Extremely rare- Drive Thru usage allowed by right!! This endcap unit at the completely remodeled Hillside Center offers direct visibility and frontage on 16th Street and 54th Avenue North in St. Pete, boasting a daily traffic count of approximately 24,000 cars. Directly off the 54th Avenue interstate exit, this unit is on the “home” side of the road for those heading back to Northeast St. Pete. Site is zoned CCS-1, one of the most desirable zoning categories in the city, allowing for uses such as restaurant, bank, microbrewery, office, retail, studio, health club, light manufacturing, and more. The available endcap unit at the Hillside Center is comprised of 2,250 square of interior space and 700 square feet of dedicated exterior space. This unit has been completely updated to include central ac with exposed ducting, 11 foot ceiling height with industrial look exposed metal rafters, professionally restored terrazzo floors throughout, new lighting, new baseboards, two separate AC units, two completely remodeled ADA bathrooms, and a private office. In addition, the building exterior is concrete block construction, includes three-phase electric service, and has overhead garage door access for rear loading. Perfect for a coffee shop, cafe, restaurant, office or retail store; basically any business that wants high visibility at a low price. It is very rare to find drive thru allowance on the market in St. Pete that is not “build to suit” new construction. And not often can you find a commercial unit with this zoning, and this visibility, for this price! Price is modified gross; landlord covers all common area maintenance (CAM) costs, lawn care, and property taxes. In addition, parking lot and roof are brand new (2023); in addition to rent, tenant only responsible for interior unit buildout and interior unit maintenance.
