LEASE -1540 S. 2nd St – South Front Container Building
Tribute Properties continues their vision of adaptive reuse with the re-purposing of both dated residential and commercial spaces in what is now known as South Front. This exciting project entails the complete revitalization of an industrial/blighted area into Wilmington’s first true Warehouse District. The commercial phase of the South Front project is located just minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and sandwiched between the beautiful Greenfield Lake Park and Amphitheater and the Cape Fear River. With the 270 converted urban styled apartments and ArtWorks, home to over 60 artists, to the south, there is already a captive audience.
The outstanding design of the Container Building fuses all of the elements found in the South Front project. Located within the heart of Wilmington’s warehouse/industrial/ports district the South Front project, incorporates high ceilings in the primary office space, expansive glass allowing natural light throughout and shipping containers embedded as accent spaces. Private outdoor terraces overlooking one of Wilmington’s most popular hangouts, The Satellite Bar and Lounge.
South Front, Wilmington’s only urban warehouse project, has attracted an unparalleled roster of unique businesses and restaurants. With the wildly successful opening of Vivian Howard’s newest restaurant “Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria” the South Front project has gained even more national attention. Pastry chef, Lydia Clopton of Pinpoint Restaurant fame, has recently opened Love, Lydia, a wonderful bakery/coffee shop & cafe. Celeste Glass opened The Second Glass, an outstanding “wine centric” restaurant. Tamal Dodge, nationally recognized yoga instructor from Los Angles, has opened his east coast location of Yoga Salt as well. Recently opened businesses include an upscale hair salon, optical shop and salt cave. Soon to open, the new 15,000sf New Anthem Brewery and beer garden.
Abundant off-street parking…..free Downtown Trolley located just across the street…..and much more.
