Construction recently began on a pair of buildings in the Gold District that will be transformed into space for office and restaurant tenants.
Details: The two buildings at 1513 and 1515 Mint St., across the street from Bardo and Yume, were built between the 1920s and 1940s, according to LPA Urban, the firm that’s partnering with Lischerong Development on the project. They total 12,250 total square feet of adaptive reuse space.
Construction should be complete in the first quarter of 2022, per LPA Urban.
So far, two of the three spaces within the building have been leased. One will house a medical office tenant and the other is for a food/beverage operator, says Mark Miller of LPA Urban, who declined to name the tenants.
Context: The development is also situated atop what used to be the Rudisill Gold Mine, which was established in the 1830s and became one of the most productive gold mines in the area.
- Summit Avenue was once called “Gold Street,” according to the county’s Landmarks Commission.
- Today about 600 apartment units are either planned or under construction along Mint, LPA Urban says.
Also behind the development: ODA Architects (architect), Doerre (contractor) and Bloc Design (civil engineer).
