Parmelee & Howe Building Looking for Tenants

17 May

The Wilmington Fund, VT is finishing renovations at the historic Parmelee  & Howe building and is ready for tenants.

In late 2011, a charitable foundation, The Wilmington Fund, VT was formed to help rebuild and revitalize our Town following the devastation of Irene.   Our goal is to acquire and save some important buildings in the Village and well as aid charitable projects such as the Northstar Bowl, Dots, and others.

Our renovations at the Parmelee & Howe building will be completed by June, and we are now seeking small business tenants to come in at favorable lease terms to help reinvigorate our community’s economic base.  We will have four potential spaces available, two downstairs and two upstairs; for shops, galleries, food establishments, or office space.  The Parmelee & Howe building is one of Wilmington’s prominent structures.  It has a history of housing many successful businesses, including a hardware store, pharmacy, boutique, art gallery, and coffee shop among other uses.  The building’s location at the traffic light intersection of Route 9 and 100, makes it critical for showcasing our downtown rebirth and is ideal for pedestrian traffic.

Interested tenants should contact the Fund at 14 Castle Hill Road, or call John Gannon at 802-490-4327, or Bruce Mullen at 802-464-8998 for further details.  Interested tenants should prepare a Letter of Interest by Friday June 1st, and a detailed business plan by Friday June 15th.
