Biggie Smalls’ Former Fort Greene One-Bedroom Loft Sells Above Ask for $2 Million

With a price and renovation that were far from timid, Brooklyn rapper Biggie Smalls’ one-time Fort Greene loft has sold in a flash for over ask.

The condo at 159 Carlton Avenue traded for $2 million Tuesday, about three months after being listed in September for $1.7 million. Staged as a two-bedroom, the one-bedroom pad has an Yves Klein blue library, fireplace, two bathrooms and a finished cellar.

Built in 1888 as the Feuchtwanger Stable, the red brick Romanesque Revival building was designed by architect Marshall J. Morrill and is on the National Register of Historic Places. After serving as a candy factory and car repair shop over the years, the building was converted to condos in 1988.

The New York Post was the first to report of sale, which has not yet hit public records.
