The recently renovated elevator building is a 28-foot-wide limestone mansion and was designed by architect Rudlophe Daus. Zoning allows about 28,000 square feet of total development. The property was listed in June by Fred Williams of Sotheby’s International Realty but appeared in CoStar last month because the property is zoned for commercial use as well.

A development site at 62-64 East 34 Street is on the market for $14 million in Murray Hill. The property has 4,212 square feet of land, with 36,897 square feet of air rights for future development. The current property is a six-story elevator building, which was renovated in 2009. There are 13 residential units, nine of which are fair market, and the commercial tenant on the second floor has a demo clause, which makes the property ideal for a redevelopment project. Independent broker Jay Schlossberg is the listing agent.

A Class B warehouse building is on sale for $13 million at 365-379 Bond Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The warehouse, which was built in 1938 and renovated in 1998, sits on a corner lot of 40,000 square feet, encompassing an entire city block. It is being marketed as a prime waterfront development opportunity near the Gowanus Canal but may also suit an end user. Robert Durante of Cross and Brown Realty is handling the sale.
