Property hunting in an up-and-coming food neighborhood? Do you like Whole Foods? Well then, consider the landmarked Coignet Stone Company Building that sits at the corner of Third Avenue and Third Street at the corner of the Whole Foods construction. The grocery store opens this fall, and this plucky holdout building, which dates to 1873, has a brand-new roof but will require a gut renovation. Pardon Me for Asking has all the details. Unfortunately, the brick building is zoned for retail. [Pardon Me for Asking, Earlier]
