The residential units consist of one (1) one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, (6) two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments, and one (1) three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment.
For the Garden Theater, the building will be converted into a restaurant space consisting of 4,200 sqaure feet and the upper floor office space consisting of 2,000 square feet. The construction of both the Masonic and Garden Theater projects will commence this month. The developmental plans for Bradberry Apartments are in the works to be part of the overall Garden Theater block redevelopment.
