What's next for the "stocky, brooding" 37 Great Jones?

While I'm in the neighborhood... Dunno how long 37 Great Jones has been on the market...



As the Times noted in March 2008: "An unusual addition to the street was the stocky, brooding building at 37 Great Jones, designed in 1917 by Lewis Patton and used as a warehouse in the 1930s by the Philco Radio and Television Corporation."

Here's how it looked in 1936 (via):



The building is on the block for $8.8 million. As the listing (PDF) notes, "This property represents a unique opportunity for an investor or end user (such as a single family or restaurant), in an area teaming with new development. This building abuts Ian Schrager's 40 Bond, and numerous other new projects."

Single family?

This building has always caught my eye. I'm curious to know what the interior is like. Any family should keep in mind there will be loud fire trucks coming and going from across the street 24/7.

Ah, yes! Excellent point on the fire trucks. Any family who can afford buying and renovating the building should be able to pick up some soundproof windows too!
