723 N. 6th St is a 8,744 Industrial Residential Mixed-Use (IRMX) parcel on the western edge of Northern Liberties. The property has held a large one-story warehouse with multiple retail storefronts. The building was most recently home to a kitchen cabinet refacing operation, a small grocery store, a fitness center, and an office for another business. The property was sold to developers in April for $2.5 million.
In 2016, the former owners were pursuing a 26-unit development for the property with a commercial space and 14 parking spots included. A zoning variance was provisionally granted. Plans shifted in 2018 when use permits were pulled for a 6-story, 45-unit building with artist studios in the basement and on the first floor. We thought this was a much better approach.
