The 19th century former police station at 4302 4th Avenue in Sunset Park has been flipped and is now on the market for $6,000,000, according to a story in DNAinfo. The crumbling Romanesque Revival style building on the corner of 43rd Street has been decaying for years, despite its landmark status, and the LPC issued a “failure to maintain the building,” otherwise known as “demo by neglect” to the longtime owner, the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association.
That group is still listed as the owner on public records, but TerraCRG, which is marketing the property, and a spokeswoman for the LPC told DNAinfo the site had recently sold.
The property is being marketed as a potential conversion to apartments. It consists of a two-story building with 5,952 square feet and a three-story building of 14,040 square feet. They require a gut renovation as well as exterior restoration, according to the story. The property also has 14,567 square feet of air rights.
We hope this is the start of better days for this corner.
