"[The developers] wanted to keep with the character of the building," says Susan Wooten, a Koenig & Strey GMAC agent—which explains the blend of the old and the new in the Ukrainian Village condo building at the southwest corner of Huron and Wood streets.
Tall pilasters stretch up the outside of the former apartment building; inside, Joseph A. Bell Development has preserved some original elements (such as the detailed newel posts), complementing them with high-quality kitchen cabinets and other modern touches. In the living room of one of the two condos remaining for sale, a tin ceiling, busy with curlicues and interlocking patterns, has been there for most of a century.
The condo with the tin, a first-floor space with a private street entrance, is priced at $329,900.The other unit, a second-floor two-bedroom condo with a big south-facing bay window, has a price tag of $339,900. Wooten is representing both units, and both are ready for immediate occupancy. All the parking spaces at the building have already been sold.
