Are you that commercial buyer that has the concept for a commercial space with a water view in Key West? If so, the new listing for the commercial property at 1970 North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West may be the property you have been looking for. The listing agent describes this Bank Owned property this way:
"Bank Owned property on the Boulevard in Key West FL! Faces the Gulf of Mexico across the street from Garrison Bight. Currently licensed for 70 seats (may qualify for up to 150 seats). Most recent use was Bait and tackle store in one space and 70 seat restaurant upstairs overlooking the Gulf. Inside and outside seating. There is covered storage at ground level of approximately 1,500 SF. Two buildings attached totaling 3,839 SF on a 15,472 SF lot. Endless possiblities on this highly visible building on N. Roosevelt Blvd. Large, lighted sign could be restored (pole is there with power to it)."
This property has parking on site as well as free municipal parking nearby. It has been totally refurbished with new metal roof, electrical, and plumbing with 3 new bathrooms. It is zoned for all commercial uses at the busiest intersection in Key West directly on Roosevelt Blvd. The site enjoys awesome water views of the Key West City Marina. The snazzy Key West Yacht Club is located across the street to the east.
Several years ago this property was a very successful locals bar and restaurant. I was told the lower level was also a drive-thru liquor store. That owner sold the property and went on to other ventures.
The most recent venture as a bait & tackle shop and restaurant was not the best "concept" I have heard of. A new owner may want to change the usage from restaurant to something quite different. The asking price of $995,000 or $259 per sq ft makes this property worthy of consideration as a potential renovation and conversion to a different use. I am not sure the existing "ramps" work for a restaurant or any other venture. If the property were converted to offices or mixed use, an internal elevator could be installed and that would permit ADA compliance and also clean up the cluttered exterior appearance.
There is additional parking in the rear where there is also a storage area with garage door.
