From Summit Commercial Real Estate:
“1135 Okie Street NE in Ivy City is a 24,500 sq ft industrial building that was purchased by Sweetwater LLC who will be doing business as the newly founded One Eight Distilling Company. The distillery will occupy about 10,000 sq ft on the first floor with the remaining 10,000 sq ft being leased as warehouse space to a wholesaler, which will allow for future expansion. There is also a 4,500 sq ft 2nd floor space that was formerly home to a small church. We are looking for an arts group or other creative use for that space that would provide synergy with the distillery and with whom they could co-host events in the tasting room. They are in the permitting phase now and are planning to start construction in the near future with a goal of opening in spring 2014.”
If you are interested in the 2nd floor arts/studio space you can call Tony Lofrumento at 202-682-9115.
