Redevelopment of Keyes Plumbing Building - Barley's Brewing + Residential
January 12, 2015 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #1058759
The Keyes Plumbing building, just off the Front and Vine St. intersection, has been purchased for a forthcoming mixed use development:
“We think it will be some sort of retail/production facility-related opportunity on the first floor with commercial office or residential on the second and third floors.”January 12, 2015 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1058764
I always wanted to buy that building if I won the lottery and put an indoor pool in the warehouse part and live in the tower. The only down side is your balls will probably start glowing green after a few weeks from living 10ft away from the high tension wires.January 12, 2015 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #1058768
@Bayrea, have you been inside that building?January 13, 2015 1:02 am at 1:02 am #1058802
When is that surface lot next to this building going to be redeveloped. Here’s a little idea I had about a year ago:January 13, 2015 8:04 am at 8:04 am #1058809
I’m 90% sure there is/was an indoor pool already in there. Could’ve swore I saw a listing a couple years ago..not kidding.January 16, 2015 9:26 am at 9:26 am #1059448
Maybe Mr. Dion could buy up that whole strip from the Keyes building to the Endzone and develop that corridor into something nice!March 23, 2015 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #1068435
Barley’s Expanding Brewing Operations to Renovated Vine Street Building
March 23, 2015 4:39 pm – Walker Evans
The Keyes Plumbing building is a prominent empty building at 111-115 Vine Street, noteworthy for the fact that it’s well maintained and yet vacant in an otherwise busy stretch between The Arena District and The North Market. That is planned to change soon as new owners are proposing a renovation for the building, which will partially house an expanded brewing operation for Barley’s Brewing Company.

Am I the only one that thinks this is kind of a waste? I mean it’s definitely an improvement over an empty building, and maybe they’ll add a tap room or something, but to take such an interesting building on such a busy corner so close to the convention center and turn it into an industrial use seems like a bit of a miss.March 24, 2015 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #1068578
Yeah, I’m a bit bummed out by this. There has to be other, cheaper space to put a brewing operation.March 24, 2015 1:00 pm at 1:00 pm #1068580

I dunno… a mix of uses makes a neighborhood IMHO. Having some light industrial/manufacturing jobs in the mix sounds like a fine idea to me. It’s a pretty small building/site anyway, so it’s not like it would be adaptable to a convention-style reuse (hotel?).March 24, 2015 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #1068601
I think it’s great. My dream is that one day Park St will be a full on North Market district like the area around Pike Place Market in Seattle with Brothers, Gaswerks, etc giving way to more Market stalls, so uses like this are a small step towards that, imo. I’d also love to see Park St. pedestrian only as well, but alas.March 28, 2015 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #1069269
Barley’s Expansion Would Triple Brewing Capacity
March 28, 2015 3:37 pm – Walker Evans
Earlier this week, we learned that Barley’s Brewing Company has plans to relocate their beer-making operations just two blocks away to a vacant warehouse structure across the street from BBR. While Jason Fabian, General Manager at Barley’s, says that no lease has been signed yet, he said that the project is moving forward steadily and has been something they’ve been working on for awhile.

I was in this building last summer. The Keyes were still living there and having a garage sale as they prepared to move out. There is still a pool in the half of the warehouse closest to the tower part of the building. The warehouse currently has a giant concrete block wall separating the pool room from the garage portion of the building.November 20, 2015 10:29 am at 10:29 am #1103256
Just saw yesterday that this building is back on the market. Did the plans fall through on the expansion? Anyone heard any updates….November 20, 2015 11:43 am at 11:43 am #1103274

The expansion in that spot is no longer happening, but the expansion is not cancelled. Should be hearing more soon about the new location, as well as an update on the new use planned for that building. ;) Stay tuned!
