One of the most visible redevelopment projects in downtown Royal Oak is getting ready to wrap up in November.
The people behind the Historic Loft Building (there's an original name) plan to have two of their tenants moved in post Halloween to the structure at the corner of Harrison and Main streets on the south side of downtown. The two businesses, a medical group and a pharmacy, will occupy most of the ground floor space. The remaining 1,500 square feet on the ground floor is still available.
The second and third floors of the 3-story building are being turned into Class A office space. Each floor has 8,600 square feet of space. The space is being built as loft-style office space with exposed brick and utility lines.
"It's one of the few loft-style office spaces in the downtown area," says Mason Capitani, leasing agent for the Historic Loft Building.
The structure was originally built as a Ford car dealership nearly 100 years ago. It has housed a few other businesses, including a furniture store most recently. Source: Mason Capitani, leasing agent for the Historic Loft BuildingWriter: Jon Zemke
