Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years.

One of the lower priced SRO buildings that sold last year in Hamilton Heights appears to be coming along with its renovations. Number 505 West 144th Street is located just west of Amsterdam Avenue and now has new windows in place as can be seen in the lower photo. So what is going on with this townhouse? Based on DOB permits filed, the building used to be a 10-unit SRO but the new owners are now converting the home into a 4-family residence. This appears to have been an estate sale and the new owners are based in New Jersey so this might eventually be a flip or rental property.
