4 St. Mark's Place, the landmarked building whose first owner in 1833 was Alexander Hamilton’s son, has a new owner.
The building between Second Avenue and Third Avenue arrived on the market last fall for $11.9 million.
Since then, the longtime commercial tenant here, Trash & Vaudeville, moved to 96 E. Seventh St. in March. The four free-market apartments on the floors above are apparently tenant-free now as well. (Which might explain this.)
The Commercial Observer (H/T Curbed!) had the news of the deal:
Since it has no tenants, “it is in effect a blank canvas, offering the buyer a unique opportunity to renovate the building and realize a tremendous amount of upside,” Eastern Consolidated’s Ron Solarz...
No word just yet on who the buyer is. (The deal hasn't hit public records yet.) Trash & Vaudeville owner Ray Goodman was a minority partner in the ownership of the building.
Also known as the Hamilton-Holly House, 4 St. Mark’s Place was built in 1831 and designated a New York City landmark in 2004. Col. Alexander Hamilton Jr. bought the townhouse in 1833 and shared it with his wife, Eliza, his widowed mother, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, her daughter Eliza Hamilton Holly, and son-in-law Sidney. Sidney and Eliza went on to open the first bong shop (just for minced tobacco) on the block.
