[Source: Barbara Stocklin, City of Phoenix] — The City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office is working with an historic property owner to locate an investment partner, purchaser, or tenant with the resources to complete an adaptive re-use of the 1917 Lugo Bakery at 415 W. Sherman St. It’s a 2,000 square foot commercial structure, complete with a basement, 1,300 square foot addition, and vacant lot for possible parking. The main parcel is zoned C-2-HP (basically commercial and historic preservation zoning) and the vacant lot is zoned R-4.
The Historic Preservation Office recommends assisting the current or future owner in rehabilitating the structure with HP “threatened building program” bond funds. While “rough” with structural, roof, and storefront reconstruction/modification issues, the building has strong potential as an office, art gallery, sandwich/coffee shop, or bakery (its original use). City staff has a building condition assessment report, preliminary cost estimates, and floor plans.
