Another East Village 'redevelopment opportunity'


165 Avenue B is on the market. The building is just north of East 10th Street. A few years back, junk shop Waldorf Hysteria called the retail space home....



Now the groundfloor is rather sterile looking... (Or as l.e.s.ter once commented, "Holding-Cell Chic.")



Anyway, here's the Massey Knakal listing:

Originally built in 1890, the building is approximately 5,703 sq. ft. and is currently configured with 6 apartments. The building has a commercial overlay which would allow the ground floor to be use as retail or commercial. The property also benefits from additional unused air rights and being steps away from Tompkins Square Park.

The building is currently going for $3.95 million. (You can find the 'Mixed-Use Redevelopment Opportunity' PDF here.)

Anyway, just the latest older building with the potential for more floors...

I really miss Waldorf Hysteria too. What a great and unique place it was. I have a painting of a horse and chicken barnyard scene that I purchased there which is a treasure.
