The property is located in the heart of Venice, in the Sestiere Castello, close to Piazza San Marco, but far from the main tourist itineraries. The property, for its location, is ideally suited for redevelopment in residential homes or a tourist-accommodation structure.
The property is located in the easternmost part of Venice, on the border with the Sestiere Cannaregio (north west), the Sestiere San Marco (south west), along Fondamenta San Lorenzo, on the Rio dei Greci. The building, a part of the original Palazzo Ziani, dating from the seventeenth century, consists of two adjacent buildings that have been joined together, on four floors above ground, for a covered surface of 1,220 m². The listed building (former Legislative Decree 42/2004) is currently free. The current general town planning scheme allows for private uses, with certain limits for commercial and production activities.
The property is located in the heart of the Municipality of Venice (264,579 inhabitants), which is the capital of the province (858,198 inhabitants) and the Veneto region (4,927,596 inhabitants), along Fondamenta San Lorenzo, an area that runs north to south connecting Riva degli Schiavoni, overlooking the southern basin, and Fondamenta Nuova that overlooks the northern basin and Isola San Michele. The building is 600 metres from Piazza San Marco, in an extremely central but quiet area, because it lies a certain distance from the main tourist itineraries, and only 500 metres from the vaporetto (San Zaccaria stop).
