Core to Shore Lofts?
For those who don't believe we will see much impact yet in terms of real development from Core to Shore, this post is for you. Because, hearken, you are about to be proved wrong.
As I was checking Google for anything new on C2S I was a little surprised when I came across a Sperry Van Ness commercial listing for a circa 1919 4-story brick warehouse building off Shields that is being pitched as a perfect site for lofts. The 56,000 SF building and adjacent 30,000 SF warehouse is being marketed for the pretty penny of $4.25 million. I've always thought this building would be a good fit for some pretty cool lofts. So I was glad to see that there's some lofty activity going on in the area already.
The listing mentions the pristine site, and how the area is being revitalized for new offices, retail, and lots and lots of lofts. Unfortunately the listing fails to mention the convention center proposed for C2S. Any guesses why?
