The lower floor is currently the home of the Faison Fireplace Theater. While the two upper floors are the private residence of Tony Award-winning choreographer George Faison.
Completed in 1909 it was designed by the architect Howard E. Constable to house the Hook and Ladder Company 40. The ornamental limestone facade is flanked by 2 huge bay windows. There are breathtaking 16+ foot ceilings. The property has excellent light throughout the day. The private residence resembles a Venetian Palazzo with an interior Juliette balcony, terraces on every floor and HVAC central air.
You will find spectacular 360-degree views of the city from the private finished roof deck. This building is surrounded by a high wrought-iron fence and has the distinction of being the only property on the block with a curb-cut garage, a very rare commodity.
Steps from Morning Side Park, the Apollo Theater, public transportation and acclaimed food corridors on Frederick Douglass and Lenox Avenues.
With 14,000 SF of additional air rights and buildable space, bring your architect to create the work/live space or private residence of dreams. Must be seen to truly appreciate its uniqueness and beauty. The description does not do it justice. It will not be available for long.
