More Change Coming to the Stadium District
More change is on the way for the Stadium District, and it comes with some tantalizing images of what could be.
The latest is the move of Premiere Collision out of the prominent space at the west end of the building housing Stadium Thriftway. According to The News Tribune, the owners of that auto business will be moving the office out of its first floor spot in the pointy end of that building, and relocating to the lot across the street, which they are in the process of purchasing.
The property they plan to purchase is currently owned by Irwin Investment Group, which is also the owner of the Stadium Thriftway property. Property lines are being redrawn, and the owners of Premiere Collision will purchase the middle section of the block across from the grocery store. They plan, according to the TNT, to add a 1,500 square foot addition to the existing building.
The rest of the parking lot will stay with the Irwin Group, which is working with San Diego-based Tourmaline Capital on development plans for the properties. Documents show the remaining parking lot on that block designated for future development as "new 1 story retail."
The parking lot across the street, also owned by the Irwin Group, is planned as a future mixed-use development - 20,000 square feet of retail, with 100 apartments above.
The most immediate part of the picture is enabled by the move of Premiere Collision out of its current space. With that space available, both floors are being advertised for lease. According to the TNT, Titus Will, which currently occupies the space upstairs, is prepared to consolidate its operations to its newer space on Broadway when the time comes.
Documents related to the lease offer show the prime corner unit as a restaurant with a patio for outdoor dining, with the rest of the space broken up into smaller commercial spaces. Phase I is the leasing of 22,450 square feet of retail space in the existing building, Phase II is construction of that mixed-use development across the street. The brochure also suggests plans for the addition of over 50 on-street parking spots.
