Review of 243 Fourth Avenue by Carter Horsley

This attractive, 12-story apartment building at 243 Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, was erected in 2020 and has 19 condominium apartments. 

It was developed by Brodmore Management Inc. 

INC Architecture & Design designed the building and Fisher + Makooi Architects was the project architect. 

According to an article at, "the project was at one point being developed by Haysha Deitsch, a controversial landlord who is perhaps best known for his war against the residents of Prospect Park Residence, a retirement home he used to own."  "He eventually reached a $3.35 million settlement with five of the senior home's residents," the article continued, adding that he "subsequently defaulted on that payment." 

The building is called "Parlour."

The building has a large arched entrance beneath a chevron-pattern bronze screen.  The entrance leads to a barrel-vaulted lobby. 

Adam Rolston of INC Architecture & Design told that "the residences are designed to capture all of the comfort and scale of a brownstone yet laid out on one level," adding that "the floor-through living replicates the proportions of their grand living spaces, resulting in parlors in the sky."  "The interior finishes of Parlour," he said, "respond to what we see as a broader yearning for warmer, historically and culturally grounded environments with genuine character." 

The lobby has artwork from the Gowanus Canal series by William Miller, a local artist.


The building has a fitness center, a residents' lounge, a children's playroom, a terrace with an outdoor kitchen, a bicycle room, personal storage, sidewalk landscaping and some dedicated parking.
