Owner Gives Up on Selling Spike’s Firehouse on Dekalb


After almost four years of trying, the owner of the former firehouse that most famously housed Spike Lee’s production company 40 Acres and a Mule has given up and decided to rent the two residential units out instead. Last time we wrote about it, the 6,000-square-foot building was asking $3,900,000, down from an even $6,000,000 in 2008. What was the problem (other than the price)? Bland interiors and an unfortunate location right across from the hospital entrance would be our guess.
