Kissling Picks Up North Street Mansion

Kissling Interests has added another property to its ever expanding portfolio.  The firm purchased the historic George L. Williams mansion at 249 North Street.  The circa-1877, 9,300 sq.ft. property was purchased for $315,000.  It contains eight residential units.

The chimney stacks are accented with stone, corbels, and panels.  Adding to the high Victorian feel of this home are its three story rounded tower and stick design in the clipped east side gable.

Charlie Frederiksen purchased 249 North Street in September 2007 for today’s sale price, $315,000.  Frederiksen completed exterior renovations and finished three residential units.  The remaining five units are unfinished.  An auction in late-May did not attract a buyer. 

Kissling owns over 950 apartments in the city, many in historic buildings.  The company is planning a top-to-bottom renovation of the nearby Ambassador apartments at 175 North Street.  The circa-1930 landmark is located between Elmwood and Delaware avenues.  The firm is also starting work to create eight apartments in the long-vacant Lake Hotel at 201 West Huron Street and opened the upscale Allentown Lofts project on Virginia Street earlier this year.
