the building's sales launch some new, juicy details have made their way to the Times, primarily that the 44-condo building will not only have dedicated stroller storage, but a stroller valet. That's right, ladies and gents. We've reached peak Brooklyn.
"It’s a similar concept as a bike room," Omri Sachs of developer Adam America told the Times, "Just like how you don’t want to store bikes on balconies, we’d like to help with stroller storage." To be clear, 251 First Street will also have bike storage, as well as a yoga room, and a landscaped courtyard. Someone grinding GMO-free nut butter will be available in the lobby every first Tuesday of the month, according to an incredibly disproven rumor that we actually made up.
The apartments are suited to families, with two to four bedrooms, and will ask from $1.3 to $3 million. The building's 11 penthouses will span floors eight to 11, and in most cases, each habitable room will have a balcony. Each apartment will have wide-plank white oak floors, master bathrooms decked out in marble, Bosch washers and dryers, Gaggenau stoves and refrigerators, and wine fridges.
The building is designed by ODA, and 33 of the units have individual floorplans. It rises on the erstwhile site of a McDonald's.
