Incredible Mixed Use Townhouse located in one of Manhattan’s most desirable Upper East Side retail and residential enclaves! 143 East 62nd Street is a nearly 13-foot wide townhouse that presents an opportunity for an investor or full-time resident to re-imagine this home as a live/work opportunity or to collect rent from the ground floor retail space, keeping the upper floors configured as a single family. Built in 1868, this storied house has a long and fascinating history, having served as many different professional, retail and residential settings over the years. It’s most recent and well known establishment was Tender Buttons, a unique store featuring millions of vintage buttons. The owners of that store became the authorities on antique buttons, and in 1991 published A Collector’s Guide to Buttons and The Button Book. This home has approximately 3,120 interior square feet distributed over its 4 stories and features two outdoor spaces, a ground floor courtyard and a 3rd floor terrace. The building has additional development potential with no Landmark restrictions and approximately 7400 square feet of unused FAR. Moments away from Central Park and accessible by the nearby F, N, Q, R, W trains as well as the Queensboro Bridge. Delivered vacant.
