Smith Street between Warren and Baltic Streets
191 and 193 Smith Street
191 Smith Street, currently housing Ceol, an Irish pubjust sold in May for $18,500,000 to a group of investors to make way for a new two-story retail building, the owner of two properties on the same block must have decided to put them on the market as well.
The two contiguous buildings at 191 and 193 Smith Street are being sold through Smith Hanten Real Estate for $13,000,000. Both buildings are 25 feet wide, which would represent a total of 50 feet of commercial frontage on a high foot traffic street, along a subway line.
Number 191 currently houses Ceol, an Irish pub that has been at this location for quite a number of years. Spice, a Thai restaurant just moved into number 193 this past January.
One has to wonder what all of this will mean to the small one story building and the deli at 189 Smith Street. How long until it, too, will be sold and probably demolished.
This particular block was rezoned as part of the Carroll Gardens contextual rezoning and is zoned R6B with a commercial overlay and a 50 feet hight limit.
It is safe to say that Smith Street between Warren and Baltic will look very different very soon.
The façade at Number 195 Smith Street was altered just recently.
