Another early 20th-century building in the Arts District is being revived as office space, according to an announcement by Urbanlime Real Estate.

The latest property, located at 440 Seaton Street, is a three-story brick-and-steel structure which first opened in 1913.  Originally used as a warehouse for a furniture manufacturing company, it is being retrofitted to provide more than 50,000 square feet of creative office and retail space.

The building features approximately 18,700-square-foot floor plates, divisible into spaces as small as 3,000 square feet.  Stacked parking will be offered on site.

Completion of the approximately $15-million project is anticipated in early 2019.

Urbanlime is handling leasing for the property, which is located immediately north of the proposed Arts District Center development and across the street from a boutique hotel planned by Grupo Habita.
