Buy Me: 1234 9th Street
Drew reports that the former vending machine warehouse located at 1234 9th Street (pictured above)--directly across from the Convention Center and to the right of Wagtime--recently went on the market. Offered through McBride Real Estate Services, Inc., this property consists of 2 parcels of land: one 8000 sq ft parcel fronting 9th Street on which the above-pictured warehouse sits and one 6000sq ft parcel of land behind the warehouse and across the alley (bearing the address 922-924 N Street) on which a shell of a warehouse sits. Buyers must purchase both parcels, and the collective asking price is $4.6 million.
Wouldn't the 9th Street space make for a neat pool hall, like Carpool? Or maybe an Open City/Tryst/Diner/Busboys and Poets type of place, with garage-like front windows that open up in nice weather? Ahh, the possibilities are endless. It would also be great to add a few stories to it for additional residences in the area, some of which could front Blagden Alley.
