Real estate investors purchase James Joyce PubA picture of the James Joyce Irish Pub from the CBRE marketing brochure.
There will soon be signs of life again at the James Joyce Pub, which has been vacant since 2012.
Tyler Edgarton of Raulet Property Partners provided Decaturish with an update.
“We did close on the property and have started some initial clean ups,” he said.
He said the broker is Harold Schumacher.
Edgarton is partnering with Steve Schwartz of Corporate Property Advisors to buy the former pub and find a new tenant. Edgarton, who is also a member of the investment group behind Mailing Avenue StageWorks, notified the state Film Office that the James Joyce building is available as a filming location. His plan is to attract a restaurant to move into the property.
He said he does not have a specific timetable for when that might happen.
“A crew went out and got rid of the weeds, did some interior clean up, etc.,” Edgarton said. “A paver is heading out this week to reseal and stripe the parking lot. We are meeting with an architect or two to look at longer term changes.”
