This existing building in old downtown Mooresville was empty and the owner wanted to put a restaurant on lower level and key man offices on second level. The building had an exiting elevator and two stairs. The back stair had to be replaced to meet code and the front stair is existing but renovated. Sprinkling the building was required to provide a non separated mixed use condition. This was a savings, floor rated separations would have been required otherwise which would have been more costly.
An Asian Grill & Bar, J.J. Wasabi's, located on lower level and is a huge success. The second floor is Old Downtown Business Center with 18 Key-man offices, central reception, two conference rooms, and restrooms; filled up within months due to the small office demand in the market.
Original wood floors, double wythe brick wall exposed in the interior, and exposed structure in the restaruant contribute to the warmth and charm of the restaurant seating and key man offices.
