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 full, open floors; and an excavated cellar adds to this unmatched opportunity to create a truly world-class, multi-concept/experiential hospitality or retail powerhouse.
Currently undergoing a full structural and interior restoration/renovation, the building will be primed for its next noteworthy incarnation. Plans drawn include an occupiable modern roof deck outfitted for entertaining; the first and second floors are designed as a mix of hospitality space, including a gracious parlor/ club room and series of boutique guest suites; and work in progress includes a full excavation and lofting of the cellar level to include certified commercial occupancy and outfitting for a full kitchen installation.
The J.W. Allen Building’s French Second Empire style façade is a beacon of position and splendor In an area dominated by brutalist architecture. 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 swimming spots and hiking trails in New York's wild places; practicing Shaolin kung fu; getting lost in virtual crate-digging; or devouring har gow with his daughter Cooper, a 5th-generation New Yorker and John’s raison d'etre.
