242 fifth avenue is being developed into a four until apartment building

The NoMad neighborhood is getting another small apartment building! Curbed is reporting that a 150-year old building at 242 5th Avenue is being developed by a group called the Pan Brothers.

They intend to have the building include four units as well as a storefront. The plans for the building, which received a Queen Anne style makeover in 1885, will need to pass a hearing at the Landmarks Preservation Commission on April 23.

The developers seek to raise the roof of the building by eight feet. The property is about 12,000 sf and the owners intend to try to preserve the historic nature of the building as much as possible.
