The Importer building is ready to import a new business.
You might remember the building from a recent historical photo challenge. It was constructed in 1715, originally part of a 20,000 acre estate. Today, it sits on about three acres at 370 Lancaster Ave., next to the Tri-State Tubular Rivet building, and most recently housed a furniture distributor.
The building is now on the market for sale or lease, being represented by commercial real estate broker Jason Dempsey, the man behind the East Whiteland summer concert series. He said he's proud to be handling the building, which is both historic and cool.
"We wanted to help create a vision for the property and wanted the community to offer some ideas. It has a real cool factor to the space," Dempsey said.
His firm, Dempsey Development and Brokerage, assembled a brochure with artistic renderings of potential uses for the building. One of them is featured in the gallery above.
