'No Baby Gap' Building Morphs Into Pricey Green Condos

One Five One Condo

Remember the No Baby Gap Building in on Fifth Avenue in the South Slope? Well, the site of the old Salvation Army Store has a very new look. It's now the Five One Five Condo as photographer and photoblogger Sam Horine (aka f.trainer) noted. The website promotes it as "Juicy Real Estate, Brooklyn-Style" and the new building is being sold as an environmentally-friendly green development with a green roof, bamboo flooring, solar-powered outdoor lights and more. "featuring planters filled with colorful succulents." The roof actually includes "Xpotential Sleepers...created from recycling scrap car parts." Then, there is bamboo flooring, rubber tiles made from renewable tropical rubber plants and Toto Plumbing Fixtures, which leaves us picturing a little dog from Kansas doing his business in a state-of-the-art bathroom on a green roof in Park Slope. Oh, and solar-powered outdoor lights. Two bedrooms are listed between $650,000 and $700,000. The corner has come a long way from the Salvation Army days.

WOW, crazy. I live at this corner--now I'm just curious about what the ground floor retail will be.
