Downtown Oberlin will be seeing some new business faces in the very near future. The East College Street Project is just about finished and they will be holding an open house next Saturday, October 9, from 2:00 to 4:00. This revitalized corner on College and Pleasant Streets could turn Oberlin into a destination hot spot and create a hub for activity.
Already opened is the Slow Train Cafe, a locally owned coffee shop, wine and drink bar with musical entertainment. With their free WIFI, you can surf and sip til your heart’s content! Soon to open is Magpie Pizza, a gourmet pizza shop featuring fresh, quality ingredients served in a casual atmosphere. Kim’s Market is planning to sell Asian foods plus fresh homemade authentic Korean food for carry out. Cafe Sprouts, a vegan juice bar, just recently had it’s grand opening. A unique furniture gallery called Tansu will open soon as will Isabella and Company accountant firm.
The East College Street Project is a LEED building and is available for both residential and commercial leasing. Just 1,600 square feet of retail space and 2,500 square feet of office and studio space remain to be leased so it will be fun to see what other new and unique businesses will move into downtown Oberlin. Of the 33 available condo apartments, only 8 remain to be leased.
So when you come to stay at Hallauer House B & B be sure to visit the new businesses in our bustling down town. We may be a small town but we have a big city atmosphere! We’ll see you at the open house next Satruday, Oct.9.
