3rd Avenue’s Coignet Stone Company Building Up for Sale


The landmarked, rundown Coignet Stone Company Building on the corner of 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue (and, more importantly, adjacent to the Whole Foods site) is for sale. Pardon Me for Asking spotted a Massey Knakal listing that says, “Great retail opportunity adjacent to the new Whole Foods Market. Landmarked building in prime Gowanus location. The exterior of the building is to be completely restored by Whole Foods (interior requires gut renovation).” As noted by the blog, Whole Foods agreed to restore the corner house in 2005 when it purchased the site. Given that, it might make sense for Whole Foods to buy the building for itself. So far it has put only minimal work into the building’s upkeep. There is no price listed.
