Footwise move creates musical chairs at Heilbroner Building

5 Jun

Brad Perron, owner of the Heilbroner Building at Third and Cascade in Hood River, at long last has a chance to complete the facelift on Hood River’s first steel-frame structure.

After Footwise pulled out for an Oak Avenue presence, Perron could pursue plans to strip the brick skin and reveal the cast iron girders underneath. He plans to replace the brick with fine wood casings for the windows, and split that space east-west into two units. Director’s Mortgage will move into the unit facing exclusively onto Third. Current Commercial will move into the current Director’s Mortgage space.

And someone — hint, hint … this could be you — will find huge appeal to the wall of windows facing Cascade and wrapping the corner. Perron thinks it would make a perfect gallery space, complementing the Columbia Center for the Arts just to the east. At nearly 700 square feet, it will rent for around $1,000 a month.

Look for loads of activity there in the next month. Director’s hopes to be in its new space by July 1. Perron is hoping to have the corner space finished by July 15. Call him at 541-541-993-9939 if you want to talk.
