Duplex Bedrooms 1,500 Square Feet Built In 1912

This commercially zoned (B4) property is located just east of Midtown in the rejuvenating Poletown district. Unusually deep parcel features an historic 2-unit (2bed/ 1bath ea.) with wood siding and separate exterior entrances. There is also a large concrete block garage w/attic and a chimney oriented to the adjacent public alley. Fronting the garage towards the house is a concrete block wall surrounding a paved area which formerly served as the base for a greenhouse. Ample garden space with full sun. House and garage require rehabilitation but could potentially be repurposed for use as a coffeehouse, retail shop, etc. By-right uses for B4 zones include art galleries, bake shops, brewpubs, professional offices, restaurant, retail, dance studios, and greenhouses. Adjacent lot is city-owned and maintained by current owner. The property has been used as storage/gardening for an urban farming operation in recent years.
