PBN reports that Brown University has sold the iconic Old Stone Bank Building on South Main Street to a private developer (Gold Dome Properties LLC) for $2.14 million. Brown acquired the property in 1995 for $1.15 million. The university had plans to move the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology into the building but decided renovation costs and the costs for a needed multi-story addition were too high.
We will be keeping an eye out for whatever future plans are announced for the building. Gold Dome Properties declined to comment to PBN about what plans they may have for the building.
