Description

A once-in-a-generation opportunity to acquire the Olde Kensington Engine #15 Firehouse, one of the most unique and beautiful historic buildings in Philadelphia. Designed by city architect John Molitor and constructed in 1926, this former firehouse is an example of the Romanesque revival style popularized in many of the city+GGs most celebrated buildings. The firehouse was decommissioned in 1971 and has been used for varying commercial uses since that date. Owning this jewel property provides a buyer a flexible canvas for usage; currently set up as two commercial units, with an untenanted office use on the ground floor and basement and an additional office use on the 2nd floor. The property can easily be converted into a single commercial use or a single or multi-family residential use as-of-right. A large roof deck is accessible via the firehouse+GGs tower providing sweeping views in all directions; development rights allow for enclosure/ expansion of this roof space for a 3rd floor. The property+GGs location sits on the seam of Olde Kensington and Fishtown, two of Philadelphia+GGs most dynamic neighborhoods. Nearby retail businesses include Stephen Starr+GGs LMNO, Cook N Solo+GGs Lazer Wolf, Goldie and Lilah, Honeygrow, Suraya, Evil Genius Beer Company, the International, and the forthcoming Kalaya Thai Kitchen. Multi-family development is booming in all directions. Located in Federal Opportunity Zone.
