The Corner Building Wants Another Bar and Restaurant Downtown

Main Street in the Arts District is becoming the new Fremont Street.

Yet another bar or restaurant is headed to the Arts District section of Main Street if local developer the Metroplex Group succeeds in luring the right tenants to The Corner Building.

The former Corner Store Furniture Co. is being redivided to fit as many as 10 businesses into its 10,784-square-foot space. The 1945 vintage property, with a pleasingly curved front entrance, is imagined to host a juice bar, a restaurant, a bar or all three when work is finished later this year.

Interior rental spaces range in size from 2,942 square feet for the anchor tenant, down to 648 square feet. An outdoor patio backs on to a rear alley, shared with neighbor Buffalo Exchange.

Part of the redevelopment team is "architect and design advisor" Robert Gurdison of D!G Design Group. Gurdison is currently working on the interior of forthcoming tavern ReBar, a few steps away on the same block, plus he provided the look of Hop Nuts Brewery, which sits across the street.

One of the project's renderings created to help visualize the space for investors and tenants features a Starbucks as the anchor occupant. Another prominently imagines it will be local coffee house chain Sambalatte. No word has been released if Sambalatte is interested in heading to this stretch of downtown. Either java purveyor would place them almost directly opposite another locally created coffee shop Makers & Finders, which arrived in this neighborhood in December 2014.

The Corner Building expects to be operational by summer.
