251 First Street allows its residents to enjoy the best that Brooklyn has to offer — established schools, verdant parks, proven shopping and great dining — while satisfying their insistence upon modern technology and design. 251 is where beauty, function, necessity and luxury coalesce in a style and setting that, first and foremost, yield the promise of a great living experience.
In a city where light and space are rare commodities, how can both be supplied in abundance?
This question drove the decision-making process for the design of 251 First Street. The arrived-upon answers are elegant and ingenious: cascading terraces that create multitudes of windows and outdoor spaces, floor-to-ceiling glass in every home, an open plan full-floor lobby, and a pair of sun-splashed courtyards.
An urban oasis, 251 First Street incorporates natural materials and textures to create an environment that is artistic and optimistic.
Lush green walls and a rich medley of woods provide a genuine natural presence, while man-made materials — concrete and metals — are fashioned to mimic nature, enlivening them with an organic sensibility.
