Lapham at Mathewson
This little gem of a space tucked away on the back side of the Lapham Building is almost as tall as it is wide. The ceiling height is tremendous. Perfect for a small retail shop, cafe or office, this unit has brand new storefront, tons of natural light and a quaint side street location. Located diagonally across the street from Ellie’s Café and Berri Restaurant.
Lapham & adjacent Wit Building have been combined into one building with the second floors connected to provide 9,000 square feet of flexible commercial office space. The ground floors will be built with space for up to 4 restaurant or retail tenants. Floors 3 through 9 of the Lapham Building will be renovated into 35 one and two-bedroom apartments.
The Lapham Building, located at 290 Westminster Street and wrapping around the neighboring Tilden-Thurber Building to 158 Mathewson Street, was designed by Hoppin & Ely Architects and built for the heirs of Benjamin Lapham in 1904. The building originally was home to the Mutual Benefit Insurance Company and has had various office tenants throughout the years. The building has been largely vacant since the late 1990’s.
