The 2000 block of Trenton Avenue contains a bit of an odd mix, with one side of the block lined with houses built in the last half dozen years, and the other side (mostly) home to relics to the neighborhood's industrial past. Here's what we mean:
If one of the homes pictured above were available for sale it wouldn't make for much of a story. Good thing we're telling you about an old warehouse instead.
2045 Trenton Ave. has actually been on the market a couple of months at a list price of $699K but we only noticed it this week (sorry folks). Looking at some historic maps, a chair manufacturer made its home here many moons ago, and we're pretty sure the building was intially built as a hosiery mill. Now, it's available for you to turn into the former warehouse of your dreams.
According to the listing, the building has roughly 10K sqft of interior space. As you can see in the photos, the space is broken up between a smaller structure on Trenton Avenue and a larger structure that's set back from the street. The property has about forty feet of frontage on Trenton Avenue, and goes back about a hundred feet. On its face, the property looks like a slam dunk for adaptive reuse, and due to its size and shape we're not sure that any other approach would be practical. You can see in the image above from the listing, the larger building has some amazing bones, and a residential or commercial reuse would have the potential to incorporate some amazing architectural details.
So… wanna buy a warehouse on Trenton Avenue? Today's your lucky day.
