What can you do with a nearly 6,000-square-foot, worn out warehouse? This Elysian Valley – a.k.a. Frogtown – property at 1859 Blake Avenue could continue to serve as a small manufacturing plant or be converted into a live-work space, according to the listing on Redfin.  Given the stream of artists and designers who have set up shop and homes in Elysian Valley in recent years, it would not be surprising if this property becomes the most recent Blake Avenue industrial building to start hosting art openings and open studio tours. Says the listing:

Central location in up-and-coming artists’ community at unbelievable price – check it out and imagine the possibilities! Annual Art walk has grown exponentially over the last few years – get in to this scene while you can!

What is this unbelievable price? Answer: $899,000.

  1. Interested parties in properties which were once manufacturing and/or commercial should do their due diligence prior to buying. Historical commercial/industrial use brings on the potential for underlying (read: expensive) environmental issues when changing use to residential.
