    Daily News
    Tale of two condos
    Call it the Jekyll-and-Hyde condo.

    A new apartment building with a dual personality is rising on the former site of the Brooklyn Gospel Tabernacle in Park Slope. At eight stories, it will instantly become one the tallest structures on busy Flatbush Ave.

    On the side facing Park Place - a leafy, landmarked residential block replete with gas lanterns - plans call for the new structure to blend in with century-old brownstones.

    But the side facing Flatbush Ave. will be a modern, all-glass and aluminum facade that will tower over the neighboring row houses and stores on the commercial strip.

    "It's unlike anything else on Flatbush," declared architect and developer Tom Anderson, president of the real estate firm Anderson Associates. "It's a very dramatic facade, all glass and aluminum, and I thought it would be fun."

    The 47-unit building, tentatively named Park Place Condominiums, is due to be completed in April. Anderson expects the average 1,200-square-foot apartment will fetch $660,000.

    "This building goes out of its way to acknowledge the historic value of the community, but it also goes out of its way to enliven a pretty dreary portion of Flatbush Ave.," Anderson said. "I hope it will be appreciated as an architectural statement."

    Neighbors of the new building, however, aren't so sure they'll appreciate Anderson's statement.

    "My first impression was that I didn't like it," said a neighborhood homeowner who didn't want her name used.

    "I'm not opposed to modernist structures going up in brownstone Brooklyn, but this didn't feel right to me."

    Jennifer Rawe, president of the Park Place Association of Neighbors, said that Anderson Associates has been attentive to the group's concerns thus far.

    The building's Park Place facade will be covered with real brownstone stucco and will have a unique setback that visually conceals the top three floors - design aspects that Anderson said neighbors requested.

    But Rawe cited the noise of demolition and an exodus of rats from the ruins of the old church and onto Park Place as the two main gripes being voiced by neighbors.

    The Park Place Condominium is the latest example of new construction projects in ultra-hot Park Slope.

    With real estate values in the neighborhood near historic highs, developers are snapping up any land available to build apartments, said Hal Lehrman Jr., co-owner of Brooklyn Properties.

    However, the new condo development hasn't been free of road bumps. The project's contractor, HRH Construction, was issued two violations for failing to post signs and provide approved plans during a Feb. 24 inspection, according to Jennifer Givner, spokeswoman for the Department of Buildings.

    A $3,500 bill must be paid before the building is awarded a certificate of occupancy, she said.

    Park Place Condominiums is going to have two fronts. Side facing Park Place is going up first and will have a facade (below) that blends in with brownstones. Side facing Flatbush Ave. will have modern glass and aluminum facade (3rd photo).

    The "Pre War" period would be an error, unless it's "Pre-War with Iran & Syria." Also, it is not a highrise.

    They do - you can find something as long as you're not irrational about being on 7th, 8th, PPW, or north of 9th street.

    Try 5th ave, 4th ave, or south slope (prospect ave area) or windsor terrace.

    Anderson Associates:The Shinnecock
    939 Union Street, Brooklyn NY 11217

    The Shinnecock is the first new building to be constructed around Prospect Park since the 1960's. This striking, 16-story condominium will present a level of service and quality of finishes unequalled anywhere in Brooklyn.

    The Shinnecock offers family-sized half floor, two bedroom residences of over 1,200 square feet and full floor, three bedroom residences comprising 1,800 to 2,400 square feet. For those requiring even more space, there are two rare triplex maisonettes with six bedrooms, as well as two spectacular triplex penthouses with private roof terraces. Many residences afford spectacular views of the harbor, the river and the glittering City skyline.

    Ideally situated around the corner from The Montauk Club in the most sought-after area of Park Slope, The Shinnecock is surrounded by historic brownstones, stately pre-war apartments and Brooklyn's finest selection of quality shops and superior restaurants. The building's proximity to the major transportation hub at nearby Grand Army Plaza allows for an expeditious commute to Manhattan.

    Anderson Associates has acted as developer and construction manager for the project. Among the many challenges faced with this project, none were as daunting as overcoming local community opposition. In spite of the fact that this project has enhanced local property values significantly, delays of over one year were the result of legal actions taken against the project. These actions were all successfully overcome and the project is slated for a fall 2002 grand opening.

    Re: 28 Garfield Place, the restaurant my sister sometimes works at is a block away. I saw that thing go up and was pretty disappointed. The facade is painted concrete or something and there's no detailing and no color variation anywhere.

    "This beautifully situated exclusive new building consists of 16 generously sized family homes. Finished to the highest standards and touched with luxury, these apartments feature large outdoor spaces and breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. The opulent penthouses are highlighted by loft style ceilings and every aspect designed with only the best craftsmanship. A prime location, close to shopping and transportation to Manhattan, this building is destined to be a fast sellout. "

    "Two 25 X 100 lots allow the creation of twin buildings. The facades of each were not duplicated, but rather were designed to compliment each other and create the look of a single structure and clean, simple lines help reinforce the modernist look.
    Two colors of brick masonry, metal panel and glass make up the palate. Large expanses of glass bring light into the multi-height interior spaces at both the front and rear elevations, creating dramatic interiors and exteriors.
    The eight families that will reside at each of these structures will be treated to
    large, detailed interior spaces. Upon entry to the unit, living room heights approach 15 feet.
    The opportunities for evolution in a neighborhood come from an uncomplicated progression from one style to another. Using simple materials enhance the volumes this building creates. Making infill buildings flatter their neighbors requires contextual and independent thinking. They bring a stabilizing element to the block, while raising the bar for future developments."
