2216 S Jefferson



Be the first to put your stamp on this newly renovated retail storefront! Each 2214, 2216, and 2218 S Jefferson provide an efficient blank canvas for your new or burgeoning business in the former historic McKinley Theater. Hit the ground running with your business in this pre-finished space, no build-out required! Neighbors in the immediate vicinity include a variety of artists and makers at 2222 S Jefferson, as well as Milque Toast and Fritanga, and the neighborhoods of McKinley Heights and Fox Park offer numerous destinations and attractions.

The 2216 storefront is sandwiched between 2214 & 2218, and a double-door entry makes everything fancier. Historic tile floors and expansive 13’6″ ceilings are complemented by new electric, HVAC, and plumbing systems.

We encourage and give preference to small, independently-owned businesses that cater to a wide range of demographics and will contribute to the eclectic mix of existing small businesses in the area. We don’t rent to predatory businesses such as rent-to-own or payday lending stores that prey upon low-income populations. Additionally, we discourage the use of first-floor storefronts in commercial corridors for service-oriented or office-type businesses, which are better suited to side streets or second-floor office spaces as they do not benefit from or contribute to an increase in foot traffic that is vital to retail and restaurant businesses.

This building was renovated to historic standards as part of the Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program. Compliance with the program requires that these standards be maintained, and as a result, permissible tenant alterations are limited; the space is eligible for retail use only, and is not suitable for use as a bar, restaurant, salon, barbershop, or any other use that would require modification of the existing plumbing plan.

Price is $900/month for rent plus $75/month for water & sewer and $20/mo for use of the facility’s shared trash service. Wireless fiber internet is available for a discounted rate of $45/mo. The advertised rental rate reflects a $75/mo discount for paying rent via ACH / wire transfer on the first of the month.
