Versatile Space in Historic Downtown Springfield Buck’s Building For Lease
Coldwell Banker Commercial Devonshire Realty (CBCDR) is excited to exclusively offer versatile space in an historic building in Downtown Springfield, IL.
The space was most recently a financial advisor office, which they remodeled in 2015. The current layout consists of a reception area, an executive office, a private office, a break room, access to a 3-compartment sink, handwashing sink, and mop sink, a mechanical, equipment and supply room, and 2 ADA-compliant restrooms. The space still has the original wood floor and tin ceiling, and the exposed brick wall adds to the traditional Downtown building appearance. The flexible layout makes it suitable for a range of different businesses, and the presence of two established businesses on-site provides additional foot traffic and visibility.
The Buck’s Building is a 3-story commercial structure located on the north side of the Old State Capitol Square in Downtown Springfield. It is a contributing structure in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), which adds to its appeal for tenants who value historic preservation. The character and charm of the Buck’s Building was preserved by the current owner who operates two businesses on-site – King Technology, an IT consultant, and Identi-Check, an employer background screening company. The variety of previous businesses – law office, dance studio, photography studio, hat store, clothing store, restaurant, and financial advisory office – makes the space adaptable for many different uses.
The location offers access to a large pool of potential customers and employees, with major employers (19,210 State & City Government employees and 12,121 Hospital & Clinic employees) and historic landmarks (Governor’s Mansion, Old & New State Capitol, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum, and Lincoln Nat’l Historic Site) nearby. The dense population and household numbers in the surrounding area serve as a customer base.
