518-520 Commerce

Craig Slawson, of Colorado-based Slawson Energy, has purchased three buildings along Commerce Street. Plans have recently been released from architectural firm El Dorado Inc., which include 16 residential units and commercial space. The three structures total 33,750 square feet.

The original warehouses, built in the 1930s, were operated by the US Supply Company. The buildings hold freight elevators, loading docks and skylights from the previous building functions. Developers want to maximize these architectural details with slight alterations for more current use. The freight elevators will become a stairwell and a passengar elevator. The original loading docks will be altered for natural lighting and patios for first floor tenants.

The southernmost building is to be used for leaseable commercial spaces, left open for tenant flexibility. The north building will hold 16 residential spaces, two of which will be dual-story units with protected garage parking. Other parking will be along the northern side of building.

The exterior design of 518-520 Commerce will promote connectivity with neighboring buildings and increased foot traffic for Final Friday.
