Above: 1577 Westminster Street was designed by Kite Architects, which won WBNA's design challenge and worked with builders in 2010 to bring this little part of Westminster Street back to life
West Broadway Neighborhood Association seeks a tenant or tenants to occupy its retail space at 1577 Westminster Street, available immediately. Prospective tenants have the option to lease the entire 1,978 square foot space or one of two separate 989 square foot spaces on the building’s ground floor.
The light filled, first floor space had originally been built as a small market and café, but WBNA welcomes a broad range of commercial uses including shops, start-ups, gallery/studio, offices, or other entities. The property features central air conditioning, 1.29kW solar panels to help offset electrical expenses, and additional basement storage.
The mixed-use building, designed by Kite Architects and constructed in 2010, is the result of a collaboration between WBNA and SpurwinkRI, two organizations that came together with the express purpose of creating a place that would contribute positively to the community. WBNA owns the first floor retail spaces, while SpurwinkRI owns and manages the upper floors as affordable housing for individuals with disabilities.
When WBNA purchased it in 2004, 1577 Westminster Street was the site of a former auto repair shop that had been vacant and blighted for years. WBNA acquired the property with an aim to help rebuild a neighborhood main street and provide much needed services to our community.
