500 Manistique, commonly known as Manistique Market, is a neighborhood staple in Jefferson Chalmers. Method aims to modernize the market by redeveloping it into a bodega style market with fresh produce and other groceries. The property is only one block away from the Boathouse at 414 Ashland Street.
The redevelopment includes a new commercial kitchen so that hot, prepared foods may be served. The rear portion of the first floor will be turned into one or two retail locations. The second floor is currently a vacant residence which will be renovated. The property needs a new roof, all new HVAC systems, plumbing, exterior and structural upgrades.
Method is partnered with O. & Smythe on this project. The team has engaged local community members in cleaning up the property.
Status: Under Development
