If you’re looking to open a business in downtown Fayetteville, you may have just found the perfect spot.

Commercial space is now available inside 200 W. Center St., at the corner of Church Street just off the Fayetteville square.

The 1940s-built building where Procter & Gamble got their start in Fayetteville has been stripped to the artfully-exposed brick walls and large windows overlooking the downtown area, and is ready to become something awesome.

About 2,700 square feet of commercial space is available on the main floor, and around 1,200 square feet are available on the first floor with an entrance on Church Street. The space could be configured to suit just one, or multiple tenants.

Fayetteville-based coffee company Arsaga’s is already on board to open a new shop near the front of the building, but there’s still plenty of room for a cool restaurant, retail store, or office.

The building is owned by local architecture firm Modus Studio and developers Specialized Real Estate Group, who are in the process of fully renovating the space. A new facade on the front of the building, including a large covered outdoor patio with seating along the street are included in the plans.

“We’ve had a lot of interest, but we want to make sure that we get the word out so that we don’t miss out on the perfect tenant for this building,” said Corey Runnells, VP at Specialized Real Estate Group. “We’re committed to finding a great mix of tenants for this building. We want it to be a long-term success.”

The building owners are planning to select tenants for the space by early November. Renovations to the building will be complete in late winter, and businesses could be open in the space by early spring.
