More historic treasures keep popping out during construction at Ridgeway Square, 719 Marshall Street.

Old Garage signage is uncovered with power washing.

Owner John Cush is starting his Phase 2 work on the buildings. Phase 1 was five luxury condos complete with on-site parking, elevator, security system and vintage-look appliances. Phase 2 will be a premier 4,000SF retail/commercial space on the ground floor (with 18′ ceilings in some areas), and two rental apartments on the top floor that will range in size from 900 to 1100SF.

Cush is excited about the apartments and thinks they will be popular, and we agree. Apartment dwellers will have all the benefits of the condos- security, on-site parking and elevator use, at a cost of about $1.25 PSF per mo. ($1,125 and $1,375, respectively).

The apartments will have a view of the Once in a Millennium Moon mural.

Off a hallway in the rear of the building will be Cush’s own living space. He is already making plans about placement of walls and interior rooms. He will also have a cool roof deck outdoor space off the back of his ‘man pad.’

COVID-19 issues have slowed the rehab efforts, but John is hopeful the apartments will be ready to lease by March of 2021. The downstairs commercial space should be available somewhat sooner. Meanwhile, two of the condos are available now for purchase. For more information or a showing, contact ReALTA Real Estate Services.
