The building is expected to reopen in 2017 with 115,000 square feet of leasable space over nine floors, according to The New York Times. No Longer Empty, an art group, is currently utilizing the building and plans to take space after the renovations.

    So glad to see that the beautiful courthouse is still there and going to be refurbished, I lived in the neighborhood (579 E 161st) when I was a young child. . I don’t think the brownstones are there any longer. I definitely remember the courthouse,, it was always very impressive , I live in Wilmington, Del., hope to come back home , just to see the old neighborhood sometime this summer. Thank you Mr. Goldstein, your doing a wonderful thing, my grandparents would be so happy to see your accomplishment, God Bless You! Sincerely , Mrrs. Fran Farmer
