Overview / Comments

Incredible opportunity to own a piece of Historic Wilmington in the heart of downtown. This 3 story, 7175 sqft (interior) brick building, built in 1910 boasts knockout rooftop views of the Cape Fear River and downtown Central Business District. This prime location yields high foot traffic to support two existing first floor retail tenants (real estate office/tattoo parlor), and a variety of future use options for the floors above.

Historic character is maintained throughout the building including exposed brick walls, original wood floors still intact in the majority of the building. The first floor has high ceilings with original stamped tin tile and arched beams. The second floor is built out as offices (9 in total) and features a greeting room with iconic streetscape views. The third floor is an open space, with exposed brick walls from front to back; a blank canvas awaiting its grand concept. The roof top experience offers spectacular views of downtown Wilmington and the river . The possibilities are endless with tons of value add potential.

This building is a “certified historic structure” and qualifies for Historic Preservation Tax Credits.
