Closings started for the sold-out condominiums at a Park Slope conversion that Manhattan-based developer East River Partners gutted and renovated in 2012.

The two and three bedroom condos at 371 Sixth Avenue were designed to lure Brooklyn families and went on the market in 2013. The apartments feature 9’6 ceilings, individually controlled heating and cooling in each room, hand-laid walnut floors and in-unit washer-dryer sets.

Now all four units have sold, including a 2,069-square-foot garden duplex for $2.1 million, according to BuzzBuzzHome.

    I’ve heard a lot of great things about Jody Kriss and the East River Partners, but is Park Slope any good? I was thinking about moving out there with my family soon.

    • VickyD.

      Tony, yes the East River Partners do great work and you should look into them: http://eastriverpartners.com/. I use to live in Park Slope. It is a family neighborhood, near a park. Lots of kids live here, you see lots of kids walking to Prospect Park, or to school. The neighborhood has great subway connections to the city. When I lived here with my family before I moved to Gramercy, it was still a family community.

    Jody Kriss and East River Partners did some great work on renovating these properties at Park Slope. I do hope they can do some work and development outside New York City.

    Found some more great projects at http://www.eastriverpartners.com/
    These guys have been really busy on their real estate developments

  • Wynstone

    Ask anyone, Park Slope is known for is the strollers, but I can’t blame families for wanting to settle in such a beautiful neighborhood. And, yes, Kriss and the East River Partners do great renovations. That’s why people can’t resist coming here.

    • XQ21

      Kriss and East River Partners may do great renovations, but their business practices leave much to be desired.

      • TacoTuesdays

        Go on…

        • XQ21

          THe company and Jody currently have two lawsuits going on two of their eight properties regarding dangerous living conditions. They could care less about current tenants in the building, and seem to just want them out.

          • TacoTuesdays

            Two lawsuits out of eight buildings? Well that’s no good. What are they?

          • XQ21

            One is Pine, and it’s two families who sued ERP for basicaly exposing them to serious and hamful conditions and forcing them from their homes.

          • TacoTuesdays

            And the other lawsuit?

          • XQ21

            The other lawsuit is Brun, and it’s a guy who was injured and harassed by Jody Kriss and East River Partners.

          • TacoTuesdays

            What was the outcome of these cases?

          • XQ21

            The Pine case ended with both families receiving a $800K settlement.

          • TacoTuesdays

            And the Brun case?

          • XQ21

            Still pending. But I’m sure it will have the same outcome. The proof of negligence is all there.

  • The1AndOnly

    Jody Kriss and the ERP are really turning that city around in certain areas. Wish they’d start doing work in Philly, where I live.

    • CooperX

      No, trust me, you don’t. Jody Kriss is nothing more than a scumbag mobster under the disguise of a rela estate developer. There’s proof everywhere about it. East River Partners is nothing more than a mob front.

      • Entrust

        Where are you getting this information? Those are some pretty exorbitant and biased claims you’re making.

        • CooperX

          Kriss v Bayrock I and II, Kriss v Lombardi, Gottdiener v Lauria, Pine v East River Partners, Brun v East River Partners, where should I start?

          • Entrust

            Are those all lawsuits revolving Jody Kriss?

          • CooperX

            Yes. The first four are his personal vendetta lawsuits against his former employer, and the last two deal with endangerment at properties owned by East River Partners. The last two are in the past few months, so there are surely more.

          • Entrust

            I just read through it. Those are some high-stakes claims judging by Kriss v Lombardi. Careful he doesn’t come after you next. Why are these lawsuits not in a brighter light?

          • CooperX

            I’m not sure. Maybe he has friends in high places. He’s all over the radar in Russia. Of course, his biggest claim is that Bayrock was run by the Russian Mob, so there’s that. I’m sure they’re thrilled.

          • Entrust

            Surely not. This guy is trying to paint a huge target on his back or something? Jeez.

          • CooperX

            It’s almost like he has a death wish, really. The confusion for me is where the capital from ERP came from. Ther are reports of him traveling to Ukraine recently.

          • Entrust

            Wow, Ukraine and Russia aren’t on good terms. What is he doing, playing sides? Did Bayrock employees anger him this bad? Dang.

          • CooperX

            That’s all debatable and speculative. I don’t want to say anything for sure, for threat of a lawsuit, but you get the point.
