It’s been less than three months since sales launched at 251 1st Street, the condo of cascading boxes that replaced a McDonald’s on Brooklyn’s Fourth Avenue, and things are moving right along. Just four condos remain up for grabs in the 44-apartment building. They include a three-bedroom, two and a half bath asking $2.6 million, and a four-bedroom, three-bathroom on the market for $2.9 million.
To woo in the last few buyers needed to sell out the building, the folks marketing 251 First just released new images of the $2.9 million penthouse. (The images also happen to be the first photos we’ve seen from inside the building.) It seems 251 First is doing something right, not the least of which may be its extremely useful but jest-worthy stroller valet amenity.
The 11-story building was designed inside and out by ODA New York. The apartments are on the smaller side—the four-bedroom, three bathroom penthouse is just 1,700 square feet—and include finishes like satin lacquer cabinetry in the kitchens, Sivec marble in the master bathrooms, and porcelain in the secondary bathrooms. Apartments on the building’s fifth floor and above each come with at least one terrace, many of which have views onto Brooklyn’s so-called Canyon of Mediocrity.
