Development Notebook: Novo Park Slope Gets Its Retail

November 14th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Developer Shaya Boymelgreen’s Novo Park Slope Condo on Fourth Avenue now has it’s “street level retail.” In this case, it’s New York Methodist Hospital’s Ambulatory Infusion Center. We won’t crack any jokes about this one because, among other things, it’s where cancer patients go to get their chemotherapy.

    yeah, god forbid they put something there that actually helps the community. you’re right, they should have put a bank in there, no wait, a real estate broker, or how about a Thai or Sushi place.

    Well, that’s very convenient for all the MH interns who are living upstairs…short commute.

    The thing is, who would buy into a building knowing the ground floor retail just doesn’t match the price they paid for their “luxury”.

    Most of these insta-condos have really crappy retail on the ground floor. No “curb appeal” there at all.

    So I’m not against places like a hospital opening up a satellite location in a place like this, but what exactly are people buying into when they buy into a place like this?
