The Lischerong Development Group, in conjunction with Mark Miller and James Craig of LPA, will redevelop five buildings into 27,000 square feet of mixed-use space at the corner of South Mint Street and Summit Avenue.
“This area of town, especially the intersection of Summit Avenue and South Mint Street, is the perfect opportunity to blend the success, stature and walkability of South End with a hip and artistic feel of the Gold District,” Nick Lischerong, Principal at Lischerong Development Group, told the Agenda.
Location: All five buildings are in a row on Mint, right next to Max & Lola — caddy corner to Yume Sushi and Bardo. And Pasta & Provisions and Unknown are right down the street — it’s a hot spot. Nik is “bullish” on the area, known as The Gold District.
What the leasing agent says: “South End has officially graduated from a weekend destination to a true urban neighborhood filled with nationally recognized restaurants, retailers and corporate headquarters, all supported by a booming multifamily market” James Craig, head of leasing this project at Lat Purser & Associates, told the Agenda.
Building addresses/size: The buildings are at 1513, 1515, 1525, 1529 and 1537 South Mint Street and range between 3,500 and 7,700 square feet. Instead of being torn down they’ll be re-designed/developed.
Why it matters: “The Gold District also has the infrastructure to create a meaningful retail and office market within a short walk of the heart of South End and Wilmore. These are really unique buildings and are positioned very well along an increasingly busy stretch of Mint Street. That offers a lot of possibilities for us on the leasing front,” James said.
Timing: Look for this to be finished Q2 2020.
