"[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.

Ukrainian Village

From $329,900
to $339,900

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.
