Commercial Sale - Athens, GA
Adaptive re-use of historic 1940's cotton loft less than a mile from downtown in the historic Boulevard area, Chase Park Warehouse Complex has been transformed into one of Athens' most recognized adaptive reuse projects over the last 10 years. The 7,300 sf is currently divided into one large space plus 9 large studios plus storage. The 7,300 can be further reconfigured as 2,4 or more spaces and sold separately. See architecturals. Driven by the entrepreneurial spirit, the building has organically grown into an eclectic mix of artists, businesses, and residents, with diverse uses including art galleries and studio space, graphic and web designers, video productions facilities, apartments and condos, trapeze, dance, martial arts, and pilates studios, and even a bike recycling shop. The original post and beam construction is intact and clerestory windows provide ample natural light. This unique historic saw tooth roofed timber frame warehouse was renovated in 2001. Unit 4, approximately 7300 sqft, is available for sale. This space can be subdivided and could be reconfigured completely without compromising structural integrity. The space comprises the 2,200 sqft gallery currently leased to ATHICA, surrounded by large studios containing a large dance studio with a solid maple sprung floor and separate heating/cooling unit and private exterior access, a commercial real estate office, painting studios, a fitness space and two photography studios. All spaces have heat and air conditioning provided by fan coil units. Many units are high bay post and beam spaces with polished concrete floors and clerestory lighting. There is a two story storage area, two bathrooms (one ADA accessible) and two 10' wide overhead coiling garage doors which allow the space to be used in different ways. One of the overhead doors opens onto a wood framed gable-covered porch area/loading dock which can be a hub of activity when used for summer camp activities or the festive scene of many art openings and dance performances.
