Local developer Beacon Partners recently purchased six single-story buildings near the corner of South Boulevard and Clanton Road (located directly behind the LYNX Scaleybark Station). They’re calling the cluster of brick buildings — totaling in 52,690 square feet of mixed-use space — LoSo Village.
“Demand is strong for adaptive reuse. Each building is unique and has its own story to tell.” said Pete Kidwell, director of industrial investments for Beacon Partners. “We like the synergy of having multiple buildings to touch within a confined geography. We have plans to commission multiple murals to tie everything together.”
Beacon will repurpose the old buildings into cool spaces for creative office and retail. The first building will be completed by the end of this year.
It’s a cool project.
Don’t forget: LoSo Village complements the adjacent LoSo Station, a 500,000-square-foot mixed-use project that Beacon Partners is currently marketing.
“The LoSo area has already attracted extremely popular breweries and restaurants, and we expect LoSo Village to follow suit,” said Charles Thrift, founder of Thrift Commercial who is heading up retail leasing for LoSo Village. “Companies will also find that it offers the ideal space and location for their showrooms.”
Expect LoSo Village to be walkable and have an eclectic mix of tenants like restaurants, breweries, showrooms, offices and more. Renderings below (courtesy of Merriman-Schmitt Architects and Beacon) are conceptual and may change based on actual tenant mix.
