The ground-floor retail space on the east side of the building will be built to accommodate a 2450-square-foot restaurant, and the western side will be partitioned to accommodate three businesses in roughly 1000- to 1200-square-foot spaces.
“We’ve had a lot of positive leasing action and I’m encouraged by the types of businesses that have expressed interest in joining our community,” said Del Vecchio. “The ‘interested parties’ list that we’ve built through our website for the residential units is already longer than the number of units we’ll have available.”
The Bridgetown will offer a mix of 50 units from studios to three-bedrooms with eleven spaces for tenant parking. The project is slated for completion in July and leasing should begin in May.
In the Roseway neighborhood, primary construction will wrap up this month on Del Vecchio’s renovation of the Goodrich Building and tenant improvement work will begin soon. Del Vecchio partnered with Josh Bean of Doug Bean & Associates to restore the Sieu Thi grocery to its former glory as a mid-century architectural gem, designed in 1956 by Burton Goodrich, an understudy of Frank Lloyd Wright. The partnership purchased the property in June for $540,000.
The western half of the building has already been leased to a veterinary clinic and negotiations are underway for a restaurant or bar to lease the eastern half of the space – with the dramatic, circular entrance.
“The Roseway neighbors and businesses have been great to work with,” said Del Vecchio. “I’m excited to see how this strip of Sandy Boulevard is evolving and I believe our project will have a positive impact on that development.”
