Property Description

This amazing property is now available In the heart of Reading's Commercial Core. There are so many possibilities for this building. As you look through the photos and watch some video, you'll see everything from the beautiful marble and mirror entrance, professional office spaces, to warehouse / manufacturing space and a truck sized freight elevator that goes from the basement to the 3rd floor! (More photos to come that will include views of the four amazing apartments, a retail store, and a finished room in the "front basement"!) From 5th St, you can enter the stair way to the apartments or the entrance to the retails store, and a little further up are two more 5th St entrances giving access to the gallery, offices and interior parking. The entrance to the gallery and offices is spectacular, with marble and mirrored walls, open stairway to the mezzanine offices... some on the first floor and a larger suite on the second floor. On to the "unfinished spaces", there are three stories of block built warehouse / manufacturing space with a garage entrance opening up onto Madison Ave. Inside you'll see ground level parking for about 10 cars, and access to two large upper floors where hair color was made back in the 80's for Renbow USA, an international corporation. Wrapping it up, we have to mention the large rear basement, also accessible from the oversized freight elevator. Here you'll see the "large gas heater".... it's newer and in good working order. System details / brand available , the label on the heater is the "last photo" in the photo library. Set up your showing now! Be a part of Reading's revitalization and bring this property back to life!
