The historic Borger Building in Walker’s Point could soon feature new loft-style apartments and commercial space under redevelopment plans by its owner.
Rob Chandler, who leads the investor group that owns the building at 235 S. Second St., said the renovated building will feature 12 apartment units. He’s also in talks with a potential restaurant user for the ground-floor space.
The $3.7 million redevelopment effort entails “a full remodel from top to bottom,” Chandler said. The existing garage on the back of the building will be removed, and an elevator and stair tower will be built in its place. Construction work is to start this spring.
