Agents Suzanne Cheek and Nando Treviño recently discussed Distillery Commons with Insider Louisville. Cheek and Treviño are currently marketing multiple spaces in the historic building, which are ideal for: Brew Pub, coffee shop, restaurant and other retail uses. Horizon Commercial Realty will be listing office space in Distillery Commons as well. According to the article, Ray Schuhmann, owner of Distillery Commons since the mid 1970’s, is seeking to fill ground floor spaces with restaurants to capitalize on the changing neighborhood.
“Ray’s vision is that, with the increasing office users in there (Distiller Commons) the restaurant concepts or brew pub helps really fill out everything,” said Treviño. He said that they are looking for restaurants to cater to tech office tenants and apartment tenants during the day and the Headliners crowds at night.
Cheek discussed the benefits of Distillery Commons with the publication. She said the building’s proximity to the Highlands gives restaurateurs access to the same crowd. She also noted that, unlike many Bardstown Road establishments, it has parking.
“That entire area really is changing,” Cheek added. Cheek represented Cityscape Residential in their acquisition across the street for the new 300 unit Axis Apartments.
