Sleek and contemporary, with a bold geometric façade, The Aaron – located at 236 17th Street in South Park Slope, Brooklyn – offers a collection of distinctive condominium residences. The building’s name commemorates a local retail landmark, Aaron’s Department Store, which stood across the street for more than 40 years. Created by the internationally-renowned firm of Tom Winter Architects, The Aaron’s design is influenced by the serenity of nature. A limited selection of 17 one- two- and three-bedroom homes are now for sale through Citi Habitats New Developments, the building’s exclusive marketing agent.
Just to the northeast of The Aaron is Prospect Park, a 526-acre oasis designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. This spectacular example of landscape design opened to the public in 1867. The park includes man-made lakes, tranquil meadows and forests – as well as ball fields and the Prospect Park Zoo.
Residence interiors at The Aaron feature clean, modern lines and oversized floor-to-ceiling windows. Apartments feature 9’ ceilings and solid wide-plank hardwood floors throughout. In addition, in-unit washer/dryers provide the ultimate convenience for urban dwellers. Select homes also include private balconies or terraces.
Designed for entertaining, The Aaron’s open kitchens boast a Bosch ‘800 series’ stainless-steel appliance package and graphite-toned quiet-close cabinetry. The waterfall-style Caesarstone Classico Collection quartz countertops in Frosty Carrina offer a distinctive custom touch – as do the polished chrome hardware and pendant lighting.
The spa-like baths are finished in grey and white ceramic tile with custom wood vanities. Top-of-the-line fixtures, including deep soaking tubs and frameless glass showers, are reminiscent of the world’s finest resorts. With an array of amenities to pamper and revitalize, these spacious sanctuaries were designed for the discerning.
Common spaces at The Aaron are equally spectacular. Offering views of neighborhood rooftops and the iconic Manhattan skyline beyond, the building’s landscaped roof deck is the perfect place to entertain or simply unwind – and is complete with BBQ grills and a variety of seating. Residents also enjoy access to a fitness center and entertainment room. Bicycle storage is available, in addition to a convenient on-site garage. The Aaron’s dedicated building manager and Virtual Doorman system provide added convenience and a sense of security.
The Aaron is surrounded by thriving dining and nightlife venues. At the building’s doorstep are a number of unique specialty stores and everyday conveniences – like coffee shops, hardware stores and supermarkets. Convenient to the D, N, R, W, F and G trains, all of New York City is easily accessible.
Innovative, thoughtful and well-designed, The Aaron was made for those who love Brooklyn… and who wish to discover all the surprises this very-special borough has to offer.
