A West Village office building with 13,000 square feet of residential development rights just returned to the market after an extended hiatus.

The owner of the 51-foot wide property at 134 Charles Street, Bank of America executive Ciaran O’Kelly, is asking $45 million, and offering plans to convert the building into a proper mansion with four bedrooms, Curbed reported.

The building originally appeared on the market in 2014, when Kelly asked $47.5 million. He bought the 9,000-square-foot office building that currently occupies the property in 2008 for $17 million from painter Jennifer Bartlett.

Kelly created two rental units at the space, asking $33,000 and $17,000 a month respectively, and left two floors as offices.

The building, finished in 1911, was once owned by automobile company heir Walter Chrysler.
