The building was originally constructed in 1847 and it was a townhouse. Later in was transformed in a general store and produce market. You can still see the imprints of the past on the building as you can distinguish the words “fine whiskies and wine” written on it.

In the 1930s the building became a sausage factory and, after a while, it got abandoned. The current owner noticed the structure and, although it was obviously very old and in bad shape, it was also noticeable that it had potential.

When renovating and restoring the building, the owner wanted to preserve as much as possible from the old design whenever it could be done. Among the elements that have been preserved we can now mention the old floorboards which have been reused, the beams and the exposed brick. To maintain this old charm, some of the new features have been aged on purpose. Now the triplex has a sophisticated interior design with a very distinct charm.{found on gothamist}.
