This 12-story building at 255 1st Street in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn has 32 residential condominium apartments and was developed by Steven Sharabo, a partner of 261 1st Street Condo Associates.

The red-brick building was designed by Steven Kratchman.

The building, which has two-setbacks and is adjacent to a McDonald's drive-in restaurant, was initially known as Gowanus but is known now as Elan.

It was completed in 2007 and has many balconies. It is highlighted by a thin white stripe at very floor.

The building has Bosch stainless steel kitchen appliances, Caesar stone kitchen countertops, maple flooring, walk-in closets, a garage and a doorman.

It is four blocks from Prospect Park and close to many restaurants along Fifth Avenue.
