A tipster tells us that the three-story building at 165 Smith Street, on the corner of Wyckoff, will be knocked down soon and replaced by a new building. Smith Hanten Real Estate, which has occupied the ground floor for 33 years, is moving down the road to 152 Smith Street. They posted a note about their move, and we’ve included it after the jump.
The Affronti family owns this building as well as 162 Smith Street, where they’ve run Paisanos Meat Market for over 45 years. We spoke briefly with Michael Affronti, but he didn’t want to comment on his family’s plans for the site. The property hasn’t sold recently, and no demolition permits have been filed yet. Current zoning allows for a building as large as 15,000 square feet to be constructed on the site, according to PropertyShark. GMAP
