Here's a chance to gain a foothold in the heart of NYC's most dynamic and fastest growing waterfront neighborhood! Honored with the NYC Grassroots Preservation Award by the Historic Districts Council in 2010, 174 Franklin Street is a beautifully renovated mixed-use townhouse on Greenpoint's most vibrant landmarked retail corridor. This 21-foot wide brick building comprises a lofty floor-through retail space with basement storage below, and two light-filled two-bedroom apartments above. The entrance to the retail space is flanked by the building's original ornate steel columns, and the ceiling heights here soar over 11 feet high. This gorgeous retail showplace is perfect for a wide range of uses, and comes complete with changing rooms, a new bathroom, and windows that look onto the backyard. Upstairs you'll find two beautiful 2-bedroom apartments with original stone fireplace mantles, French doors, renovated eat-in kitchens, and large windows that face out onto the garden below. The top floor apartment is particularly dramatic, with a central skylight that bathes the space in light all day long. The apartments have their own separate entrance to the building and the garden, which is a tranquil and sunny oasis from the bustle of Brooklyn. Pending approval from the City, there's potential to add more living space on the roof, and to install a roof deck with sweeping views. 174 Franklin Street is right in the middle of Greenpoint's best restaurants, bars, boutiques and other amenities, including Greenpoint Beach, WNYC Transmitter Park, Elder Greene, The Pencil Factory, Di An Di, Calexico, The Farmer's market, and McCarren Park. The G train is around the corner and NY Waterway Ferry terminal is a stone's throw away. Just outside your door, the Brooklyn Greenway bike path will take you along the Brooklyn coast all the way to Coney Island and beyond.
