The Fort Greene, Brooklyn apartment once owned by The Notorious B.I.G. has hit the market for $1.7 million USD.

According to the New York Post, the late rapper lived in the two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex with his wife, Faith Evans, and her daughter Chyna Tahjere Griffin in 1994. Costume designer Caroline Duncan currently owns the apartment and gave it a gut renovation after she purchased the property in 2011, and it now includes a custom library, walk-through closets and lofted space. The home also features a newly-installed chef’s kitchen, ceilings that measure 12 feet high, an arched window, a brick fireplace and timber beams.

“When I moved in, the basement was just a raw space with concrete floors,” Duncan said. “I framed and put up all the walls and created a bathroom with barn wood and modern finishes, a massive walk through closet to showcase my collection of clothing and accessories, a laundry room and bedrooms.”

“Upstairs had been carved into a series of puzzling small rooms so I did the opposite, and knocked down all the walls to create a lofted open space,” she continued. “I loved the neighborhood, the proximity to Fort Greene Park, the fact that the building is on the Historic Register and had the bones of a true artist’s residence.”
