Located at 1400 North Howard Street sits 78,000 sq. ft warehouse that was once on track to being converted into single family homes. However, a recent $9.45 million deal was struck by Asana Partners and the plans quickly flipped. Now the space has been zoned for retail and office complex.
According to real estate agent Kyle McShane of Rising Real Estate the warehouse will feature a large indoor parking garage that will be accessed from Jefferson Street, so local residents will not have to worry as much about the parking situation. “We were able to peep into the building and noticed that the interior buildout is also underway. The different spaces that are denoted on the floor plan for the project are being framed out. Large skylights line the ceiling and bring a bunch of natural light into the building. The floor looks freshly leveled. High ceilings with the original metal trusses give the space a great feel,” McShane states.
According to Rising Real Estate the mini golf bar Puttery plans on taking on 20,000 sq. ft. to create three 9 hole mini golf courses. The Puttery sates on their website that they put “a modern spin on putting, which fuses high-tech gameplay with craft cocktails and curated cuisine.” “However, Puttery will need ZBA approval to move forward as eating / drinking establishments and assembly / entertainment uses are not allowed by-right at this location,” Rising Real Estate adds.
As previously stated, the original plans for the area included demolition of the warehouse and the construction of 52 townhomes and 4 mixed-use buildings, now the new project will bring commercial business to the the Howard Street corridor.
