It looks like The Sausage Factory will close, at least in its current location.
Just yesterday, the mixed-use property, which includes two residential units and the 2,500-square-foot restaurant, was listed on Redfin for $4.1 million. The post says that the property will be delivered with the ground-floor restaurant vacant.
We left a voicemail with the Sausage Factory’s owners but haven’t heard back from them yet.
The Sausage Factory, best known for its Italian food and signature pizzas opened in 1968, and has been owned and operated by the Azzolino family since 1972.
The name isn’t meant to be a gay innuendo: it’s derived from the actual sausage factory that was located on the site until the 1940s (the building was built in 1900). Remnants of the old factory, including original meat racks and the black iron doors that previously enclosed the sausage-smoke rooms, can be seen today.
There is a three-bedroom on the floor above the restaurant and a four-bedroom residential unit on the third floor. The apartments reportedly have high ceilings, hardwood floors and abundant sunlight.
According to the real estate listing, “this is a unique opportunity for investors to acquire a mixed use asset with strong upside potential in a fabulous location.”
We’ll keep you updated.
