Public records show that No. 301, built in the late 19th Century by architect Joseph Trench, sold for $8 million in December 2016.

The buyer, listed as Kamo Associates LLC, were in the process of renovation the building. There are approved plans on file with the city for a "horizontal rear extension."

No. 301 is currently occupant free during the gut renovations.
