3,092sf circa 1871 Carriage House in Murray Hill, Manhattan
The Jonathan W. Allen Stable Building is an historic, singular two-story carriage house built in 1871. Two ornate side entrances flank a commanding central carriage entrance with solid oak double doors; an airy rooftop caps two renovated floors; and a finished cellar level adds to this unmatched opportunity to create a truly world-class, multi-concept/experiential hospitality or retail powerhouse.
Nearing completion of a full structural and interior restoration/renovation, the building will be primed for its next noteworthy incarnation. The first and second floors are designed as a mix of hospitality space — including a gracious parlor/clubroom and a series of boutique guest rooms with skylights and luxury shower bays; a lofted cellar level with commercial occupancy; and a finished roof deck with views of the courtyard plaza below.
In an area otherwise dominated by a stark architectural aesthetic, The J.W. Allen Building’s French Second Empire style façade is a beacon of position and splendor. Bordered by the Chrysler Building, the U.N. Headquarters, numerous consulates and diplomatic missions, and serviced by the 4, 5, 6, 7, and S trains at Grand Central Terminal, this property presents a preeminent opportunity to craft a legacy of elegance in repose — a space conceived for international renown as a confluence of style and fellowship.
John’s SF Bay Area upbringing taught him the value of collaboration and communication across all cultures and inclinations. At age 14, he dove into what would become an award-winning service career — developing a passion for hard work, professional courtesy, and profound community through working and managing at some of the nation’s most seminal hospitality institutions; including Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse and Craig Stoll’s Delfina. John’s appetite for NYC commercial real estate was galvanized by early efforts that brought value not just to his property owner clients, but to the greater business communities and neighborhoods he serves. Employing an intrinsic understanding of NYC’s most progressive markets and the operators that make them world-renowned, John is thrilled to reorient the commercial brokerage experience through a lense of integrity, savvy, and service; ushering in dynamic growth and leading-edge development with smart work that’s uniquely in-step with the industries and business environments that make New York the criterion for cosmopolitan enterprise. When not in the field or at his desk, John can be found exploring hidden lakes and lost trails in New York's wild places; practicing Shaolin kung fu; getting lost in virtual crate-digging; or devouring har gow in all the old familiar places.
