Former Maisonette & Barleycorn's
In May, City Council approved plans to renovate two properties on Sixth Street east of Walnut Street, including the historic Maisonette building. Council authorized a Community Reinvestment Area Tax Exemption Agreement (CRA) with CBD Holdings, Inc., which will be overseeing the renovations and investment which are expected to be upward of $12 million. The former Barleycorn's building is slated to become a four-story bar and nightclub, while the former home of the Maisonette will be used as a restaurant.
The completed project will include a 13,000 square feet restaurant and 16,000 square feet of bar space, and is expected to create 139 temporary construction jobs, 80 full-time permanent jobs, and 85 part-time permanent jobs once construction is completed. The permanent jobs are expected to add about $2 million of additional payroll per year, with the temporary construction jobs expected to add approximately $4.7 million of additional payroll during the 12-month construction period.
