Offered for the first time ever! The spectacular one-of-a-kind 1913 West Rock Theater, designed by noted architect CJ Bailey, is available. This is where working men and women of Westville went to see vaudeville acts and silent films. By 1920, it was eclipsed by the grand movie palaces being built in downtown New Haven, but with help from the City and the Westville community, it was re-imagined as a performance space in 2010. Three years later, Lyric Hall received a Tavern License from the State of Connecticut, which *runs with the land* and can be expanded to a full liquor license. Its second level, consisting of 2000 square feet, can be made into a luxury residential loft or artist studios. Any capital improvements to the building are eligible for Federal Tax Credits worth $40K. An outright grant of $30K is available through the Energy Efficiency Envelope Grant and a $30K matching grant for the East Elevation has been pledged by the City of New Haven through its Facade Improvement Grant Program. Another matching $10K for fixtures through Livable City Initiative is slated, making the grand total $110K. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of New Haven History.
