Thinking of opening a business, expanding your business, or perhaps moving your business to La Crosse?
is currently offering a lease on the former Scientific College of Beauty and Barbering
, a 10,840 square foot space
in downtown La Crosse, on Historic Pearl Street.
The 2-story building is currently equipped as a salon/beauty school, and would make a perfect day spa/salon. Most fixtures remain, including dozens of salon chairs, shampoo chairs, industrial dryers, massage tables, facial tables, etc. Since the former school closed, crews have been cleaning and upgrading the space, so it could easily be re-opened as a beauty school.
In addition to the 10,840 sq ft on the first and second floors, the building also features a 5,000 square foot clean basement
with concrete floors (which is not always common in historic buildings.
The basement, first floor, and second floor are all accessed by stairways, and also by a modern passenger elevator
(not so common in these historic downtown buildings). The HVAC system for the building was completely replaced in June of 2008
by Schneider Heating and Air Conditioning. Two independent systems heat and cool the basement/first floor, and the 2nd floor.
The second floor of the property features a 2000 square foot open space with hardwood floors
, as well as 2 massage rooms, a teachers lounge, two large classrooms, an office, and several vast storage closet/rooms. Renovations are currently underway to resurface the 1940s-era Maple floors that run throughout the 2nd floor.
The access to the second floor, should you choose to bypass the passenger elevator, is a grand spiral staircase that features a 15 ft by 20 ft curved glass block window.
The staircase is bathed in natural light during the day.
This building would be easy to re-open as a school of cosmetology,
but would also be an exceptional restaurant, retail space, or very
unique offices space.
has recently removed the 1970s building facade to reveal the building as it was in the 1940s, with white enamel art-deco brick, and a mix of very large clear glass windows as well as period-style glass block windows. The 2nd floor now explodes with natural light during the daytime. In the Spring of 2009, the brick facade will undergo further restoration and improvements.
As of November 2008, this property is the biggest space available in downtown La Crosse, and the only space available on historic Pearl Street.
Triple-net lease is below market value for similar properties, although there is nothing else quite like the Peter Newburg building on Pearl.
