Pedroza said the full rehabilitation will result in three storefront commercial spaces and 10 new modern residential units above.

The building permit also mentions the relocation of the interior staircases of the building and the bathrooms of the commercial units, as well as the removal of the exterior emergency exits.

Local business interest

Pedroza said the team hopes construction will be completed before June 2023. Pricing has not yet been set for the units, he said.

Local business interest in the storefronts has included a startup bakery in the McKinley Park neighborhood declaring its intention to occupy the corner storefront space.
