The iconic Broken Angel House at 4-8 Downing Street in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn has just been sold!
Barrett Design & Development LLC recently purchased the four-story abandoned building, along with the adjacent vacant lot, reported commercialobserver.com.
And for those of you who viewed the abandoned warehouse as little more than a dilapidated eyesore, how does the tune of $4.1 million sound?
The brick townhouse has been a neighborhood landmark since artist Arthur Wood and his late wife, Cynthia, bought the property in 1979. The couple transformed the property through a series of homemade installations and stained glass windows. Later, the property served as the backdrop of Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.
The developer– who recently completed a six-unit condominium project at 123 Fort Greene Place and is currently constructing a mixed-use condo project at 440 Atlantic Avenue– plans to convert the space into condominiums.
The building totals over 10,000 square feet, while the 1,920-square-foot vacant lot allows for 4,000 buildable square feet.
