While we often take a look at the residential real estate market around these parts, we thought it might make for an interesting read if we pointed out some notable commercial real estate opportunities in the area. For a good idea is a good idea when it comes to starting a business, but where are you going to put it?
569 Quay St. (Port Huron): $279,000
When you talk about commercial real estate, you talk about location. This 1,500 sq. ft. free-standing commercial building has that and then some. Within blocks of St. Clair Community College and McMorran Place, an enterprising entrepreneur would have plenty of potential customers buzzing about nearby. An uninterrupted view of the Black River allows for a business to catch the attention of passing boaters, too.
1217 Washington Ave. (Port Huron): $299,000
When it comes to adaptive reuses of historic buildings, old churches have to be one of the more popular sites around these days. All across the country, you’ll find recording studios, breweries, bed-and-breakfasts, and more, and all within the beautiful architecture of a historic church. The old Washington Avenue United Methodist Church is currently up for sale, and for a historic building at 5,600 sq. ft. for less than $300,000, it presents the opportunity for something creative in a beautiful brick building built in 1900.
611 Broadway St. (Marine City): $165,000
Located just blocks from the increasingly popular downtown Marine City, this two-story mixed-use building includes a second floor apartment above the ground floor retail space. What’s more, there is a 1,200 sq. ft. outbuilding perfect for storage. A house next door is included, and though it’s scheduled to be demolished, that means the business will become a corner parcel--and a 10,000 sq. ft. one, no less. The current retail tenant, a print shop, is planning on moving.
