Overview / Comments

Historic Meeker’s Hardware building on the market for the first time! The building has served Danbury as a tool, garden and feed supply store since 1885 until it closed in 2013. This a truly historic building with amazing architectural touches in need of an owner who can revitalize the property. The first floor is setup for retail with plenty of storage in the back of the building, including a loading dock, while the second floor is currently unused with lots of potential. The building sits within Danbury’s opportunity zone which will provide tax benefits for any buyer that develops the unused space. This represents a great opportunity for an investor or an owner/user who wants to use the building for their business.

The building has 12,444 sf of useable space across 2 floors. A current tenant occupies approximately 5,000 SF of the first-floor retail and storage with a loading dock. The tenant is month to month which provides flexibility for any new buyer. The upstairs can be developed into office space or apartments for income producing potential. Unique to downtown, the building has it’s own paved parking lot with additional street and garage parking available nearby.

The City Center District is continuing to see growth with more residential apartments under development on the previous News Times property. The Meeker’s Hardware building sits right across from the Danbury train station and just blocks from Danbury City Center Green.

The property is for sale at $749,500 with yearly taxes of $15,790. Please call Chris Cosio at 203-524-8635 for more details and to setup a tour today!
