‘The Antonio’ Nears Completion

Ellicott Development Group’s The Antonio (formerly Baker’s Shoes) building on Main Street near Lafayette Square is nearing completion as workers finish up some minor work. All the new windows have been installed on the Pearl and Main streets sides of the building which is a drastic improvement inside and out. The amount of natural light that comes into the commercial and residential spaces is truly magnificent.

The top four floors have been remodeled for twelve residential units, six of which have already been leased. Three of the tenants have moved into their new apartments, enjoying the nearby amenities and great views of downtown and Lake Erie. In one unit there is a great view where through the industrial windows, a tenant can see almost the full length of Sycamore Street.

BS-1444.jpgSome of the original wood floors were salvaged from the lower floors and put into the units on floors four and five for a more authentic feel. Looking closely at the original floorboards, the stain of time is evident where water had been sitting on nail heads, leeching into the wood, but in a beautiful way. What could be salvaged from the upper floors was reused, but much of it was too damaged due to a hole in the roof.

There have been multiple tenants interested in the commercial spaces in the building however nothing has been signed yet. Those interested in residential or commercial leasing information can visit Ellicott Development’s website.
