The Ben E Wolf building at the corner of 3rd and Garrison Avenue in Historic Fort Smith Arkansas, comes to the market having been brought back to much of its original Mercantile Glory! With 4000 square feet on the sales floor, show case windows, office space with private bath, vault room, public ADA bathroom plus additional space on the mezzanine, Retail, Lounge, Restaurant, Bar, Office, it’s all possible. The most recent home of Lux Haus, an upscale furniture, decor and interior design boutique. Upstairs (an additional 4000 square feet) remains turn of the century with its original wood plank flooring and ornate tin metal ceiling. The large sunlight transom and front floor to ceiling windows drown the space with natural light. This could make two of the most unique studio apartments. (with city approval) In the basement you’ll find the utilities of the building. Two new heat pumps, updated electrical, the elevator shaft and all the former bar plumbing still in place. A new TPO roof was just installed and Historic Tax Preservation Credits are still available. Dream BIG with BEN. He did, and you can too!
