CASE STUDY

Strategically located in the emerging area of the Arts District, south of 7th Street and neighboring several key neighborhood assets and popular destinations, 2020 E 7th Place & 2045 E Violet Street are two industrial buildings, a concrete tilt-up produce building built in 2002, and a vintage brick warehouse built in 1941, that total 42,748 of building on 72,208 square feet of land.

Knowledgeable of a strained business partnership, The Borman Group facilitated the acquisition of a 50% interest buy out and new joint venture partnership for the buildings at 2020 E 7th Place & 2045 E Violet Street in July 2014.

The Borman Group repositioned the asset by separating the two parcels. 2020 E 7th Street was leased to an organic produce wholesaler and will be entitled for 300 multifamily units. 2045 E Violet Street was fully upgraded from a blighted warehouse to a Class A creative office building for a single tenant. Work included converting loading bays into new steel window and door assemblies, replacing dilapidated building elements with eco friendly materials, the creation of a highly functional outdoor space and a full mechanical upgrade. The current user is a single tenant in the fashion design business, Splits 59.
