Originally built as a fire hall by architect Howard Constable in 1909, for Hook and Ladder Company 40, it now serves as the Faison Firehouse Theater and Faison’s personal residence.

At 10,400 square feet, the former fire hall is zoned for commercial and residential use.

Faison’s one-bedroom duplex is perched above the theater. The space currently includes a reception, ticket office, basement cafe/cabaret, 130-seat theater, 1,050 square foot dance studio and sun terrace.

There is a generous 10,400 square feet inside.
