Commercial co-op on 10th Street, guarded by Rex, is for sale

An EVG reader shares this info about 432 E. 10th St. between Avenue C and Avenue D, where Chico's mural of Rex, the German Shepherd mix, guards the entry. The current tenant, Expert Finest Company, a carpentry shop, will be closing its doors.

Said the reader: "This ground-floor unit (which includes a basement and a spacious backyard) is uniquely suited for light manufacturing and it is now available. With small buildings constantly being demolished, it's a chance to anchor your business and to build equity instead of paying rent — doggone it."

Here's the listing at Rutenberg Realty NY:

This bi-level commercial co-op is approximately 3,000 square feet and has sprinklers throughout. The ground floor is steel reinforced and column-free. Also, includes private backyard of 500 SF. Currently home to a workshop, the space is ideal for office and all creative uses. No food or bar! Commercial parking is permitted in front of the building.

Price: $1.8 million. (And Rex was adopted by the owners of the space when they moved in during the 1970s.)

I sincerely hope whoever takes the space leaves Rex in place, by now that puppy's image is a true neighborhood fixture.

By backyard, they mean giant sinkhole.
