Another local Federal-style row house is on death watch. This time it’s 355 Grand Street, a two-hundred-year-old building which houses both Flowers Cafe and Vic’s Pizza.
Jenny Lai of Brooklyn-based Interboro Properties purchased the historic corner row-house back in December for $4 million, which is $500K less than the initial ask. Now the gears are in motion to both remove and rebuild a new structure.
According to pending paperwork with the Department of Buildings, the mixed-use replacement building will rise six stories. And it has upper crust written all over it. The proposal includes 4,578 square-feet split between two enormous triplex units; 1,958 square-feet of retail on the ground floor.
355 Grand Street is not designated a city landmark. There are no demolition permits on file just yet, though.
Meanwhile, the decade-running Flowers Cafe is reportedly on the hunt for a new location.
