Back in May, a penthouse in Nolita’s iconic Police Building—where the police headquarters were once located—listed for $19.5 million. Now, for a fraction of that price, a duplex co-op in the building has just listed, asking $1.925 million.
The 1,100-square-foot property has one bedroom, two bathrooms, 16-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, a large living room, nine-foot-tall arched windows, a dishwasher and Carrara marble breakfast bar in its kitchen, and in-unit washer/dryer.
The landmarked Police Building, which is now home to 44 apartments, was built between 1905 and 1909 by architects Hoppin, Koen, and Huntington. The six-story Beaux Arts building became a NYC landmark in 1978; according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report, Hoppin said that the building was not meant to look like a police station and that he was inspired by the design of City Hall, which he called “the handsomest building on Manhattan island.”
Located at 240 Centre Street, the building is an eight-minute walk to Columbus Park, and near the J and Z trains at Bowery.
Maintenance charges are $2,388/month. Todd Lewin, Michael Rubin, and Gabi Wuhl of Compass have the listing.
