A longtime eyesore in Midtown may soon be redeveloped and turned into a mix of restaurants and retail pending a sale to Northline Development.
The former service station, garage and car dealership at 308 NW 10 consists of three adjoining buildings, the oldest of which was built in 1923. Tenants included a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership from 1932 to 1942, and in later years a tire shop.
The property has been empty and abandoned for the past two decades, and the owner, Ahmad Bahrereini, was cited more than a half-dozen times for leaving inoperable vehicles in the property's front lot.
Kayla Baker, managing partner of Northline Development, said she expects to close on a purchase contract with Bahrereini within the next two months.
