Peeking at the Condo Conversion of a Park Slope Brownstone

Over at 397 First Street in Park Slope, an eight-unit brownstone is well into the process of becoming an eight-unit condo. Developers East River Partners sent along some construction-in-progress shots of the building, which will include seven two-bedrooms and one duplex. Prices for the apartments, which are right across from P.S. 321, will range from $800,000 to $1.3 million, and a few of the brownstone’s original details, including stained glass windows and granite mantles, remain.

The developers tell us they held a “design charette” with 15 area families to find out how to make the building as family-friendly as possible. What they came up with: tubs in the second bathrooms, to bathe small children, and non-toxic paint. The building also has a bike/stroller room, which seems to pretty well cover the neighborhood demographics.
