Rarely does a property come to market with this kind of architectural pedigree. We are proud to present a historic opportunity to own, and redevelop into a custom home, a super-prime Upper West Side building, with the provenance of having been designed by McKim, Mead & White; the prominent American architectural firm that thrived at the turn of the 20th century. Arguably the greatest firm of its era, it's better known New York City landmark works include Manhattan's former Pennsylvania Station, the Brooklyn Museum, and the main campus of Columbia University. This special property was er ected in 1885 as a single-family townhouse and later converted into eight apartments. The Romanesque facade of deep red brick, and terra-cotta ornament on the upper floors, is complemented by it's handsome Mansard roof. It is delivered 'as is', completely vacant, and was damaged by a fire in late 2013. It represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for a buyer to write the next chapter in this significant property's history by restoring it's facade and developing a large custom home inside as a single or multi-family townhouse; within walking distance to both Riverside and Central Parks. The subject property lies within the Riverside-West End Historic District and is zoned R-10A. The lot measures 24'X 100', and the 5 story building is 24'X 70'. We believe that the current 6,600 SF building could be modestly expanded to about 7,000 SF, subject to the approvals of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. Please contact us for more details about this unique, historic re-development site. All bids considered.
