This building, with its large footprint, was built as a brick stable in the early 20th century.

The suitable uses include large medical, school or office.

The slab to slab ceiling heights throughout the building range from 10’ 10” in the cellar to 13’ 5” on the ground floor and approximately 12’ on the upper floors.

If desired, the trusses can be removed, and the columns reinstalled at the ground level. Windows are located at the front and rear of the building as well as along the East and West wall at varying levels depending on the heights of neighboring buildings.
