One of Greenwood’s largest buildings in Uptown that recently welcomed the Greenwood Partnership Alliance on the top floor is looking to add some shop space on the bottom floor.
The area that takes the corner and a little more than 2,000 square feet has come under the contract of Town and Country to essentially gut the space and install four storefront windows.
Countybank had been at the location, the corner of Maxwell Avenue and Main Street, for 75 years before moving.
“It’s on a very busy corner. We felt it had great visibility,” said Bob Haynie, an independent broker who manages the Greenwood Building for owner Greenwood Communities and Resorts.
The space, which has two-story ceiling height, will sit as a shell until a retailer looks to sign a lease, which Haynie said is an easy process. An all-inclusive monthly price for a year can be locked in for up to five years.
“We don’t have an intended tenant. We’re just hoping it will make the space more marketable,” Haynie said. “It just didn’t have much appeal for a retail outlet. We’ve struggled to get someone in there.”
The interior look and floor plan can be customized with the expense negotiable, according to Haynie.
Other perks of the building, that has varying-size tenant space available, include visitor and client parking, conference space, gym facility and janitorial services for tenants.
Greenwood Communities also is working to upgrade the security by installing key card and fob readers.
The facelift is underway and should take about four weeks.
“I think people will really start to take notice in this next week when they start removing slate from the exterior for the storefront windows,” Haynie said.
