Built in 1909 by renowned architect Howard Constable, this grand limestone structure at 6 Hancock Place was constructed to house Hook and Ladder Company 40. At that time, Harlem was a neighborhood rapidly expanding northward, and the firehouse served the surrounding community for some six decades. In 1999, famed choreographer George Faison purchased the abandoned 10,400 square foot firehouse, and transformed it into a community theater and a grand personal residence. After more than two decades of presenting live theater to the public, and providing hands-on educational opportunities to young people from all over the city, the Faison Firehouse is on the market. Zoned for commercial and/or residential use, 6 Hancock Place features a reception area with ticket booth, basement cafe/cabaret, a fully equipped and intimate 130-seat theater, a 1,050 sq foot dance studio with 13.5-foot ceilings and an adjacent sundeck. There is also a sanctuary room distinguished by stunning stained glass installations, and overlooked by an incredibly enchanting lofted dining room. Both the administrative office and the personal residence gaze out of massive front windows. The firehouse's giant roof deck enjoys views all the way to the Midtown skyline, and the property has 2,000 sq ft of unused air rights. This is a special opportunity for a the buyer to use as a personal residence and theater or music venue, or as an educational facility or recording studio. See photos, floorplan and 3D virtual tour to get an idea of what is on offer here. Contact me today for an in-person tour. (Note: Adjacent vacant lot - with approx. 12,000 sq ft of air rights - may also be purchased via separate sale.)
